The battle-hardened super-soldier is arguably American pop culture’s most enduring archetype, expressing something fundamental about masculinity, exceptionalism and America’s relationship to violence. Special Forces veteran James ‘Bo’ Gritz is the real-life inspiration for many war movies and action flicks. In this extraordinary documentary portrait filmed over 10 years, the loneliness, complexity and tragedy of being a ‘hero’ of American history, frequently mythologised by himself and the media is starkly revealed.
