The Deer Hunter has been criticized for being jingoistic by the critic Jonathan Rosenbaum.
Waving its snout in your face, it asks you to suspend whatever precious intelligence that you have in exchange for a good cry about what nasty old Vietnam has done to poor beleaguered America.

If you view the final scene as ironic or an example of flag-waving, you can interpret the film as being anti-war or staunchly pro-war.

While most war films are "anti-war," they are always anti-war from the point of view of the winning side. They say, "War is hell, and we won." Shouldn't anti-war films be told from the point of view of the losers? War was hell, and they lost. - Roger Ebert

My favorite anti-war films and watch-list.

Apocalypse Now, The Deer Hunter, Full Metal Jacket, and The Fog of War aren't clearly anti-war or pro-war.

Please recommend any great antiwar or pacifist films.
★★★
Duck Soup
Peace on Earth
I'm not interested in seeing these movies:
Three Kings
A Farewell to Arms
