Hearts and Minds is incredible the way the clips are juxtaposed and braided together to make one of the strongest antiwar statements you will ever see. But be prepared to be put through the wringer. Expect to feel shock, grief, anger, shame, and disbelief at some people’s stupidity and inhumanity (or closed-mindedness because there’s so much at stake, like the father who had to cling to the belief that his son’s death was for something noble); expect to feel love and respect for those who gain consciousness (yes, at a very high price!) through their war experiences….and for the Vietnamese coffin maker, for speaking his mind….
