    The documentary that proved once and for all that "shell shock" does exist, and was suppressed by the US government for 30 years because of it. Fascinating and extremely moving. Highlights include the hypnosis sequence, when a man relives the event that caused his amnesia, and a soldier who, upon losing his stutter for the first time in months, tearfully cries "I can talk!" over and over. This documentary is just as relevant today as it was 65 years ago. 8 years ago
