I heard a panel discussion after this, and I found it interesting that they said the human element is what will make people take action when this movie focused more on statistics and shots of the scarred landscape. I actually think more focus on the people affected would have improved this movie.

Timothy S (ag) wrote: A lot of great movies have been made about the Vietnam War and the after effects it had on the soldiers once they returned home, and while I consider "Dead Presidents" to be a very good film it doesn't join the ranks of the great ones dealing with this same subject matter. This isn't a serious exploration of the black experience during the war but instead pure entertainment, but it is very successful at that.The Hughes Brothers are exceptional filmmakers, as they proved in their debut feature "Menace II Society", and this is a beautifully shot picture with a talented young cast. The violence is shocking, brutal and ridiculously overstated with the intent of making the movie feel real and it works in the first half. However, it's hard to accept that this young, first-time offenders would be this savage during the heist at the end.Perhaps the best moments occur before Larenz Tate and his friends enlist, in the scenes where he builds a paternal bond with Keith David and his budding romance with Rose Jackson. It's a perfect portrayal of what life was during that time and place, and the directors know how to find just the right song to fit the mood.What follows is visceral and electric filmmaking, brimming with verve and energy, but it misses several opportunities to say something of significance. The recent film "The Walking Dead" would be a better choice if that's what you're looking for, but "Dead Presidents" is thrilling entertainment showcasing two up-and-coming directors honing their craft. The vibrancy of their storytelling makes up for any holes in the story being told.

Joel A (gb) wrote: A rather unusual against the grain drama about a struggling couple in an army base in the southern most parts of USA.Basically Marlon Brando is closeted Homosexual & Elizabeth Taylor is his cheating wife. Marlon begins to get fascinated in a young soldier who seems to have his strange desires on Taylor.Very taboo & ahead of its time for 1967 & touches on many fears & insecurities of the day. Many memorable especially where Taylor whips Brando with a horse whip after she finds out her assaulted her horse. Very challenging & confronting film.

One of the sons thinks he's the returned Christ. The crisis deepens when a beloved daughter-in-law dies during labor, but then a miracle occurs... A profound and beautifully filmed movie.
