Casualties of War 12/09/17

Explosive Media (Germany)
Region B Blu-ray

Charlie Largent takes the pulse of Brian De Palma’s true-life Vietnam story of an appalling ‘Incident on Hill 192.’ Combat is combat and boys will be boys, they say, and their horrible crime against a young woman is good ‘for the morale of the squad.’ Michael J. Fox is a throw back to the Audie Murphy-style of soldier: fresh-faced, optimistic and decidedly the odd man out in his own platoon. Sean Penn and John C. Reilly co-star; the music is by Ennio Morricone. On Region B Blu-ray from Explosive┬áMedia (De).
