The Deer Hunter
A group of working-class friends decide to enlist in the Army during the Vietnam War and finds it to be hellish chaos -- not the noble venture they imagined. Before they left, Steven married his pregnant girlfriend -- and Michael and Nick were in love with the same woman. But all three are different men upon their return.

"Intensely haunting and memorable. One of the greatest war films ever made, with an unflinching look at the psychological toll of war on people. I was particularly impressed by the way the camera and scenes linger for a while for the viewer to register the scene’s impact. Stellar performances across the board (especially Robert DeNiro and Christopher Walken). Well deserved Oscar wins, especially the Directing win for Michael Cimino."
"What a riveting war movie. In my opinion, this is the best "Vietnam War" movie ever. I love how the film doesn't focus solely on the violence during the war but the aftermath of the war itself. It displays how war can change any man through some of the main character arcs in the movie, and the film really does well when letting that story unfold. The cinematography in this film is also amazing with its beautiful wide landscaping shots. I also really enjoy the acting in this movie, I see why this film swept the Oscars at the time of the release. This movie has a bit of a slow pace and a really lengthy run time but by the end, you'll realize that the run time is worth it. "
