    focused on the Tet Offensive and how it changed the course of the war and how it turned U S perspectives and defense strategies in recent wars For his documentary the young student is looking to interview Vietnam veterans who served in the war during Tet 68 especially those who were in intelligence This would help enhance the documentary with many perspectives he says If you re interested send an email to ravikumar31893 sas edu sg and mention that you read about the project on The VVA Veteran magazine s Arts of War on the web page Posted on December 6th 2012 in Artistic Queries Documentaries In the Classroom Oliver Stone s Untold U S History Oliver Stone s Untold History of the United States is the hyped up title of a new ten part documentary series that begins tonight Monday November 12 on Showtime In it Stone the often hyperbolic Hollywood director and screen writer who served as an infantryman in the Vietnam War trains his penetrating lens on big historical events beginning with World War II The series is based on the just published door stopper 784 page of a book of the same name Stone wrote with Peter Kuznick an American University history professor In the book and TV series Kuznick and Stone Platoon Born on the Fourth of July JFK et al concern themselves primarily with what they firmly believe the United States has done wrong on the world and domestic stages rather than noting what America has done right In her mixed review of the series in The New York Times Alessandra Stanley calls Stone a dramatist of truth who tramples facts to spin alternative histories that may be grandiose and grotesque but can sometimes have a hint of grandeur On the other hand she says it s too easy to focus on what Mr Stone does wrong it s also useful to focus a spotlight on what he gets right Still Stanley notes in all the overblown rhetoric and self righteous hyperbole Mr Stone is his own narrator accuracy is sometimes hard to find Mary McNamara the Los Angeles Times TV critic had a similar assessment The series she wrote is a hodgepodge of terrific if often disturbing historical footage and bizarre theatrical asides It seems more than anything a response to the notion of American exceptionalism though it s difficult to imagine that those Americans who do believe as Stone puts it that America is the center of the universe and always the good guy will be swayed by him The series narrative she says is too often just as one note as the versions Stone seeks to replace Stone McNamara concludes presents his case with little recognition of the social political and psychological complexities that dominate much of human development turning it intentionally or not into an alternative mythology that relies far more on broad stroke storytelling than rigorous analysis Posted on November 12th 2012 in Documentaries History On TV Vietnam TV
