Hitchhiking Vietnam
press reactions
THE GOOD STUFF

"A breathtakingly sensitive personal statement."
The Boston Globe

"A fetching first person account of an exotic culture."

TV Guide

THE BAD STUFF

"Her camera technique is homespun, her script sometimes trite."
TV Guide

THE BACKHANDED COMPLIMENT

"A slicker filmmaker may not have revealed so much about this embattled country."
TV Guide

THE MYSTIFYING OBSERVATION

"...little blond woman..."
The Clinton Item

MORTIFYING PUBLICITY

"Muller sits on rocks at a river shaving her legs..."
Washington Post

PERISH THE THOUGHT

"Giving up daily, if not weekly or monthly bathing.."
The Clinton Item

THE CONSENSUS

"Why did 32-year-old Karin Muller spend seven months hitchhiking through Southeast Asia? So we wouldn't have to."
TV Guide

"Would I want to travel that way, risking my life and limb (a bus she misses early on becomes a death trap for twenty three passengers) and stomach (much of the rural diet seems to consist of creepy crawlies)? No way. But I'm very glad Ms. Muller did it for me - and you."

Wall Street Journal

 

CORRECTION
Some readers may have gotten the impression that David Fanning was the editor for Hitchhiking Vietnam. In fact Harlan Reiniger was the editor/co-producer and David Fanning was the executive producer for the documentary.
