APOCALYPSE NOW: THE FINAL CUT

"This isn't a film about Vietnam. This film is Vietnam," said director Francis Ford Coppola of his epic 1979 war drama, now considered one of the greatest and most influential films ever made. Battle-weary Army Captain Benjamin Willard (Martin Sheen) accepts a mission to travel by river from south Vietnam into Cambodia to "terminate with extreme prejudice" the command of Colonel Walter Kurtz (Marlon Brando), an AWOL Special Forces officer who has apparently gone insane. The U.S. Army's helicopter attack on a Vietnamese village, set to Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries," is perhaps cinema's most famous interpolation of classical music. The supporting cast includes Robert Duvall, Frederic Forrest, Albert Hall, Sam Bottoms, Laurence Fishburne and Dennis Hopper. The film received eight Oscar® nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director for Coppola, with wins for Vittorio Storaro's cinematography and Walter Murch's sound. Winner, Palme d'Or, 1979 Cannes Film Festival. DIR/SCR/PROD Francis Ford Coppola; SCR John Milius. U.S., 1979/2019, color, 183 min. RATED R
