Apocalypse Now is complete madness and insanity. The complete madness and insanity is what compels viewers to fall in love with the movie. The movie is, I believe, one of the best depictions of the Vietnam war, with amazing performances from actor best known for his role in The Godfather franchise, Marlon Brando. The movie produced a fresh and new view on the art of film making and story telling with a powerful punch. Fantasy and reality are infused in the darkness of the war movie. To have a film so bloody, unapologetic and astounding at this time was a brave move by director Coppola. A must watch but not for the weak hearted.
