MOVIE REVIEW

During a time when the United States is invading Iraq for intentions still unclear, it is refreshing to see that studios are still willing to release a few criticisms here and there. The Quiet American looks at Vietnam during the time of French occupation, just a decade before the United States declared war with the communists, with a critical opinion of motives and actions the American government took to arrive at such a declaration. That is only an underlying theme, though. On the surface, The Quiet American is a thriller about a love triangle between a British reporter, an idealistic American and a young, Vietnamese beauty that eventually leads to murder. The many-layered story makes for one of the better movies of the year. Full movie review »
