The Deer Hunter: Blu-ray +DVD Universal 100th Anniversary Edition

The winner of five Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director, this powerful 1978 drama featured an all-star cast headed by Robert De Niro, Meryl Streep and Christopher Walken, a gripping story of love and loyalty framed inside a sprawling tale of the Vietnam War, and a couple of the most unsettling Russian roulette scenes ever filmed. Given a new re-release shine in commemoration of Universal Studios’ centennial celebration, it arrives in this Blu-ray edition with commentary track from its iconic cinematographer, Vilmos Zsigmond, and film historian Bob Fisher, plus a documentary on 100 years of Universal’s Oscar winners.
