Wars on Film: The Deer Hunter

Wars on Film: The Deer Hunter

This absorbing drama about a close-knit group of friends from a Pennsylvania steel town who go to fight in Vietnam unfolds in sections contrasting their experiences before, during and after the war. Arguably one of Michael Cimino's biggest successes, he triumphed in casting Robert De Niro — who then reached out to other rising actors from New York (John Cazale, John Savage, Meryl Streep, and Christopher Walken) — creating a memorable ensemble cast.
