The Deer Hunter
film / 11.05pm / ITV4
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.
