I don't see "Bullet in the Head" as being much like "The Deer Hunter," other than it being set in Nam. It's also a lot more intense than
"Hunter," and is a better film in general.

By the way, we keep talking about Woo's hardboiled movies, but somehow nobody's mentioned -- "Hardboiled." I think this one wins the S&W filmmaker's award for the most bullets fired in public.
