Directed by Michael Cimino
The Deer Hunter is Michael Cimino's celebrated interpretation of the stresses and dangers - both physical and emotional - which confront a trio of Pennsylvanian steel-workers when they are sent out to fight in the horror that was the Vietnam War.

Directed by Damien Chazelle
