Note: This scene has strong "Rated R" language.

This is a scene I directed for my DC 462 graduate class at DePaul. The idea was to chose a scene from a film that we hadn't seen before. My film was The Deer Hunter.

Nick, Merle, and Sal are stuck in a Vietnamese prison camp. Originally this scene takes place in a bamboo cage, but I adapted it to more of a prison setting. All three men have been forced to play russian roulette while the V.C. bet on the outcome. Faced with certain death if they do nothing, they start to talk about escape...
