Vietnam War from the 'other side'
- Heaven and Earth review by CP Customer
Oliver Stone’s 1993 Heaven & Earth is the only major American film to depict the Vietnam conflict from ‘the other side,’ marking a shift in interpretation. Capturing a different culture, audiences look at the U.S. troops as foreigners. Moreover, every side is given a degree of responsibility for the tragedy – the Americans, the Viet Cong, South Vietnamese, and the French. Shot with strong colours and grand music, this film matches the quality of Stone's "Platoon" (1986) and "Born on the Fourth of July" (1989).
