Michael Cimino, director of acclaimed films The Deer Hunter and Heaven’s Gate has died aged 77. Thierry Frémaux, director of the Cannes film festival confirmed the news tweeting: “Michael Cimino has died, in peace, surrounded by friends and the two women who loved him. We loved him too” (translated from French).

 

The director helmed eight films in his life, beginning in 1974 with Thunderbolt And Lightfoot, followed by The Deer Hunter in 1978. In 1980, he directed Heaven’s Gate, a critical and commercial flop that coloured the rest of his directing career.

 

His work will never be forgotten.
