War and Cinema

You may have heard of this new movie Act of Valor which features real life Navy SEALS as actors in the movie. The film was made with the support (commissioned by?) of the Navy.

Back in the day when popular magazines like Rolling Stone (the early 70s) or Esquire (the mid-60s) were actually cutting edge in terms of design and content, it was actually conceivable that somebody like Paul Virilio would be hired to cover the film, on set if he was allowed, without any word or page limits to do whatever Virilio might come up with.
