美国当地时间7月2日,好莱坞著名导演迈克尔 西米诺(Michael Cimino)逝世,享年77岁。迈克尔 西米诺在上世纪70年代末曾是好莱坞最具知名度的新锐导演,曾以《猎鹿人》横扫奥斯卡最佳影片、最佳导演等五项大奖。但80年代之后事业陷入谷底。不过,迈克尔-西米诺的导演生涯一直持续到了2000年之后。

迈克尔 西米诺1943年生于纽约,1971年在好莱坞崭露头角,1977年的《猎鹿人》让西米诺迅速迈上人生巅峰——横扫奥斯卡最佳影片和最佳导演奖,这也让他一时成为好莱坞最炙手可热的导演之一。不过,巨大的成功也为他带来了更大的“陷阱”。1980年,联美公司投资了他执导的巨片《天国之门》,这部电影的制作成本不断追加,最终票房惨败,联美公司也被迫倒闭。之后的20多年,西米诺拍摄了《龙年》、《致命时刻》等作品,但反响都不及从前的那部《猎鹿人》。2012年,西米诺获得威尼斯电影节终身成就奖。

迈克尔 西米诺虽然作品不多,也遭遇过事业败绩,但他依然被视为好莱坞最具勇气的导演之一。西米诺逝世之后,包括罗伯特-德尼罗在内的诸多影人,都表达了哀悼。

Michael Cimino, Oscar best director winner for his seminal Vietnam War drama "The DeerHunter," has died at the age of 77 in Los Angeles.

His body was found by police Saturday at his home after friends said they were unable toreach him by phone.

According to the Los Angeles County Coroner's website, Cimino died on Thursday at hisresidence, but the office didn't give the reason of death, pending further investigation.

Cimino was born in New York City on Feb. 3, 1939. He directed eight films in his career.

In 1979, Cimino won an Oscar and a Golden Globe best director award for "The DeerHunter," which also won four other Oscars including Best Picture.

The story of the Vietnam War's effect on a small steel-working town in Pennsylvania helpedelevate Robert De Niro and Meryl Steep to superstar status, while Christopher Walken alsowon an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.

The powerful film in 1978 made Cimino one of the most sought-after directors in Hollywood.But his next project "Heaven's Gate" gave a U-turn to his career. The epic Western moralitytale released in 1980 by United Artists was more than three times over its budget.

The film became synonymous with over-budget and out-of-control productions that nearlybankrupted the studio. It flopped and tarnished Cimino's reputation in the process.

Some film makers expressed their appreciation for Cimino after he passed away.

"Our work together is something I will always remember. He will be missed," De Niro said in astatement Saturday.

"I wish I had paid tribute to Michael Cimino while he was alive," tweeted William Friedkin, whodirected the landmark 1970s films "The French Connection" and "The Exorcist." "He was animportant and masterful film maker. We will always have his work."
