The first flick in Sidney J. Furie’s Vietnam Trilogy (UNDER HEAVY FIRE, THE VETERAN are the 2md and 3rd entries). THE BOYS IN COMPANY C is one of the best the films about that war and the general mindset of the troops who served there. It’s kind of interesting that vets often cite this film and Trenchard-Smith’s SIEGE ON FIREBASE GLORIA as some of the best. The power of the grindhouse; fuck you, Oliver Stone. COMPANY C pre-dates FULL METAL JACKET and odds are that Kubrick saw this at some point and used it as inspiration for his flick which doesn’t hold a candle to Furie’s work. Do yourself a favor and see this flick, and if you’ve already caught it, it deserves a re-watch.
SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
