    HEARTS AND MINDS (DUAL-FORMAT BLU-RAY/DVD Edition)
    A startling and courageous film, Peter Davis’s landmark 1974 documentary Hearts and Minds unflinchingly confronted the United States’ involvement in Vietnam at the height of the foment that surrounded it. Using a wealth of sources—from interviews to newsreels to footage of the conflict and the upheaval it occasioned on the home front—Davis constructs a powerfully affecting picture of the disastrous effects of war. Explosive, persuasive, and wrenching, Hearts and Minds is an overwhelming emotional experience and the most important nonfiction film ever made about this devastating period in history.

    If I remember right, this is the only film released by BBS Productions that wasn't included in the amazing "America Lost & Found: The BBS Story" boxset from a few years back. The completionist in me insists on getting this one!

    This isn't getting a DVD only release, so I think that pre-order is for this but has been mistakenly labeled DVD by Amazon
