al­though al­most 40 years old, di­rec­tor Michael Cimino’s Viet­nam War clas­sic still holds up. Robert De Niro, Christo­pher Walken and John Savage are steel­work­ers full of bravado who leave loved ones (in­clud­ing Meryl Streep) be­hind af­ter be­ing drafted, only to wit­ness what war ac­tu­ally en­tails. Packed with iconic mo­ments – such as the in­fa­mous Rus­sian roulette scene – it’s an act­ing mas­ter­class, es­pe­cially from De Niro.
