The Deer Hunter * * *

I hadn't watched a movie without special effects for a long time. The Deer Hunter is very weird. Although it starts off really slowly, it get very interesting as it progresses and you see how the lives of the people change after they went to Vietnam. It won best picture oscar in 1978, I think more because of the theme rather than the actual quality as a movie (which is very high level already). And the cast is best of the best: De Niro, Walken, Meryl Streep.
