Deer Hunter was great. Authentic, and those Russian Roulette scenes in Nam were crazy dramatic and meant a lot. The Christopher Walken character gets hooked, and sees no other life for himself...
Also, had to agree with Sweet Pea on a couple... Heat and The Graduate and American Beauty
is an absolute GREAT flick. That surreal suburban American setting, where everybody is desperate behind those big four bedroom homes, losing their minds behind the facade of normality, and just saw Sam Mendez's new movie, Revolutionary Road, which was along the same lines, even the music was very similar, but though it had some great dramatic moments, it missed.
