Superb Anti-War Film!! Martin Sheen Purely at his Best!!
This 1971 Movie was filmed during the peak of the Vietnam Anti-War movement is practically a one man show starring Martin Sheen as a concientious objector and deserter during the American Civil War in the 1860's and how his survival tactics against in the isolated mountains of West Virginia.There's also great background music and beautiful nature photography along with Martin Sheen's exquisite acting ability considering he's the about the only person in the film with the exception of a few faceless voices,he also expresses himself well concerning the psychological trauma he faces after years of isolation hiding in the mountains.It's an interesting, must see Superb Anti-War film!!
