About the Movie
Private McKinley Nolan vanished forty years ago in Vietnam on the Cambodian frontier. Some say he was captured, some say he was a traitor, some even say he was an American operative. The U.S. Army officially claims he was radicalized and "went native," joined the Viet Cong and was later murdered by the Khmer Rouge. In 2006, retired U.S. Army Lt. Dan Smith, revisiting the battlefields of his youth, may have encountered McKinley, alive. So begins a journey into the heart of darkness.
One of the Best Anti-War films of our Generation!!!
"Because the film is short and because it is awash in powerful moments of visual lyricism, it plays out less like a documentary than a prose poem to seeking and not finding...
The truest of the truths offered up here — the thing that works its way up under your sternum, between heart and gut — is the yearning we feel when a loved one is lost and not found, and the way hope can twist, over decades, into the kind of grief that defines a lifetime. " - Luke Baumgarten (Pacific Northwest Inlander)
The Disappearance of McKinley Nolan
Intimate and beautifully shot, The Disappearance of McKinley Nolan takes us on a fugue-like counterpoint between Texas and Cambodia, Vietnam and D.C., families and bureaucrats, the grieving and the guilty, loss and acceptance. I was stunned, haunted, and profoundly moved. This is one of the best anti-war movies ever made.
A must see
Great, soulful documentary. It shares an important story with a poetic tone and beautiful imagery. A must see.
