The Deer Hunter is a war movie about the effects of the Vietnam War on three Russian-American steelworkers. It was the first major film to tackle the controversial war, and therefore received mixed reception. Overall though, it is considered by many to be one of the best films of all time. It won five out of nine categories for which it was nominated at the Academy Awards.
