From The Green Berets to Apocalypse Now and Platoon, the cinematic legacy of the Vietnam War is vast, intense and now, for the first time, is documented as a single genre, in one single volume.??
Search & Destroy contains illustrated essays covering over 300 movies, including documentaries. It examines some of the most controversial and psychotic characters in cinematic history, such as Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver, Dennis Hopper in Tracks and Sylvester Stallone in First Blood. From the brutal field of combat, to the flashbacks and demons that followed, Search & Destroy examines the cult classics through to the most recent Vietnam movies, still breaking box-office records today.?

Buchbeschreibung Creation Books, London, 2003. Paperback. Buchzustand: New. First Edition. From the early gung-ho posturing of John Wayne in The Green Berets to the psychedelic rites of Apocalypse Now and the stark combat horrors of Platoon, The Deer Hunter and Full Metal Jacket, SEARCH & DESTROY is a guide to the way Hollywood has progressively portrayed the Vietnam war. From Travis Bickle in Scorsese’s classic Taxi Driver to the brutal rapist of hardcore porn movie Forced Entry, psychotic Vietnam veterans have been wreaking screen havoc from the early ‘70s onwards. Dennis Hopper in Tracks, Sylvester Stallone in First Blood, Robert Ginty in The Exterminator; these disparate characters are all driven by the same demons and blood-drenched flashbacks, haunted by the spectre of Nam. And in graphic films such as Jacob’s Ladder, Troma’s Combat Shock, and Antonio Margheriti’s Cannibal Apocalypse, Viet vets are subjected to the horrors of physical or mental mutation after being exposed to chemical warfare and experimentation in Nam. SEARCH & DESTROY contains illustrated essays on these and hundreds of other movies, ranging from the combat traumas graphically displayed in documentaries such as Army Medicine In Vietnam, to the most garish exploitation movies and gun-fixated redneck trash. SEARCH & DESTROY is the ultimate guide to the cinematic legacy of Vietnam, a harrowing trip into the heart of darkness. Jack Hunter is the author of Inside Teradome and Eros In Hell, and editor of many other film studies. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 043766
