Riding the Tiger

Riding the Tiger

Available on Prime Video
A haunting and lyrical evocation of the hubris, despair and devastation of the American war in Vietnam. Archival film-- gorgeous and chilling-- and footage of a B-52 graveyard are combined with the voices of GIs, Vietnamese villagers, and journalists, which add human counterpoint to the remarkable images onscreen. Not a treatise, not a polemic, but an artful look back at a dark, troubling time.
