Point Man (2018)
Point Man is a feature-length film about the Vietnam War. Set in April 1968 – three months after the tide-turning Tet Offensive and one month after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. – Point Man is the story of a U.S. Army fire team fractured by racial tensions, moral crises, and the crushing pressures of combat in a war nobody wants to fight. In the middle of all of it is Casper, a rough-edged ideologue whose radical politics put him at odds with the squad’s machine gunner, Meeks. When their search-and-destroy mission in Vietnam’s river delta goes terribly wrong, both men find themselves pitted against the recalcitrant platoon commander, Lieutenant Sutter. Point men die like flies in the bush, and as loyalties dissolve every step forward comes with a price.
