Deer Hunter is an all time Classic like Apocalypse Now, Goodfellas and Taxi Driver .. I also liked Vanilla Sky too, i dont usually like Cruise but there was a weirdness about it that i liked, liked the original too ..
Howabout Marathon Man and 3 Days of the Condor ?? Classic Paranoia films involving renegade branches of government agencies . I love them films. The Parallax View with ****** Beatty is another great film
