The horror…the horror…

Not only is this arguably the greatest war movie ever made, it is also one of my all time favourites; a visceral, blistering tour-de-force of powerhouse filmmaking and bravura acting, topped by some of the most stunning cinematography captured on film. This weekend sees the re-release of Francis Ford Coppola’s masterpiece Apocalypse Now, cleaned up and back on the big screen, and I urge anyone to go out and see it, even if you already own it. The Helicopter beach attack, cued to “Rise of the Valkyries”, is surely worth the ticket price alone.
