This epic look at the Vietnam War and its effects told through the lives of a tight knit group of friends from a Pennsylvania town was Michael Cimino's second film and established him in the pantheon of American directors. Complex and emotionally raw performances from Robert De Niro and Meryl Streep earned each an Academy Award nomination, and Christopher Walken's portrayal of Nick, who survives capture but is unable to escape its trauma, is a tour de force that earned him the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor. With a keen eye for nuance and a carefully structured script, Cimino interweaves the rituals great and small that make up the lives of his characters, creating a poignant sense of what remained constant and what was forever changed by their experience of the war.


Maybe not much point saying this -for fans- but this is only the plain version. The 2 discer is £6.99…603 Or less than £4 on eBay.

The extras are very worthwhile on this occasion.

And there's a dirt cheap (bare bones) HDDVD or Blu-ray with very similar extras as the 2 DVD. Again fans will probably know this!

This film is a classic, one of my favourite films to date. Great story, wonderful music, good times, bad times..
