#521. In the Year of the Pig (1968)
Why It's In The Book: "Argued through indirect means, Emile de Antonio’s In the Year of the Pig mounts an impressive attack on American foreign policy and the war in Vietnam. One result is an extraordinarily provocative documentary. Another is a textbook example of flaws within the American sensibility that are most easily identified as simple arrogance…
Zeroing in on found footage or else relying on carefully edited interviews, the film manipulates talking heads into its argument without overtly stating its point. In this way, de Antonio and his production staff remain carefully off-screen even though their imprint is everywhere present… one of the more successful antiwar, if at moments anti-American, diatribes on the evils of political expediency." -1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die
Marie_Dressler - 8/10
"Although I generally hate to feel manipulated, I have to admit that the film is brilliantly effective in what it sets out to do."
Kim Wilson - 8/10
"Taken as a whole, I find In The Year of the Pig to be one of the most well-done and educational documentaries ever made about the Vietnam conflict."
Klaus Ming - 8/10
"a fascinating politically driven anti-war documentary"
Nicolas Krizan - 8/10
"the bewildering confusion, appalling lack of knowledge and pure cynical arrogance of the Vietnam escalation"
Siochembio - 7.5/10
"There is an immediacy to In the Year of the Pig that other films about the Vietnam War, even the narrative films, lack. Outcome was uncertain. Everything was uncertain."
Lindsey - 7/10
"This documentary is informative and well put together. It seems that the fact our government lies to us is hardly new."
Movie Guy Steve - 7/10
"The film’s dedicated focus is, in the world of today, just too simple a position to take."
Adolytsi - 6/10
"You can't watch this like a regular documentary and expect to be presented the information in a regular fashion; this is far too convoluted, a jumbled mess of wires of a documentary, for someone to pop it in and watch it willy-nilly."
Squish - 6/10
"less about soldiers and more about suits... you may find yourself drowning in talking heads... if you were looking for something that focussed more on the human side, you should avoid the extremely pollitically oriented In The Year of the Pig."
