USA | 1978 | 182 Minutes | Michael Cimino

Michael Cimino's meticulous, Academy Award-winning period epic follows three young Pennsylvania factory workers (Robert De Niro, Christopher Walken, and John Savage) who have a difficult time readjusting to life after they spend time in a brutal Vietcong prison camp. Renowned for its tough portrayal of the Vietnam War's effect on the American working class, the film contrasts home and war, from harrowing games of Russian roulette, to tender moments with the woman left behind.
