The Quiet American
« on: February 28, 2003, 04:49:27 PM »
I saw this film tonight, and I just loved it.  Terrific movie.  It's good to see Michael Caine making good movies on a regular basis.  Or fairly regular.

If you're interested in the "post-Vietnam War" Vietnam, by all means, check this movie out.  It has a lot to say both about the war and even the struggles of Vietnamese women, what with the fact that it was fairly routine for American soldiers (and others, of course) to seduce them while they were there, promise marriage, and jet off to their wives in America when their duties were done.

Very thought-provoking, well-acted, very well written, and contains scenes that will stickvery clearly in your mind, no doubt, for days and days.

Check it out.

and man has therefore created him,
he has created him in his own image and likeness."
