Andrea Luka Zimmerman’s tale of Vietnam war veteran ‘Bo’ Gritz gives a preposterous true story an alarming, haunting edge
The decorated former US special forces officer James “Bo” Gritz, now 79, is a certain kind of lairy, gung-ho publicity addict – like Oliver North or G Gordon Liddy. Documentary-maker Andrea Luka Zimmerman gives a pretty alarming account of his life, and leaves it to us to notice his relation to the present White House incumbent. Her film is a bit shapeless and unsignposted, sometimes more like a rough cut than a finished movie, a patchwork of original interview material and archive footage. But it’s a good story.
