Best War Movies of 1972
This historical drama is an account of the early life of British politician Winston Churchill, including his childhood years, his time as a war correspondent in Africa, and culminating with his first election to Parliament.
The Triple Echo
A WW2 deserter holes up on a farm with disastrous results. Overlooked gem with Glenda Jackson in one of her best roles and Oliver Reed playing a part he was made for.
For three days in 1971, former US soldiers who were in Vietnam testify in Detroit about their war experiences. Nearly 30 speak, describing atrocities personally committed or witnessed, telling of inaccurate body counts, and recounting the process of destroying a village.
On The Docks
Adaptation of a lesser known to Western world, yet wildly popular Peking Opera developed during the Cultural Revolution under the leadership of Jiang Qing.
Raid on the White Tiger Regiment
This classic revolutionary model opera is based on a true story during the relatively short-term military conflict in which South Korea's best elite troop the White Tiger Regiment, that was a mechanized force fully equipped by the United States and boasted of being invincible (in a typical South Korean manner of bragging and fabricating), was destroyed in a raid.
