Flick Pick: Hamburger Hill

Hamburger Hill
(RKO, 1987)

Unlike Platoon, victim of Oliver Stone's hashpipe fantasies, this flick comes far closer to telling everyman's experiences in Vietnam by focusing on a real event, in this case an actual battle from May of 1969. Great actors doing the big things and the small things well, attention to details, and a location setting where you feel like you're there, rather than trying to double for the location, badly.
