Metacritic

100

It is not an anti-war film. It is not a pro-war film. It is one of the most emotionally shattering films ever made.

What distinguishes The Deer Hunter most is its many rich characters and the size of its vision. This is a big film, dealing with big issues, made on a grand scale. Much of it, including some casting decisions, suggest inspiration by The Godfather. [9 Mar 1979]
