Did you enjoy his documentaries on the history of jazz or the American civil war?
Now that blind rage, confusion and meaningless violence is trendy again, Ken Burns and Lynn Novick are back with 18 hours on the Vietnam war.
Expect the unusual. Expect it to be slow and thorough. Expect it to be mesmerizing. Expect both sides to be allowed to tell their story. Expect to learn (yes, that awful thing we used to do).
I haven´t seen it yet, mind you. But Ken Burns is Ken Burns. He´s not known to do things halfarsed.
So if you´re only planning to watch one ten episode documentary about the Vietnam war this fall, you should make it this one. Available where you can find it.
