The Deer Hunter (1978)
Tomorrow, I will be sharing with my wife one of my personal favorite movies – The Deer Hunter. A definite tear jerker, this film is about Russian-American steel workers sent to fight in the Vietnam War.
The Deer Hunter was directed by Michael Cimino (arguably his best film) and has an incredible cast: Robert De Niro, Christopher Walken, Meryl Streep, to name a few. The score was written by Stanley Myers and contained various emotions: suspense, tenderness, and sadness.
Although it is not your usual film to see these days, The Deer Hunter will make you learn about a very difficult period in world history and hopefully will inspire you to watch other great movies from this era.
