    I recommend Hearts and Minds as a 60s film.

    It's an antiwar documentary about Vietnam and won the academy award for the best documentary of 1974.

    One of the narrators is Randy Floyd, who was a Marine pilot in Vietnam and later joined VVAW. For his testimony at the Vietnam War Crimes Hearings go here:

    Randy and I were arrested along with 38 other protesters for "trespass" at Tinker AFB in the course of an antiwar demonstration on May 4, 1972. We also served prison time for it.

    For the whole story go here:
