Interesting list. A few of NR’s picks seem a bit odd, though.
I was only 12 when I saw Deer Hunter, so I may have missed a lot, but it didn’t strike me as a conservative film. Carnal Knowledge I only know by reputation, but I wouldn’t have thought of it as a conservative standard bearer, either. Maybe I need to add a couple of rentals to my Netflix queue in the near future, eh?
One I’d add to the NR list, even though it was done by and starred a die-hard liberal actor: Jeremiah Johnson. Living free and on one’s own terms to me goes to the very essence of conservatism.
Husband works to fall in love with his wife again, rather than divorce her (among other great values).
I’ve tried to watch Deer Hunter about 5 ties and can never get through it. Always seemed a bit slow and I lost interest
