    I had hard time watching this great movie as I knew Richard from the streets and I began to question so many thing that I was seeing in this film. From the start to the end the movie brings you in the life of a this "little man" that was mysterious but yet so interesting. I thought the Director was able to grasp the element of mystery and allure of the man that so many had questions for so many years. Worth the watch and even the sad ending even made me proud of the man and what he did for this country.

    The story of a tiny man who somehow got in the army although he didn't make the height cut. Went to Vietnam and was a war hero. He was involved with the CIA, Revolutionaries, became homeless and that is only a small part of this complex and incredible man's story. A must see, you can't make this stuff up!

    A must see touching and true story of a forgotten decorated hero from Vietnam. How many secrets did he take to the grave? We will never know.

    From my perspective, the filming was well done. I'll be honest and say I didn't expect the quality of the documentary to be a good as it was. David did a great job on presenting the facts in a way that kept me interested in the whole story line. For me, what was interesting (which I thought he should have led with, the "hook") wasn't until 70% through the movie.

    Great job David.
