A lot of pretentious drivel once Willard finds Kurtz but, by God, its a sheer delight joining Willard on his mission every time. Coppola's film is loaded with genuinely classic moments and awash with beautiful, unforgettable scenery and images. Possibly the finest War Film of all time, regardless of how silly it gets towards the end. Cracking Soundtrack too.

Apocalypse Now, a 1979 American epic war film set during the Vietnam War, directed and produced by Francis Ford Coppola. The film follows the central character, U.S. Army special operations officer Captain Benjamin L. Willard (Sheen), of MACV-SOG, on a mission to kill the renegade and presumed insane U.S. Army Special Forces Colonel Walter E. Kurtz (Brando). Inspired by Heart of Darkness, a novella by Joseph Conrad.
Apocalypse Now by Brian Wilcox Studios- most people think of the scene with Air Cav coming in to "Flight of the Valkyries" or Duval's famous "I love the smell of napalm in the morning...smells like...Victory!" The scene that always stood out was the chaos at the bridge scene. "Who's in charge here?" "Aren't you, man?"
