**** - The Times
In 1971, one month after the notorious My Lai massacre, 100 Vietnam veterans gathered in a Detroit hotel conference room to testify to the horrors and crimes they had witnessed and committed during combat. Although not covered in the news at the time, the meeting was recorded by an anonymous film-making collective and turned into an angry, haunted and essential documentary-cum-confessional that went virtually unseen for more than 30 years. As with the classic Shoah, this vital time capsule presents the horrors of war unadorned.
