Michael Cimino United States, 1978

bernardovazdecastro's rating of the film The Deer Hunter

I saw this film years ago after discovering the magnificent Heaven’s Gate. I rewatch today and despite the fact that I still think this is one of the biggest masters pieces of the american cinema, I hardly recall a film that blanks the real history so well. Like Griffith did in Birth of Nation, Cimino did where. The ending where everyone sings the anthem is revolting.
