Apocalypse Now Reviews
Hard to follow and figure out the symbolism behind everything. I'll give it another try someday, but for now this remains in the overrated section of my
War films list
Coppola unleashed full batshit crazy mode on us here for two and half hours and the results leave me shook every single time I watch it.
This movie belongs in the horror section.
This is a collision of sound, image, and obsession. The horror of war and the need to commit to that horror is the theme. After it's over it will echo in your mind... forever and ever.
With spectacular cinematography, great performance, and really intense moments, Apocalypse Now just might be the best Vietnam film ever made.
12-24-2013. Original rating for Redux (Jan. 30, 2010: 4/5).
Magnificent cinematography, fantastic direction and interesting themes make 'Apocalypse Now' a thought-provoking slice of cinema; even if it is ultimately a tad too long.
