Winter Soldier

A-

An as-yet-unknown Barbara Kopple was among the 19 activist filmmakers whose footage of 1971 testimony from 125 shattered Vietnam veterans makes up the utterly wrenching, timely historical document Winter Soldier. The collective black-and-white camera work is wobbly, the sound is iffy, the editing is for crap, and the thing is crucial viewing — an unprettied, unfiltered, un?Michael Moored yowl of pain and warning from ex-GIs that sears in an entirely new way when watched now, during an entirely new war that results in the same old death.
