"KERRY'S APOCALYPSE NOW! Butler can be a powerful storyteller. What stares you in the face is the anquish and grief of men who put their lives in the line of fire for a government that undertook a pointless war, mismanaged it, kept it going out of hubris and then abandoned it. Watch this and try not to weep."
THE NEW YORK TIMES
"ANYONE WHO SEES GOING UPRIVER will find it hard to argue that what happened close to 35 years ago no longer matters in America today."
"IT'S A MOVIE MUCH LIKE ITS SUBJECT: passionate but deliberate, avoiding sensation but DETERMINED TO TELL THE FULL, TRUE STORY."
More acclaim ...
