1978 Academy Award for Best Picture. Michael Cimino's film about the impact of the Vietnam War on three friends in a Pennsylvania steel town. Some aspects of the film – particularly the Russian roulette motif – seem implausible, but at its best, the film is a convincing portrayal of a part of America and its history as well as a powerful story about the power of friendship and the horror of war.
