1978 Academy Award for Best Picture. Michael Cimino's film about the impact of the Vietnam War on three friends in a Pennsylvania steel town. Some aspects of the film – particularly the Russian roulette motif – seem implausible, but at its best, the film is a convincing portrayal of a part of America and its history as well as a powerful story about the power of friendship and the horror of war.
Directed by Rakesh Omprakash Mehra. One of the finest films from India, ever. Synopsis: A young woman from England comes to India to make a documentary about her grandfather's diary which was written in the 1920s about the Indian Independence with five young men. As they make the documentary they find parallels in their own lives - and ultimately set off a revolution for generation next. Unforgettable!
