Emotion & Drama Run High
14 November 2018 | by StrictlyConfidentialSee all my reviews

*Note* - This "anti-war" documentary, directed by Glenn Silber, was originally released back in 1979.

"The War At Home" is widely considered to be one of the most important political films ever made. And, once you have seen it for yourself you'll completely understand why it has earned itself such high recognition.

Covering the pivotal years from 1961-1975 - This first-rate documentary contains some of the most incredible archival "anti-war protest" footage that you are ever gonna see. It'll really knock your socks off.

This 100-minute presentation also includes a number of very relevant interviews with some of the men who had actually fought in the Vietnam War.
