Religion And Politics In Films About The Vietnam War

29 06 2008

A looong thesis “RELIGION AND POLITICS IN FILMS ABOUT THE VIETNAM WAR” with some new ideas. Starts to be interesting from the page 10 down.

QUOTE: The metaphor of motion pictures helps explain a two-sided emotion: the feeling of participating in events far beyond ordinary experience (blown up on a huge screen) yet being powerless to control the outcome of the story. He feels at once the heady self importance of the movie star and the helplessness of the moviegoer, impotent to affect the actions unfolding on the screen.

By the late sixties, soldiers turned against the war in droves. Many of them wrote UUUU on their helmets, representing the unwilling, led by the unqualified, doing the unnecessary, for the ungrateful.
