  • No one had a greater effect on how the Vietnam War has been processed in our popular consciousness than Michael Herr, best known as the writer of the book Dispatches and contributor to the screenplays of Apocalypse Now and Full Metal Jacket, who died near his home in upstate New York this past Friday. He was 76.

    Francis then began work on his most daring film, "Apocalypse Now". The idea for the film came from an article by Michael Herr about the excess of drugs, violence, and rock music in the culture of US soldiers in Vietnam. Although George Lucas was initially slated to direct the film, Francis took over and decided to film in Cuba. He wrote a glowing letter to Fidel Castro saying "Dear Fidel, I love you.... We have the same initials. We both have beards. We both have power and want to use it for good." Despite this, he decided to film in the Phillipines when the president offered to put his army and air force at the crew's disposal.

    Story

    If you're open for new perspectives on war, this movie is a must see. What is the psychology of war? Do soldiers become murderers when they enjoy killing? Is war beautiful? Are all humans capable of monstrous acts? FIRST KILL explores what war does to the human mind and soul. The film stars several interviews with Michael Herr, the former war correspondent who wrote the screenplays to Apocalypse Now and Full Metal Jacket. Of Equal importance are several in-depth interviews with vietnam veterans that evoke the contradictory feelings that killing produces - fear, hate, seduction and pleasure.

Paint it black. It's funny talking to Herr. That unnerving certainty. That quiet core. I find myself talking about things I really shouldn't. About how I, for what it's worth, still have the nightmares; and about how sometimes when the phone rings, I smash it. 'Hmm,' he says, 'sure gets worse 'fore it gets better.' Have to replace the phone a lot. Smash crockery. Shout at people I shouldn't shout at. Can't sleep. Michael Herr doesn't do that kind of thing any more; he demobilised to some other zone. How?
