So I'm watching the Deer Hunter just now. Its a movie I've seen loads of times but it always pisses me off because it seems badly chopped up into bits. I've considered that it might have some kind of deeper context but I don't know what it is beyond maybe the horrors of war after its over or how soldiers are all affected in different ways maybe. Starts with a wedding, some banter, some scenes of deer hunting and then suddenly Robert Deniro is burning NVA soldiers all by himself and the other two guys turn up but they're just line infantry and then...I don't know, it just skips right to the whole prisoners playing Russian roulette part. Its brutal but the jump is so random. Then I dont know, they go home but Christopher Walken doesnt and hes playing Russian roulette as a professional now or something and doesnt even recognise Deniro. I just dont ever quite understand what the **** is happening in it but its considered to be a fantastic movie and critically acclaimed.
