I have 0 point of reference for anything about that. Can't wait to read up about it after this 5 hour behemoth.

On that note, what are the more notable animal documentaries? Just the ones BBC does (planet earth, africa etc?)

Has anyone seen Last Days in Vietnam? Thoughts?

I saw it in theatres last fall and I wasn't hugely impressed. I love a good historical documentary, but Last Days in Vietnam really lacks oomph. My biggest criticism is that they strangely don't really establish a sense of urgency and tension - they cover the North Vietnamese invasion of Saigon during its initial stages, but then they perplexingly basically ignore the advance of Communist troops until the very end of the documentary. During most of the running time of the movie, right up to the final American evacuations, I basically had no idea how close or far the enemy was. It's worth watching with some great interviews and reconstructions of events, but the director wasted an opportunity to really make it a compelling story.

That's dissapointing. Any reccomendations for a Vietnam doc then?

I'm surprised how dated everything is; has there not been much new information in regards to Vietnam since 74?

That's all I ask for in a Vietnam doc; some insurgents getting shot to Fortunate Son
