We haven't got space to do justice to David Zeiger's important historical documentary Sir! No Sir! but suffice it to say that it will change your understanding of the Vietnam era, even if you were alive then.
I expected to emerge depressed by how long these stories have gone untold, but the speakers' courage and humanity are a shot in the arm.
Zeiger's movie is a timely salute to the risky and brave men and women who had the temerity not only to think for themselves but to speak their minds.
Shines a light on a forgotten corner of the antiwar movement: the men (and a few women) who returned from their tours of duty filled with doubt and disillusionment over what they saw, and did, there.
About an almost-forgotten fact of the Vietnam era: Anti-war sentiment among U.S. troops grew into a problem for the Pentagon.
Honors those who fought, then questioned the morality of that fight, then joined the national protest.
An aimless pastiche of archival footage and current interviews of former Vietnam vets court-martialed and jailed for their anti-war activities.
The power Sir! No Sir! has as a film overrides any problems it presents.
David Zeiger's documentary feature Sir! No Sir! might be described as a therapeutic film, since it seeks to cure some small part of America's amnesia.
Not only a fascinating illumination of a blotted-out part of the counter-cultural, popular-protest '60s, but a timely questioning of patriotism and duty in the midst of an increasingly unjustifiable war.
Zeiger makes good use of archival footage, photos and sound bites from the period. And the frankness of his interview subjects is refreshing.
Zeiger presents a trippy alternative history that prompts questions about what today's troops in Iraq might be thinking.
Memorable documentary on the trials and tribulations of those who protested the Vietnam war...who actually were in Vietnam. The history of the soliders who rebelled on the field and their lives afterwards. A good addition to the Vietnam canon of film.
