"One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" in Vietnam; and damn, does it ever work. Gorgeously shot. One of the few films that actually nails the grainy documentary look and feel.
Private Roland Bozz, an intelligent and courageous draftee has a plan, how to outsmart the military system and escape from war. However, things develop differently. Great Colin Farrell. Great movie. Undervalued.
One of those American army movies that are definitely not supported by the US Army...
