  • Arts of War on the Web » Bobbie Ann Mason on ‘In Country’
    marks on the family Mason said she didn t read any Vietnam War history books to prepare for writing the novel Mostly she says I read oral histories and memoirs Several prominent memoirs and oral histories appeared in the early eighties as the Vietnam Veterans Memorial was urged into being and veterans began to speak out The voices in those books such as Charlie Company Everything We Had and Mark Baker s Nam were riveting and alive There was a common experience a common language I could hear their voices as they reported their time in country My Vietnam vet characters came alive in my imagination because of those eloquent voices telling about the hell they had been through Mason goes on to talk about how things have changed for Vietnam veterans in the last 25 years the important role the Vietnam Veterans Memorial has in the book and how she has been drawn to writing about the consequences of war in her work You can learn more about Bobbie Ann Mason and her work at her website Comments Off on Bobbie Ann Mason on In Country Posted on July 17th 2012 in Book News Feature Films Comments are closed Contents Unsung Heroes Art Exhibit in Boston Bobbie Ann Mason Receives Kentucky Literary Honor Creative Writing Contest The Jeff Sharlet Memorial Award for Veterans Veterans in Politics radio The Photography of Muhammad Abdus Sabur in NYC New VN War Exhibit Opens at Army Heritage Center in Carlisle Pa New HBO Doc on Richard Holbrooke Jefferson Starship Free Concert in D C Nov 8 American Boys Wins Big Book Honor Eddie Adams Enduring Vietnam War Photos Children of the April Rain Play in D C Nov 10 The Draft New Vietnam War Play Tony Gleaton 1948 2015 Don Oberdorfer 1931 2015

  • Arts of War on the Web » Oliver Stone’s New Film: A Hit
    wrote the screenplay for the new movie based on the best selling novel by Don Wilslow who also gets a screen writing credit Kenneth Turan in his Los Angeles Times review praised the movie writing but had caveats about Stone s directing Oliver Stone in Vietnam in 1968 Stone has often shown an affinity for ruthless people acting ruthlessly and there s a pulp side to his directing personality that meshes well with this self consciously amoral story of a drug dealing ménage à trois facing off against a rapacious Mexican cartel Turan wrote Leave the kids at home for this one Please Stone is a director Turan said who has often felt that anything worth doing is worth overdoing and his weakness for bloody excesses of all sorts undermines much of his good work You might not think that a motion picture called Savages could be too violent too savage but you would be wrong Comments Off on Oliver Stone s New Film A Hit Posted on July 7th 2012 in Feature Films Comments are closed Contents Unsung Heroes Art Exhibit in Boston Bobbie Ann Mason Receives Kentucky Literary Honor Creative Writing Contest The Jeff Sharlet Memorial Award for Veterans Veterans in Politics radio The Photography of Muhammad Abdus Sabur in NYC New VN War Exhibit Opens at Army Heritage Center in Carlisle Pa New HBO Doc on Richard Holbrooke Jefferson Starship Free Concert in D C Nov 8 American Boys Wins Big Book Honor Eddie Adams Enduring Vietnam War Photos Children of the April Rain Play in D C Nov 10 The Draft New Vietnam War Play Tony Gleaton 1948 2015 Don Oberdorfer 1931 2015 Herbert Schandler 1928 2015 Search for Categories Archives Art Art Exhibits Artistic Queries Arts on the Web Book News Book Talk Comic Books

  • Arts of War on the Web » Bert Schneider, 1933-2011
    movie portrays the NVA and VC as one dimensional heroic freedom fighters In this version of the war American GIs raped and pillaged innocent villagers while an unseen enemy went about heroically defending its homeland against the imperialist aggressor The film s hero among American veterans is a deserter who tells his tale to a congressional committee Its villains are a series of military men who were up to no good on the ground in Vietnam and back home Some veterans in the film such as VVA founder Bobby Muller don t fit in either category But the veterans that Hearts and Minds highlights make it appear as if we were all either racist killers or apologizing wimps Everyone with an ounce of brains knows that that s not true and that the truth is much much more complex Comments Off on Bert Schneider 1933 2011 Posted on December 15th 2011 in Documentaries Feature Films Obituaries Comments are closed Contents Unsung Heroes Art Exhibit in Boston Bobbie Ann Mason Receives Kentucky Literary Honor Creative Writing Contest The Jeff Sharlet Memorial Award for Veterans Veterans in Politics radio The Photography of Muhammad Abdus Sabur in NYC New VN War Exhibit Opens at Army Heritage Center in Carlisle Pa New HBO Doc on Richard Holbrooke Jefferson Starship Free Concert in D C Nov 8 American Boys Wins Big Book Honor Eddie Adams Enduring Vietnam War Photos Children of the April Rain Play in D C Nov 10 The Draft New Vietnam War Play Tony Gleaton 1948 2015 Don Oberdorfer 1931 2015 Herbert Schandler 1928 2015 Search for Categories Archives Art Art Exhibits Artistic Queries Arts on the Web Book News Book Talk Comic Books Comments Conferences Dance Documentaries Drama Essays Events Feature Films Fiction Games History Honors and Prizes In the Classroom

  • Arts of War on the Web » Wayne’s Beret from ‘The Green Berets’ Auctioned
    becomes an invitation to grieve not for our soldiers or for Vietnam the film could not be more false or do a greater disservice to either of them but for what has happened to the fantasy making apparatus in this country Simplicities of the right simplicities of the left but this one is beyond the possible It is vile and insane On top of that it is dull Wayne starred in the film looking old and overweight as a Special Forces Colonel When the film which was shot in California was shown to the troops in Vietnam during the war it was met with derisive laughter because it was so egregiously unrealistic Comments Off on Wayne s Beret from The Green Berets Auctioned Posted on October 9th 2011 in Feature Films Comments are closed Contents Unsung Heroes Art Exhibit in Boston Bobbie Ann Mason Receives Kentucky Literary Honor Creative Writing Contest The Jeff Sharlet Memorial Award for Veterans Veterans in Politics radio The Photography of Muhammad Abdus Sabur in NYC New VN War Exhibit Opens at Army Heritage Center in Carlisle Pa New HBO Doc on Richard Holbrooke Jefferson Starship Free Concert in D C Nov 8 American Boys Wins Big Book Honor Eddie Adams Enduring Vietnam War Photos Children of the April Rain Play in D C Nov 10 The Draft New Vietnam War Play Tony Gleaton 1948 2015 Don Oberdorfer 1931 2015 Herbert Schandler 1928 2015 Search for Categories Archives Art Art Exhibits Artistic Queries Arts on the Web Book News Book Talk Comic Books Comments Conferences Dance Documentaries Drama Essays Events Feature Films Fiction Games History Honors and Prizes In the Classroom Journalism Journals Magazines Memorials Museums Music Musicals Obituaries On DVD On Line On Stage On TV Opera Photography Plays Poetry Radio Sculpture TV Series Uncategorized
