Riveting, wrenching and extraordinarily important, Rory Kennedy’s superb documentary “Last Days in Vietnam” is effectively two films at once. One takes place nearly 40 years ago and tells the incredibly dramatic story of Americans’ frantic, chaotic evacuation of South Vietnam as Communist forces closed in on Saigon. The other film is that same story refracted through our awareness of the potential parallels between yesterday’s debacle and similar U.S. withdrawals from Iraq and Afghanistan today.

Standard talking-head interviews are accompanied by extensive, often stunning archival footage, so deftly assembled by Kennedy and editor Don Kleszy that there’s barely a word spoken that doesn’t have a corresponding memorable image. It’s not a documentary that reinvents the form or will alter anyone’s perception of the war, but sometimes a rich, exhaustive chronicle is more than enough.

Just as the Vietnam War began—in dribs and drabs, unofficially and by proxy—so it seemed to drag on, well past any kind of definitive end. “A masterpiece of ambiguity,” CIA agent Frank Snepp calls the 1973 Paris Peace Accords in the riveting documentary Last Days in Vietnam, in a few words dismissing the high-minded goals of diplomacy with a survivor’s on-the-ground recall. (Henry Kissinger, too, has evasive thoughts to offer in this remarkably thorough account.)
