The Synopsis for Point Man (2019) 720p

Set in Vietnam in April 1968 - three months after the tide-turning Tet Offensive and one month after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. - Point Man is the story of a U.S. Army fire team fractured by racial tensions, moral crises, and the crushing pressures of combat in a war nobody wants to fight. Andre "Casper" Allen, a rough-edged ideologue, finds his radical politics put him at odds with the squad's machine gunner, Silas Meeks. When their search-and-destroy mission in the Mekong Delta goes terribly wrong, both men find themselves pitted against each other and their recalcitrant platoon commander, Lieutenant Sutter. Point men die like flies in the bush, and as loyalties dissolve every step forward comes with a price.

The Reviews for Point Man (2019) 720p

More than what I was expectingReviewed byjaypiphoVote: 10/10

You'll have to see it for yourself to fully appreciate what this film is. I'm a sucker for a war flick, but this isn't that.

This is an independent film that directly confronts some uncomfortable themes that haven't been explored in the genre so far.

If you watch it with an open mind, it's going to open your eyes.

The character development, the beautiful scenery, the gripping storyline. So much more than I was expecting from an indie. Very inspiring and thought provoking.

The only spoiler alert: it will challenge your outlook on things.

A Quality FilmReviewed byla_filmcriticVote: 8/10

Other than the obvious production limitations, this story about Vietnam was very compelling along with exceptional acting from the main cast, if I might add, enhanced what this movie might not have been. These essentials will always capture audiences and should be acknowledged with cheers. Congratulations to all involved.

What Are You Fighting For? A Point Man's Perspective.Reviewed bymatthewrandyewaldVote: 10/10

The beautiful truth of cinema, of storytelling and of performance, is that it is about (at its very essence) escapism.

Film, television, theater & literature, just as art, is subjective. To each person it speaks differently. Different genres, different performances, different actors, studios, fx work -- no matter digital or practical -- everyone will have an opinion on it. And that, right there, is its beauty. We can take from it & escape with it in vastly different ways.

"Point Man," in my humble opinion, is an exceptionally powerful script filled with emotion, drama, intensity & topic that is still relevant today. It isn't a political piece favoring one party over the other, or one ideology over another, this is about morality, human nature & about the darkness within man. It is savagery & question. It is just as much about standing up for those who cannot stand up for themselves, as it is the preconceived notion that somehow one soul is worth a heartbeat more/or less than another.

"Point Man" is dramatic & moving, intense & uncomfortable, dynamic & unrelenting, just as it is intelligent & thought provoking in ways that challenge beliefs. It is history, race & war without preaching, from multiple voices with multiple backgrounds telling a story that matters without losing sight of the entertainment value. And that is because Phil Blattenberger, who wrote & directed this film, treated each frame, take, scene & word as if it were the 10th round in a classic boxing movie's final moment. And everything was riding on it. Only Blattenberger didn't come out like a fighter...he came out like a hurricane, and delivered a knockout.

Truth is though, he couldn't have done it without a group of actors that gave his film its soul. Christopher Long, Jacob Keohane, Chase Gutzmore, Marcus Bailey, Cody Howard, Bryan Bachman & Paul de Havilland (to name a few) play their characters with a verve & spirit that is rare to see from an entire principle cast. Their range of emotion a sight to behold, the duality between them born out of an intensity that was palpable, resulting in times when I honestly didn't know who hero & villain were, because the lines were so blurred & performances were so vastly, deeply & undeniably profound.

Long & Keohane led the charge, equal parts wicked mirth & malice, but where Long was a philosophical titan on a crusade of an honor-bound code, Keohane was an unrelenting time bomb just tick-tick-ticking away in the key of macabre. And they did so to perfection. In any production the spotlight is always on the leads, but here, you won't need a spotlight because you won't be able to take your eyes off of them. Their performances command that type of attention.

Gutzmore & Bailey, along with Howard, made me genuinely care about their characters, their survival & outcome. And to do such a thing to lives born of fiction is a testament to their talent & dedication to craft. Forced into a nightmare situation within an already active fever dream, they delivered a range of emotion that would have been considered daunting if not for the fact they did it so flawlessly...to be able to express such truth upon a screen, that is nothing short of an achievement. They did this, while Howard had the thankless task of being our (much needed) reprieve from the tension & madness gnawing away at every turn. How could we not bust a proverbial gut every time he came into a scene? He played a young soldier so idealistic, so lost in the stories of heroism & valor that he couldn't see how far in over his head he was. He just galloped in with that ignorant smile. He deserves a round of applause because he sold the truth of innocence lost. He was able to tug at our heartstrings while subtly showing how, hidden behind those idealistic eyes, he was breaking.

Bachman came out of left field & owned a portion of movie that is usually reserved for cameo "names" who deliver a performance of magnitude & jet-set. A scene that was what this entire film spoke on: the fine line between the nature of honor & madness. And he did so with this haunted, offputting look in his eyes, as if there were something ancient clawing from out of the deep of his soul like a Lovecraftian nightmare. As if he had seen far too many ghosts & phantom wraiths in the shadows of the jungle. For Bachman to create something so phenomenally honest & real in only a few moments: inspiring. But what is Jekyll without Hyde? Havillan brought his own gleeful madness to a role that just chewed away at those scenes. It wasn't joy, it was sickness found in the ravings of a madman broken by his own acts in the name of war. It is a performance worth watching with rapt attention. I'll say it again, hand to heart, I am in awe of all of them. Very simply, this cast, delivered a gritty, dramatic & philosophical masterclass of performances.

So...no matter within a darkened theater or within the comfort of our own home, no matter where we are, a creative vision is meant to make us feel something. And if you want to constructively hate on something because you legitimately dislike what a story, a performance, a creative vision made you feel, then please, by all means, hate on it. If you love it, love it. If you are impartial, be impartial. You certainly don't need my permission. Express those reasons & feelings. But hopefully you will still be respectful, as well.

You see, it's easy as an actor to cry, to shed that single, glistening tear, just as it is easy to scream like a shotgun blast of concussive power, to open your jaws & howl in chaos & rage. But to pour every ounce of yourself into a performance, to devote yourself to making it real, to give life to character, word, moment & emotion...when an actor does that, they are laying themselves bare for all to see, stripping their armor, that thick skin off their bones & saying give me your constructive hate, give me your love, give me your impartial. Feel something.

But hopefully those who comment will still be respectful. Why? Because at the end of the day, that's all we have left. Respect. Humility. Kindness. Maybe even a little compassion. The nature of a good soul. It's easy to tear something down, truth is it is far too easy...and no one is ever required to build something up. But respect? That is what a creator appreciates. Yet we open ourselves up & cannot fathom how someone could still be cruel to the countless hours of hard work, of passion, love, commitment, unfaltering dedication, hardship, finances, rehearsals & belief when no one else believed in you or those dreams so long ago dreamed...and then we wonder: who could ever be cruel just for the sake of cruelty? Certainly no one here, right? Certainly not just because one has anonymity...right?

As an actor it's easy to cry, to scream, to beat our fists in rage & bring chaos. But to be still, calm & yet say a million words with but a glance, a moment of emotional hesitation, a subtle nuance, now that...that is skill. As a director, to have all eyes looking to you, saying simultaneously: guide me through conflicting emotions, script ideas, lines of dialogue, just as discussing lens choice, set-up, while establishing scene, dealing with shot sequences, wardrobe, continuity, props, film commissions, heat, budget, how many more times a Huey helicopter can fly-by & fear of failure, among countless other issues like cows & heat stroke. But even after all of that -- and far more -- it doesn't stop you. That isn't just skill, that is fighting with every molecule for your dream. A dream that, no matter what, you made a reality.

And you do so, all the while knowing that people will hate on it just because it exists. Can you imagine? Tearing a creative vision down with a few keystrokes simply because one can. And to do so with ease & fall back on whatever personal reason may be. How incredibly simple. It's scary how simple it can be.

Good actors care not for praise nor for recognition, the good actors simply want to act, to help create a story, a world, a performance that can captivate you. A good actor wants to make you feel something. Actor, director, writer, cinematographer & crew -- from pre-production to post -- they want to create something that you could hopefully enjoy. It is a profession, yes, so obviously it would be great to be able to earn in order to help take care of family, pay bills, rent, buy groceries, pay off medical expenses, or surprise your children with "just because gifts" from the toy isle...but a good creative vision is born out of a dream. To create a product of meaning. This film exists because the creator had a story that he wanted to share with whoever would be willing to go on that journey. He had a dream he wanted to make a reality & a star worth chasing. And hopefully an audience would enjoy it. And if not, that they would (at the very least) respect that creation for the act of daring that it was.

The people who created "Point Man" did so because they wanted to be a part of something that they, themselves, deemed special. Hoping that you would follow into this rabbit hole of macabre morality, violence, horror, human condition & war. I should know, because I'm one of them. My name is Matthew Ewald & I had the profound privilege of portraying Lt. Sutter in "Point Man." And I do not say that lightly.

So, give us your constructive hate, love, or impartial, but if it's cruelty...then I hope you can heal, find happiness & achieve your own dreams one day. If & when you do, we (the cast & crew) will applaud your success, because everyone deserves a chance to chase their stars. We did.

And with "Point Man," thanks to it's director & those astounding actors above, an audience can take from its story, escape with it & discuss in vastly different ways. And that is the hallmark of great cinema.
