Michael Cimino's Oscar-winning epic The Deer Hunter brought the emotional, homefront legacy of the Vietnam War vividly to life for audiences around the world.

The idea of sacrifice permeates everything, along with the cruelty and horror. This is Cimino's masterpiece.

Heart-on-sleeve stuff that works despite some of its more egregious impulses.

Impressively, Cimino manages to fluctuate involvingly between cynicism and compassion in what feels like a three hour cinematic ache.

Art is long, we Cimino champions go on hopefully asserting. Life and injustice are short.

It's an American tragedy indebted to Russian literature, alive with detail and ritual and embedding viewers in the souls of men, the heart of a community and the spilled guts of a nation.

This multi-Oscar winner from Michael Cimino remains one of the finest and most controversial movies about the Vietnam War.

Robert De Niro is, once again, explosive in this stunning Vietnam movie.

Michael Cimino is better remembered for bankrupting United Artists Studios with "Heaven's Gate" (1980) than he is for making the highly-praised war picture that put him in a position to do such a thing in the first place.

Cimino's daring elegy to a war-torn community may be a long haul, but the extravagant running time is a small price to pay for such gut-wrenching performances and Vilmos Zsigmond's rich cinematography.

Is it as good as its advance word and nine Academy Award nominations suggest? Yes.

The film's depiction of a senseless war remains relevant as long as power-hungry leaders continue to play Russian roulette with the lives of young soldiers.

Held together with a phenomenal cast, The Deer Hunter is a powerful film but also controversial in many ways.

Largely Ambitious, and not without flaws, Cimino's Oscar winning film is nonetheless an effective chronicle of the impact of Vietnam on a clique of close friends

Reel Film Reviews

The friendship between the three central characters, as well as their shared association with the men from their small hometown, is truthful and realistic in a way that most guys will find impossible to resist.

This excruciatingly violent, three-hour Viet Nam saga demolishes the moral and ideological cliches of an era: it shoves the audience into hell and leaves it stranded without a map.

The first half and second half of the film couldn't be more different but that is the genius behind the film.

The film is ambitious and it succeeds on a number of levels and it proves that Cimino is an important director who deserves to be watched carefully.
