"The Anderson Platoon"
This is a documentary that was made during the film makers 6 week stay in Vietnam with a platoon that was run by Sgt. Anderson in 1966 on a seek and destroy mission. This documentary is 100 % raw and real footage no upclose interviews, no talking about the events that happened with clips of Vietnam it is from start to finish a mix of things that went on throughout the 6 week stay with the Platoon. There is very little commentary in this film only the occassional They are here on this mission......fotage. Because it is so raw and real the sound quality is not the greatest, the filming isnt the greatest and done in Black and White but for 1966 a guy with a camera in battle the filming isnt going to be. Overall this was an interesting documentary, I would have liked to maybe hear a bit more about the people but the way it was so made and so real makes it the way documentaries should always be made.
