Casualties of War
An overlooked Vietnam warfilm, mainly because it's overshadowed by films like Platoon, Full Metal Jacket or Apocalypse Now! But it's certainly worth seeing. Based on a real incident about a platoon that kidnaps and rapes an innocent Vietnamese village girl.

As in Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket, the dehumanising of the soldiers is the main topic.

The music score by Ennio Morricone was one of his weaker soundtracks and even a bit bombastic, the movie would have been more tense if there would have been no music in the crucial parts. The ending of the movie felt a bit rushed but overall a very decent movie with a stellar performance by Sean Penn in the role of the 'bad guy': Sergeant Meserve.

Not one of his better works (the cinematography is fine though) but still well worth watching. His usual motives are however underdeveloped, I would even almost dare to call this a German Hollywoodfilm and that is not flattering. Fassbinder focusses more on entertaining here, it lacks some depth. It is also quite anoying to hear the same song so often during the film. Hanna Shygula is as usual fabulous in her role (although she does sing a bit false but at least she did all the singing herself). Great to see Hark Bohm in this one again as well.

Dreadful film: underdeveloped & anoying characters, the acting is very very bad, the plot is retarded and it's gore. Apart from his first zombie film, the briliant masterpiece Night of the Living Dead from 1968, everything else George Romero made is trash.
