The Deer Hunter Controversial. Disturbing. Brilliant. Great cast superb acting. Great lie, however portrayal of Russian roulette still manic after all these years.
1953 adaptation of the H.G.Wells classic novel transposed into small town Cold War USA. Been years since I have seen this, it won an oscar for Best Visual Effects. Interesting period piece holds up well along with some other classic 1950 Sci Fi films.

A lot more subtle in its dynamics than The Last Temptation. The cast is first rate with some dynamic performances. Highly recommend.
