Audience Reviews for 84 Charlie Mopic

One of the best and little viewed Vietnam pictures. Patrick Duncan perhaps suffered from the fatigue of viewers who had been inundated with bigger budget productions. Perhaps audiences were Vietnamed out. Nonetheless, this is a unique perspective and worth tracking down.
