Did anybody shed a tear at the end? (SPOILERS AHEAD!!)




You know when Nick looked like he was going to go home but then shoots himself in that stupid game.I will admit that i shed a tear or 2 and did anybody else?

The deer Hunter is a great film De Nero is perfect as can be,I find the over all feeling of the picture is one of a depressed state but feel America felt just this way at the end of the Vietnam war., I'm not quite old enough to know, maybe older US members of this site could enlighten us to what the mood of the country was at the period

No not that so much, the film more reflected working class US steel town, far away from the hippy stuff of the big cities and California.

I grew up during that time period watching body counts each night on the 6:00 news.á Grew up thinking I would be sent to Vietnam upon graduation of High School along with by other buddies.
People can say all the want about Richard Nixon and Watergate, but THANK GOD he ended that asinine war.á Like the song said "Watergate does not bother me, does your conscience bother you now tell the truth".á Nixon had ended the blasted thing and there was mass relief of those at my age level.á
The mood of the U.S. was of tension, revolution, depression, hopelessness.á Some of that amalgamation was reflected in cinema.
I don't mean to sound trite, but Sean Mallory voiced it perfectly, "in revolution, there is confusion".á That is exactly what the mood of the country was at that time.

it wasnt who I was thinking of, I thought he meant John Cazale. my bad...

speaking of wich, a bit of trivia from imdb:

His final film, The Deer Hunter (1978), was filmed whilst he was ill with cancer. He met his co-star, Meryl Streep, whilst filming The Deer Hunter (1978) and they became engaged.

Controversy occurred during the filming. While the studio was unaware of his condition, the director, Michael Cimino, knew about it. As Cazale was evidently weak, he was forced to film his scenes first. When the studio discovered he was suffering from bone cancer, they wanted him removed from the film. His co-star and fiancÚ, Meryl Streep, threatened to quit if he was fired. He died shortly after filming was completed.

  I'll always remember John Cazale as Fredo Corleone, the somewhat slow middle son of the Corleone family.

Here's a joke in really bad taste.  Forgive me.

WHat's the opposite of Christopher Reeves?
