Apocalypse Now Reviews

Page 1 of 4
Andrew Johnson
Movie Mezzanine

The word "apocalypse" derives from the Greek for "revelation," so in effect the title of Coppola's masterpiece is a call for us to wake up and stop lying to ourselves about who we are and what we did and what we still have the power to do.

While uneven and arguably messy as a result of its famously troubled shoot, Coppola's mythic odyssey captures the madness, insanity and horror of war in a way that few others have been able to, resulting in a hypnotic, unforgettable experience.

With a famously horrific and documentary inspiring shoot it's almost unfathomable how Francis Ford Coppolla managed to harness the chaotic energy into one of the most potent examinations of war and masculinity to ever grace celluloid.

Perhaps Francis Ford Coppola's greatest directorial achievement, Apocalypse Now is a visually stunning war film that has no equal, with cinematographer Vittorio Storaro capturing the films Philippine location to great effect.

Apocalypse Now is not merely the greatest film to come out of the Vietnam experience but one of the great works about the madness of our times.

Alternately a brilliant and bizarre film, Francis Coppola's four year 'work in progress' offers the definitive validation to the old saw, 'war is hell.'
