17/08/14 Good Morning Vietnam (1987)

Anyone who reads this shit is likely to be aware that Robin Williams killed himself this week, allowing newspaper columnists a great opportunity to declare their (previously unmentioned) lifelong fanship, filling their articles with Twitter quotes from people who once spent some time in the man's company and TV channels to fill their schedules with whatever films of his they have the broadcast rights to.

Seemed like a nice guy, but I never met him myself so I dunno. As for the film, it's pretty woolly, undemanding stuff but it does take an admirable, defiantly neutral position, presenting everyone involved in the war as equally flawed and human. Excellent soundtrack as well.
