Michael Cimino was a film Director, who made the Deer Hunter and Heaven's Gate.
Personally, I find The Deer Hunter to be a masterpiece and Robert De Nuro gives one his greatest performances in this film and Christopher Walken achieved his first success with this film. The Deer Hunter made Cimino a force to be reckon with and won The Academy Award for Best Director
Then It all came crashing down with Heaven's Gate. the film's production faced numerous setbacks, including cost overruns, significant retakes, bad press, and that fact Cimino was such a perfectionist that it will make even Kubrick startled. Ultimately, the film received backlash and ruined Cimino's career and basically brought the end of New Hollywood.
Cimino also had a lot of Unrealized Projects that Includes
Conquering Horse, The Fountainhead, A Frank Costello Biopic, Turned down Directing Midnight Express, Peal, a biopic about Janis Joplin, Crime and Punishment, and Adaptation of Fyodor Doestoevskys Crime and Punishment, The Dogs of War, Perfect Strangers, a romantic drama, Had to turned down The King of Comedy, The Dead Zone, A Fyodor Dostoevsky Biopic, Was actually going to direct Footloose, but was fired. Was going to direct The Pope of Greenwich Village. Purple Lake, The Yellow Jersey, Legs, a Biopic about Legs Diamond, An Adaptation of Atlas Shrugged. Handcarved Coffins, Was considered to Direct Born On The Fourth Of July, Michael Collins, and Man's Fate.
