The Quiet American

Vrijdag 28 mei 2010 van 20:30 tot 22:25 uur op RTL 8. Verfilming van het gelijknamige boek van Graham Greene door Phillip Noyce met Michael Caine en Brendan Fraser.

Nota bene, filmpje bevat spoiler.

BrothersJudd.com: The prescient pessimism that pervades this book is it’s most interesting feature. Greene, writing well before we really got involved, seemed to sense that Vietnam was a tar baby that we idealistic Americans would not be able to resist embracing. Pyle’s bloody blundering seems to presage the well-intended but disastrous mess that we would make of the entire country in the decades to come. One wishes that men like Robert McNamara and the Kennedys had paid attention to this literate warning.
