84 Charlie MoPic deserves a place by itself among the films about Vietnam.

A sharply observed drama about the Vietnam War, Patrick Sheane Duncan's indie, 84 Charlie mopic (title refers to motion picture), depicts in a realistic way the emergence of camardaerie among a reconnaissance squad from the POV of a cameraman.

Audience Reviews for 84 Charlie Mopic

One of the best and little viewed Vietnam pictures. Patrick Duncan perhaps suffered from the fatigue of viewers who had been inundated with bigger budget productions. Perhaps audiences were Vietnamed out. Nonetheless, this is a unique perspective and worth tracking down.
