Following the disturbing film version of Peter Weiss's Marat/Sade, theatre director Peter Brook and Glenda Jackson reteamed for another all-out assault on the senses with this satirical swipe at the Vietnam War. This time, however, the chaotic structure (it's a mixture of sketches, music and news footage) fails to hold the attention and now seems self-indulgent rather than radical.
Worth a look, though, if only for the eclectic cast which includes novelist Kingsley Amis, Patrick Wymark and Paul Scofield.
