  1. Sir! No Sir! is far from a dry rehashing of what may seem for some like ancient history. Driving guitar rock and lively editing add to the film's urgency. The voices of the veterans alone, however, make this an important and poignant film that can speak to any generation.

    Zieger's thoroughly researched film is a vital reminder that beginning in the mid-'60s, a few conscience-stricken military individuals -- including dermatologist Dr. Howard Levy, sickened by cynical attempts to win Vietnamese "hearts and minds" through medical treatment, and Navy nurse Susan Schnall, who wore her uniform to a civilian antiwar demonstration -- actively and openly voiced peace sentiments.

I didn't realize how big the anit-war movement was (a I was child at the time) and all the disinformation that was coming from our government.

Young people should see this movie as it may foreshawdow events concerning the Iraq war. Full Review »

We could use more people like those in the 60's anti-war movement today, both inside and outside the military. This is a wonderful, inspiring documentary about a very horrible example of U.S. imperialism and how it can be resisted. Full Review »
