Blow up all hope with one sixth chance.

One hit.

——Inscription

When Mike took a gun to his head, looked at Nick and said I love u firmly in his eyes, it was not him who fell, but Nick who sat opposite. He just remembered the front line of hunting together and muttered “hit with one shot”.

The blood burst out in an instant like the violence in the film. Mike rushed up and hurriedly tried to stop the red liquid pouring out of Nick’s temple. Of course, I believe he knows as well as we do that this man can’t be saved again. The director cleverly did not use any vocal music here. In this way, although the scene is sensational, it is not abrupt and artificial. Everything is just right. People’s hearts can often get the most real release at this moment.

The film begins with a grand wedding – lively and good-looking. In addition to the bride, Linda is one of a large group of bridesmaids in pink gauze skirts. At that time, a fool could see how gentle Mike looked at her. Unfortunately, it was the fiancee of his best friend Nick. At that wedding, Linda agreed to Nick’s proposal, but everything was full of unknowns. The men were going to the battlefield. Who knows who can come back alive. To tell you the truth, I really don’t like Streep’s appearance and don’t think she has great acting skills. But since we chose her as Linda, let’s put up with it and go on.

The scene of deer hunting only appears twice, but like Russian roulette, it has echo and metaphor. It is not only the center of the film, but also the climax. When the first Mike saw the deer in the jungle, he could shoot without hesitation. His shooting method was accurate and his expression was decisive, which made people look sideways; But since his return from the battlefield, he picked up his gun several times and still chose to give up. This is the beauty of the director. There are few scenes describing the cruelty of the war, but a lot of space is reserved for different reactions to the same thing one after another. Fortunately, he returned from the battlefield alive and unharmed. He had a strong sense of approval for the word “survival”. At that time, Mike had experienced the difficulty and value of life, which was actually the same for people and animals. This act of releasing lies in the respect for all life. Although he did not leave any comments, he secretly had an attitude towards the war.

Russian Roulette is the most tragic part of the whole film. It is the treatment of this fictional plot that sets off the devastation of war on people in all aspects from another side. The first bet appeared after three friends were captured. Steven’s confusion directly caused the fear of his friends. This fear of death also reflects the noise of the previous three people at the wedding and their confusion about the future, which is one of the projections of war on people, spirit and soul.

Mike is obviously the backbone of the three. Steven relies on him, and Nick trusts him wholeheartedly and unconditionally. This intimate feeling between each other is the focus of rendering in [deer hunter], but it is very real and smooth in the director’s lens, without adding a little more deliberate. However, the active Steven can only spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair, and Nick has completely lost himself and become a complete plaything and victim.

On the surface, Mike’s ending is the most optimistic, but it’s not. The trauma of war is much deeper and heavier than the impression cast on Mike’s face. It’s just that Mike, who is introverted by nature, won’t over express it. Two details are quite interesting: first, when Mike came home, he specially asked the driver to drive to the hotel and deliberately avoided his friends who were celebrating for him. The light at night hit his face. Although he couldn’t see his expression clearly, it was not difficult to imagine the loneliness and bitterness. Only those who have experienced the battlefield can realize this; Second, Linda tried to keep him and said, can’t we comfort each other? Mike’s secret love for Linda is a well-known thing. Of course, it also includes Linda himself. What’s interesting here is that Linda directly said the request of “we can go to bed”, but the latter sentence was “comfort each other”, which is a very practical and undisguised intention – the emptiness of people’s heart is undoubtedly revealed here. But Mike refused. Rather than refusing out of his responsibility to Nick, the baptism of war made his whole life disordered, so that at that moment he couldn’t see exactly what he needed.

In the last part, when Mike saw Nick again, the latter had already lost his high spirited and handsome appearance. The empty eyes, dull body movements and mechanical expressions can be described as masterpieces left by the war. He doesn’t remember Mike, but he still sends money to the disabled Steven who is far away. The walking corpse like body just woke up in Mike’s call and left again. But no one can deny that death is a shocking outbreak here, but it is the best ending for Nick. From then on, he will not bring any haze, and there is no need to leave scars for all kinds of torture. On the contrary, Mike, who never shares his heart with others, is destined to live a painful life on his back for a lifetime. This is not a problem that love or other feelings can solve for him.

Although the ending part was handled very calmly by the director, with a very clear sad but not sad atmosphere, the obvious great American humanism made me uncomfortable. The Vietnam War is a nightmare for the people of both countries, but the biggest victim is Vietnam after all. But [the deer hunter] is obviously too willing to deal with the ferocious and savage side of the Vietnamese. In this regard, the gap between simino and Kubrick and Oliver Stone is obvious.

Besides, as an aside, the music of this film is very good. I believe all those who watched this film will have the idea of “Oh, that’s it” at the moment of hearing it.
