    One of the most controversial films about the Vietnam War. The film follows the experiences of three men from a Pennsylvania steel town going to fight in Vietnam. De Niro was nominated as a man who learned the dangers of the macho code he lived by, Walken won an Academy Award and Streep earned her first nomination as Walken's betrothed. In addition to Walken's win, the film was named the Best Picture of '78, Cimino the Best Director, while also winning for editing and sound. A truly harrowing & intense war film. I give it a 5/5.

  • A HAUNTING MOVIE

    Anybody who was of age to go to Vietnam or witness from afar, still finds this movie to true and haunts on many levels. The Russian roulette scenes can turn a stomach. But, war is like this. Kudos to Cimino for arranging such a complex movie. I think it's effect is alive today. I hear John Williams version of Cavatina any time since this movie, and the tears roll without end. What a lousy, no purpose war.

    Ths film is stunning & tho. I have not seen it again for a couple of decades, it haunts me. It's indeed rare to be privy to such elemental & immediately tragic human experience. It's about more than war.
