Across the Universe

I confess, I really liked this movie. So much that I saw the beginning of it twice in the theatre in Rīga, and didn’t see the last twenty minutes until I rented it this summer.
But where it becomes relevant, for anyone who hasn’t seen it, is that one of the major subplots (there are a bunch of them) deals with Vietnam. Max, one of the main characters, is drafted and the video I’m posting here is like a dramatized version of what happens when he gets his letter to report. The end of the video is the best- Max is in the office and the guy asks
“Is there any reason you shouldn’t be in this mans’ army, son?” To which Max replies,
“I’m a cross dresser and a homosexual pacifist with a spot on my lung?”
“As long as you don’t have flat feet.”

The movie also has scenes in which the characters participate in anti-Vietnam demonstrations and it continues the plotline in which Max is sent overseas and wounded in Vietnam.
