Peter Davis' 30-year-old, landmark documentary unflinchingly confronts the United States' involvement in Vietnam.
Using a wealth of sources -- from interviews to newsreels to documentary footage of the conflict at home and abroad -- Davis constructs a powerfully affecting portrait of the disastrous effects of war. 'Hearts and Minds' is an overwhelming emotional experience and the controversial winner of the 1974 Academy Award for best documentary.
