Rolling Stone has written:
BASIC CLASSICS: There are a lot of important films on the Filmoteca screen this mounth but we could see a beautiful film called The Deer Hunter [El Cazador] in Círculo de Bellas Artes, another interesting and chip screen. This is a good representative sample of the excelent Hollywood filmography on seventies, another golden age where American cinema had been influenced by European masters (Fellini, Godard, Truffaut, Buñuel, Pasolini…) getting a suberb decade plains of masterpieces by Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, William Friedkin, Robert Altman, Francis Ford Coppola… This film is an intense travel around the Vietnam’s nightmare, with a good cast where we could see one of the best perfomances of Robert de Niro and Christopher Walken (and a very young Meryl Streep!). It is long but is good.
