In the Year of the Pig (1968)

Dir. Emile de Antonio

Only those interested in the politics of Vietnam would be interested in this documentary. What I found interesting and different in this documentary is that it examines the country from 1954 with the French; the film gives you a background before the US involvement. My score deserves a higher rating in terms of its quality, so the score reflects more of my preference.

De Antonio has some skillfully juxtaposes images to make interesting parallels and political points–e.g. using American Civil War images. The dvd also came with an interview with de Antonio that I liked.
