Did You Know?
"They've been running Deer Hunter like crazy on Bravo. And here is the whole goddamned Congress singing 'God Bless America' on the steps of the US Capitol. I said, 'Holy shit, this is the ending of the movie.'" (on The Deer Hunter
(1978) in hindsight, post-9/11, London Independent on Sunday, July 2002)
Had Heaven's Gate
(1980) been a hit instead of a flop, he intended to follow it up with another epic which he had already scripted: "Conquering Horse." This screenplay was a generational saga, tracing the history of the Sioux Indians in America. Cimino planned for the entire movie to be told in authentic Sioux dialogue, with English subtitles. To date, this picture has never been filmed.
Striking visual style: Painterly compositions, jittery tracking shots, and wide vista establishing shots that emphasize the earth/nature (Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974), The Deer Hunter (1978), Heaven's Gate (1980), Desperate Hours (1990), The Sunchaser (1996)).
