The Deer Hunter
This masterpiece of a film, starring Robert De Niro, Meryl Streep and Christopher Walken, measures the devastating impact of the war in Vietnam on the lives of three American soldiers from a small, industrial town in Pennsylvania. In ferociously intense, chillingly brutal scenes, director Michael Cimino enables us to fully understand why this particular war not only destroyed the hopes and dreams of America’s young men, but why it left so many of them permanently shattered and alienated from society. Winner of five Academy Awards in 1978 including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Supporting Actor.
