    Almost done with this. What an incredible film. Absolutely timeless. And should be a required movie for all adolescents. A story about friendship, finding yourself, struggling with your naive parents. 

    Maybe our adolescents are smarter than let on? Let’s not indoctrinate them. But, educate them.

    Completely blown away. An incredible visionary and progressive artist. Pushing the boundaries of filmmaking and art to the next level. 

    I’m what you would consider a Kubrick noob. I’ve only seen 2001 and yours truly. But the style of directing is timeless. And the sets look modern. Adorned realistically, sophisticated. 

    Simplistic directing and choice of shots, color. Beautiful, haunting score. And a look into what the Vietnam war was like. Matter of fact all war. How it changes men. 

    In this incredible, epic of filmmaking you see human behavior stripped. And our relationships toward it.

    Wow. Val Kilmer gave the best performance I’ve ever seen. Completely forgot I was watching an actor. I thought Jim was resurrected and brought back to act. Completely and utterly entranced and hypnotized. I am surprised this performance isn’t more widely regarded.

    Oliver Stone did an incredible job. His true vision shines through and catches the counterculture revolution of the 60’s in a pristine manner.

    The poster doesn’t do it justice. The beginning is a bit slow. But Val’s performance forgives all.

    Heartbreaking, with a sense realism, that brings hopelessness. Leo’s performance is stunning and made the movie into a caste of prestige it would’ve not gotten otherwise. Coupled with a phenomenal soundtrack this movie will remain one of the greats, inviolate of other competing films.
