Winter Soldier (1972)

No director credited
My rating: 3 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia
(DVD, Oscilloscope Laboratories)

Recent Vietnam Veterans hold a press conference in Detroit to recount atrocities they observed or participated in during their time in Vietnam. Their description is explicit, believable and horrifying. Blame is squarely put on military "brainwashing", in which they are trained to de-humanize the enemy and get as many "kills" as possible. An extremely powerful anti-war testimony, just as relevant today as it was when released (and subsequently ignored).
