Fourteen Army recruits try again and again to stomach a spatter hill in Vietnam. Music by Philip Glass.
Unjustly overshadowed during Oliver Stone's Platoon and Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket, John Irvin's Hamburger Hill is little short of their equal. The tidings has the paradigm directness of a past cycle of war movies: troops of the 101st Airborne Frontier engage in battle Hill 937 in the Ashau Valley, Vietnam, and after 10 days and 11 assaults, when everyone has been put through the meat grinder, the hill is renamed after America's favourite fast provisions. Reducing the Vietnam War to the level of banner — owing much to Lewis Milestone's Korean War epic Pork Chop Hill — is an efficient means of conveying the unproductive immolate, and Irvin does the messy job superbly. Not for the lily-livered.

"...Completely cooked produced and directed with an eye to documentary- realism and authenticity..."
