Feature-length documentary exploring one of the greatest war films ever made
Oliver Stone’s Platoon. Arriving 5th October on DVD & Digital Download.
Platoon has been one of my top ten war movies for a long time and arguably one of Oliver Stone’s finest, based on his own experiences of the Vietnam War it tells the story of a group young soldiers who not only have to deal with the struggles of war but also the demons within their own platoon.
First shown in 1986 it offered an unblinkered view of what this war was really about, now after almost 35 years we get a new documentary taking a behind the seen look at what can only be considered a true classic
Oliver Stone’s Platoon is widely regarded as one of the best war films ever made and changed the face of cinema forever through its raw, honest and deeply moving portrayal of young American soldiers serving during the Vietnam war.
Now, Brothers in Arms: The Making of Platoon is the feature-length story of how this iconic, four-time Oscar winning film came to be, featuring new interviews with the actors who would go on to become major stars.
Narrated by Charlie Sheen (Anger Management, Wall Street), the cast and crew share stories making this non-union, low budget, independent film. They share memories of the gruelling boot camp, Stone’s unique directing style, the harsh filming conditions that forged their eternal brotherhood, and the lasting legacy of this cinematic masterpiece.
Featuring interviews with Johnny Depp (Black Mass, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street), Willem Dafoe (The Lighthouse, Murder on the Orient Express), Kevin Dillon (Entourage, Poseidon), Tom Berenger (Inception, Sniper), Keith David (Greenleaf, 21 Bridges), Tony Todd (The Flash, Candyman), John C. McGinley (Chicago P.D, Scrubs) and many more, Brothers in Arms: The Making of Platoon is the ultimate tribute to one of the greatest movies ever made.
