Thanks for the review, Mychal! I forgot Kino was releasing this; there's been so many gems coming out of late.

I saw this film when it was released in the late 60's and remember being fairly blown away by it, especially Rip Torn's performance, also the grittiness of the photography and the starkness of it all, as well as the focus on the characters, lives and feelings of the soldiers.
