Michael Cimino’s epic account of the effects of the Vietnam war on three Pennsylvanian steelworkers, their friends and families begins with an exuberant Russian Orthodox wedding and ends with an altogether more sombre gathering. Between them, the scenes set in Vietnam have an often nightmarish intensity, underlining the raw emotions at the core of the film’s exploration of friendship, loyalty, love and community.
