Francis Ford Coppola's stunning vision of man's heart of darkness revealed through the madness of the Vietnam War. Captain Willard (Martin Sheen) receives orders to seek out a renegade military outpost led by the mysterious Colonel Kurtz (Marlon Brando). Willard's mission: "Terminate with extreme prejudice." One of the most powerful films of all time, Apocalypse Now was nominated for eight Academy Awards and won Two for Best Sound and Best Cinematography. Based on the novel, 'Heart of Darkness' by Joseph Conrad. Includes early performances by Harrison Ford and Laurence Fishburne.
Oh man... the bullshit piled up so fast in Vietnam, you needed wings to stay above it.
You can either surf, or you can fight!
