For #38 of the #DLMChallenge #365moviesin365days on March 25th I watched: Good Morning, Vietnam.
I’m using this year’s challenge to catch up on all of the great Robin Williams performances that I’ve sorely missed (more to come later). This film is funny, touching, and a harsh commentary on the animosity soldiers in other countries faced from the native population (whether it’s warranted or not is not what’s pertinent to this discussion).
Robin Williams… Man, he could sure pull you in and keep you there for the entire movie.
