The Deer Hunter

The Deer Hunter ★★★★

Problematic, but undeniably emotionally effective. Side note: I live near enough to Clairton to have a mailing address that's technically for there, and was born in Glassport (which is slightly more ethnically similar to the depiction in this movie), and am convinced Cimino picked the location semi-arbitrarily, as none of this movie seems to have been filmed there and it doesn't really capture its reality at all.
