The Deer Hunter will always be one of the most fascinating Vietnam war movies. It´s not an easy movie and it is one of those you have to watch again to truly understand it. I wanted to write a review of it many times but was never satisfied with what I came up with. While waiting for the ultimate inspiration I found this video post of an interview with the director of the film, Michael Cimino. I found it quite interesting, especially since the interview is interwoven with bits of the film. Really well done.
Hope you will like it too.
what happened to the rest of the interview. It truly is one of the best with Michael. And I should know…we dated for a year and stayed friends for over 30 years. Where can I locate the entire interview. It is amazing…first time he has been so honest in an interview…please email me…thanks
I am sorry. I had my doubts about posting it as there is something missing but found the beginning very intriguing so I posted it anyway.
This seems to be the whole interview. It is on one of the Deer Hunter DVDs as well.
