The Deer Hunter (1978)

The Deer Hunter (48:49) Rated R for a handful of F-bombs (and for Russian Roulette)

Deer Hunter

We sic T100P podcast #99 on you a week before America’s Armed Forces Day. That’s appropriate, even if there’s much debate whether or not this movie is patriotic. It certainly covers all kinds of PTSD and the unending pain of war. In ego-driven director Michael Cimino‘s hands, Robert De Niro and the entire cast is sensational. Order up some Sparkplug Coffee and get into a memorable episode.
