Riding the Tiger2000

The Hubris and Despair of the Vietnam War

  • 3.7
RIDING THE TIGER is a haunting and lyrical evocation of the hubris, despair and devastation of the American war in Vietnam. Archival film, both 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 reminiscence that makes eloquent sense of a dark and troubling time.
