Apocalypse Now 1979

From Amazon: In the tradition of such obsessively driven directors as Erich von Stroheim and Werner Herzog, Francis Ford Coppola approached the production of Apocalypse Now as if it were his own epic mission into the heart of darkness. On location in the storm-ravaged Philippines, he quite literally went mad as the project threatened to devour him in a vortex of creative despair, but from this insanity came one of the greatest films ever made. It began as a John Milius screenplay, transposing Joseph Conrad's classic story "Heart of Darkness" into the horrors of the Vietnam War, following a battle-weary Captain Willard (Martin Sheen) on a secret...

Apocalypse Now Movie Review by BillyBob (1/19/2012)

APOCALYPSE NOW was probably the first mainstream film to bring matters to light about the US Military deliberately selecting men from racial minorities and underpriviliged families as the ones who would be fighting directly on the front-lines in the Vietnam War.

I think that this eye-opening revelation (even though it was...

Apocalypse Now Movie Review by Movie Addict (2/15/2009)

This film deserved every single award it got, and deserved some that it didn't get. The winners for Best Picture and Best Director and best supporting Actor paled in comparison to this film and Driector Francis Ford Coppola, and Robert Duvall's portrayal as Lt Col Kilgore.

Duvall's performance was just one of some really...

Apocalypse Now Movie Review by Filmkiller (7/8/2008)

Once I decided to attend film school, I knew that I had to start making a conscious effort to watch movies outside my normal sphere, not only because film snobs won't even talk to you if you haven't seen certain 'classics' but because, if they are classics, I assumed that they had something highly valuable to contribute my...

Apocalypse Now Movie Review by Jarrod (1/18/2008)

The production of 'Apocalypse Now' was wrought with so many problems that it almost never made it to the screen, Francis Coppola had a breakdown, Martin Sheen had a heart attack, everything that could do wrong did go wrong, and a documentary about all the troubles on the set was released in 1991, called Hearts of Darkness,...

Apocalypse Now Movie Review by Ezra (2/16/2007)

Apocalypse Now was the first and still, arguably, the best film to take place in the midst of the war itself, shot immediately in the wake of its ending in the late 1970s and released on the brink of the Reagan era in 1979. Inspired by Joseph Conrad's 1899 novella Heart of Darkness, Coppola and screenwriter John Milius...
