This is certainly true for what Americans call the “Vietnam War” and what the victorious Vietnamese call the “American War.” Both terms obscure how a war that killed more than 58,000 Americans and three million Vietnamese was also fought in Laos and Cambodia, killing hundreds of thousands more and leading directly to the Cambodian genocide. Viet Thanh Nguyen live tweets Da 5 Bloods: "As always, it's a demand that you can't decolonize and de-imperialize if you keep reiterating the imperial country's point of view, even from the minority perspective.

Spike Lee窶冱 new movie Da 5 Bloods (June 12, Netflix) follows four African-American Vietnam veterans as they return to present-day Vietnam in search of their fallen squad leader and the promise of a buried treasure. But so do the Vietnamese, Laotians, Cambodians and Hmong. Making a “Vietnam War” movie in this classic mold, except with Black men, Lee cannot overcome the imperialism that is as American as slavery and genocide.

Being a victim, over and over again, besides being traumatic in real life, is really boring onscreen, and Lee understands that basing a Black story on such an experience is a losing proposition.

Why? His strategy in “Da 5 Bloods” echoes Francis Ford Coppola’s in “Apocalypse Now,” which he references often — reserve the starring role for American men who struggle with their own heart of darkness. “Da 5 Bloods” remains a “Vietnam War” movie about fighting an American dirty war again, except that it puts Black men in the spotlight and it eliminates the worst of the anti-Asian, Yellow Peril racism that characterizes the genre. 窶廬窶冦 glad the movie focuses on Black experiences, and on Black returning soldiers,窶� Nguyen tweeted while viewing the film on June 16th. Hence the marginalized Vietnamese continuing to serve their role as excuses for a Black drama staged against America’s Black-white divide.

See more of Viet Thanh Nguyen on Facebook University of Southern California “Da 5 Bloods” clearly aspires to be a movie that jabs at American racism and imperialist warmongering, but whereas it succeeds at the former, it fails at the latter. For Americans, Hollywood turns a defeat by Vietnamese people into a conflict that is actually a civil war in the American soul, where Americans’ greatest enemies are actually themselves. Department of English But we don’t get to call Black people a racial slur, and they don’t get to call us one either. If one can’t disentangle Black subjectivity from dominant American (white) subjectivity, it’s impossible to apply a genuine anti-imperialist critique. In this context, 窶廛a 5 Bloods窶� rightfully deserves its moment as it recounts, in unique Spike Lee fashion, the experiences of some of the Black soldiers who fought in disproportionate numbers during a war whose racism cut both ways, against Black (and Brown and Indigenous) American soldiers and also against the Vietnamese (and Cambodians, Laotians and Hmong).

In its own typically solipsistic, American-centered, whitewashed fashion, Hollywood has been waging this war on celluloid ever since John Wayne’s atrocious “Green Berets” in 1968, a film so nakedly propagandistic it could have been made by the Third Reich. The fact that most Americans know “I Have a Dream” but not “Beyond Vietnam” is testimony to the depth of American propaganda, the willingness of Americans to want to feel good about the American Dream and their reluctance to confront the American Nightmare. All wars are fought twice, the first time on the battlefield, the second time in memory. In order to post comments, please make sure JavaScript and Cookies are enabled, and reload the page.

While acknowledging the massacre of 500 Vietnamese civilians is important, it is also a clumsy exercise in American guilt that relegates the Vietnamese to victimhood, which is how Americans prefer to remember them, except when they remember them as Viet Cong. As a result, the Vietnamese appear as the tour guide, the sidekick, the “whore,” the mixed-race child, the beggar and the faceless enemy, all of whom play to American desires and fears.

The Americans and the French, our former colonizers, are seen as walking wallets, not to be offended. 窶�Da 5 Bloods窶� co thê la mô t thニー nghiê m tha nh công cu a Spike Lee vニ。 i do ng phim chiê n tranh lâ y trung tâm la ngニーニ。 i li nh da ma u, nhニーng vニ。 i kha n gia Viê t Nam, phim ト�ê la i nhニー ng ha t sa n kho ト柁。 . As King said, Black Americans were sent to “guarantee liberties in Southeast Asia which they had not found in southwest Georgia and East Harlem.” He condemned not just racism, but also capitalism, militarism, American imperialism, and the American war machine, “the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today.” In another speech, he demanded that we question our “whole society,” which means “ultimately coming to see that the problem of racism, the problem of economic exploitation, and the problem of war are all tied together.”, “Vietnam,” meaning the “Vietnam War,” continues to haunt this country, which was built on war and for war. We have no time to hate Americans because we hate each other more, given that our war was actually a civil war (plus, the Vietnamese really hate the Chinese the most).

King knew that the only way to save a racially divided America from itself was to have white Americans listen to Black people, and he knew the only way to save an imperial America from itself was to have Americans listen to those it normally prefers to kill and silence through massive firepower, whether ordered by the Pentagon or Hollywood. “Da 5 Bloods” shows Black men as agents of their own destiny, capable of both heroism and horror, as we all are as human beings whose inhumanity is an inextricable part of ourselves.

Writer Viet Thanh Nguyen On What Spike Lee窶冱 窶魯a 5 Bloods窶� Gets Wrong Posted on July 1, 2020 Leave a comment 竊� Viet Thanh Nguyen joins Boston Public Radio on air to talk about the portrayal of Vietnamese people in Spike Lee窶冱 窶魯a 5 Bloods.窶� In June, film director Spike Lee released his latest project, 窶廛a 5 Bloods.窶� The situation escalates rapidly and the vengeful native screams at the Black veterans that they killed his mother and father. USC PAM Event: Southeast Asian Refugee Narratives, December 9, 2020 Da 5 Bloods is a 2020 American war drama film directed, produced, and co-written by Spike Lee.It stars Delroy Lindo, Jonathan Majors, Clarke Peters, Johnny Trí Nguy盻�n, Norm Lewis, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Mélanie Thierry, Paul Walter Hauser, Jasper Pääkkönen, Jean Reno, and Chadwick Boseman.. “The master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house,” Audre Lorde once wrote, and indeed, a war story that repeats a purely American point of view will just help ensure that American wars continue, only with more diverse American soldiers and ever-newer targets to be killed or saved.

But the true urgency here is not only for self-representation and the need to recognize ourselves so that others will recognize us, too. I give Da 5 Bloods a lot of credit of giving perspective to the black soldiers and how they feel disenfranchised by their own country. In this context, “Da 5 Bloods” rightfully deserves its moment as it recounts, in unique Spike Lee fashion, the experiences of some of the Black soldiers who fought in disproportionate numbers during a war whose racism cut both ways, against Black (and Brown and Indigenous) American soldiers and also against the Vietnamese (and Cambodians, Laotians and Hmong). I can't recommend it. The reason for this troubling treatment is simple: for Hollywood, and for Americans, it is better to be the villain or antihero rather than virtuous extra, so long as one occupies center stage. Not to make them into angels, but instead to render them with the same kind of fully, three-dimensional capacity for good and terrible deeds.”. Nguyen said representation in Hollywood holds a unique power, because of the way that American movies and TV influence attitudes both in the U.S. and around the world.

"I think there’s a stereotype that Hollywood is a liberal enclave, which might be true in terms of people’s personal politics, but I don’t think it’s true in terms of what Hollywood puts on the screen,” he said. A big congratulations to Viet Thanh Nguyen, who is joining the Pulitzer Prize Board as its first Asian-American and Vietnamese-American member.

So, when Spike Lee’s new movie “Da 5 Bloods” was announced, my feelings were mixed. He overlooks the more radical possibility that King outlined in “Beyond Vietnam” when he called on Americans to listen to the “voiceless ones.” King meant the Vietnamese, but the “voiceless ones” are anyone the United States confronts with its massive, multicultural war machine, including, now, Iraqis and Afghans.

Here we go with my live tweeting of Spike Lee's #Da5Bloods. Viet Thanh Nguyen on BPR | July 1, 2020 In June, film director Spike Lee released his latest project, 窶廛a 5 Bloods.窶� Would it even be a war story? On the one hand, I am an admirer of many of Lee’s movies. “Here is the true meaning and value of compassion and nonviolence,” King said, “when it helps us to see the enemy’s point of view, to hear his questions, to know his assessment of ourselves.”. The film starts with the classic anti-racist, anti-imperialist quote from Muhammad Ali about the Viet Cong: “They never called me nigger.” It’s sad, then, that Paul’s response to the chicken seller is to call the Vietnamese “Gooks.” Yes, Black soldiers used this slur, and the slur says a great deal about Paul’s traumatized internalization of racism. Here we go with my live tweeting of Spike Lee's #Da5Bloods." For Vietnamese people, as well as Laotians, Cambodians and Hmong, their role is almost always that of the extra, their function: to be helpful, rescued, blamed, analyzed, mocked, abused, raped, killed, spoken for, spoken over, misunderstood or all of the above.

In one of the stranger twists in self-aggrandizement, Hollywood renders Americans as the antiheroes, which might seem odd given that Hollywood is America’s unofficial ministry of propaganda. “Da 5 Bloods” is a lesser Lee movie — honestly, it’s a mess — whose characterizations of Vietnamese people are inextricable from its political failures. The release of Spike Lee窶冱 new film is the latest reminder of why America can never escape the memories and lessons of the Vietnam War era. In putting Black subjectivity at the center, Lee also continues to put American subjectivity at the center.

In a particularly absurd moment, a Vietnamese gangster threatens the Black veterans as he recounts the My Lai massacre. Don't believe me, read "And one of the most basic of those is that the Vietnamese people, or any other Southeast Asian person in these movies, are serving [as] sidekicks, or extras, or just props for the American drama,” he said. Black soldiers finally get their own story, but in one important respect, the film is no different from other Hollywood dramas that came before. Nguyen detailed his thoughts in a June piece, published in The New York Times, titled "Vietnamese Lives, American Imperialist Views, Even in ‘Da 5 Bloods.’”, "I think what's basically missing is the perception of the Vietnamese people as humanity, pure and simple,” he said. What remains, however, is evidence that while Lee means well, he also does not know what to do with the Vietnamese except resort to guilty liberal feelings about them. by Viet Thanh Nguyen (live review via Facebook posts and tweets)I Black people can call themselves whatever they wish; that is their right. We’re talking about a type of genre that helps Americans see the world in a particular way: centered around the U.S., centered around American experiences, ignoring how American foreign policy effects others," he said, adding "and I think this does effect American attitudes towards what we do politically and militarily overseas.

I stand with Black Lives Matter and against anti-Black racism, but still, as I watched the obligatory scene of Vietnamese soldiers getting shot and killed for the thousandth time, and as I felt the same hurt I did in watching “Platoon” and “Rambo” and “Full Metal Jacket,” I thought: does it make any difference if politically conscious Black men kill us?
