New movies to stream this week: “Dateline-Saigon”

Narrated by Sam Waterston, the documentary “Dateline-Saigon” is a portrait of five journalists — David Halberstam, Neil Sheehan, Malcolm Browne, Peter Arnett, and photographer Horst Faas — who fought to report on the early days of the Vietnam War differently than the rosy version put forth by the White House. “Despite stodgy trappings,” according to the New York Times, “ ‘Dateline-Saigon’ captures a swirl of personalities and conveys the excitement of reporting in a fast-moving, confusing and dangerous atmosphere.”
