Pre-dating "Platoon" by years, "The Odd Angry Shot" does not glorify war, but explores the depth of mens souls "in" war. Many Amercans have forgotten Australia was even involved in Vietnam. This is their story.
Early on a young soldier is warned that he will be well sought after for his stories when he returns home, but forgotten when people are tired of hearing them, the stories he see's unfolding are funny, sad, somber, and grotesque, but they are part of who he will become. Don't view this movie expecting an Oliver Stone-esque movie, just don't be suprised if you become part of it. It is a great movie, long overlooked.
