A list of films about, or related to the Vietnam War, and the "battle for hearts and minds". This includes films about Vietnam veterans after the war, as long as the war, or it's potential effects on people, such as PTSD for example, play a significant role in the story.

Only films in English are listed so far, and made for TV films, and documentaries aren't included. I may add them later.

A Work in progress. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

The Killing Fields is not a Vietnam War movie is it?
Posted: 8 years, 3 months ago at Jun 11 21:46
@Shaun
It's tied to the Vietnam War, yes, but it's not about American soldiers fighting in Vietnam, if that's what you mean?

What about one of the greatest films to ever deal with the effects of Vietnam? Rambo:First Blood. That movie RULES!

@ASP
Wow...How the hell did I miss that one? Thanks!

you should really really see Winter Soldier. soldiers recalling eye witnessed and perpetrated war atrocities. it is a documentary but, essential.

The Big Lebowski? heh.

@ethereal_tard
Winter Soldier eh? Haven't heard of that one. I'll definitely check it out. It's from the early 70s, so I'll likely dig it. I will probably add documentaries and TV movies/shows to this list at some point. No reason not to.

And I had thought about adding Big Lebowski, because it's great, but it's just too much of a stretch, I think. Walter is a crazy Vietnam War vet, yes, but he isn't the protagonist, and it doesn't play too big a part in the overall story. Still...it IS a great movie...

Might want to take out 'The Killing Fields' - that is based on the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia.
Posted: 6 years, 5 months ago at Apr 1 21:06
@Phil_Sump
The Killing Fields has been removed. It may all be related to the war in Vietnam, but I guess it was too much of a stretch. Thanks.

Hey Trebek I've made a little list of just the top ones, would be good to get your opinion (and anyone elses)...

Thanks

The Vietnamese film When the Tenth Month Comes is a masterpiece.

For documentaries, I would recommend Hearts and Minds, Hanoi Tuesday the 13th, In the Year of the Pig, Far from Vietnam, and John Pilger's films on the subject.

There's this 1979 movie called "Search and Destroy". In it a group of American soldiers leave their wounded Vietnamese guide behind and years later that guide comes to America to kill the soldiers. It's not really a good movie, but it is related to the war.

There's also this Italian movie called "Strike Commando". It is a rippoff of "Rambo 2", but it is set during the war, not after it. It even had a sequel, which is set after the war, and that one also manages to ripp off not only "Rambo 2" but also "Riders of the Lost Ark".
