In Vietnam in 1970, Captain Willard takes a perilous and increasingly hallucinatory journey upriver to find and terminate a renegade Colonel.
Director: Francis Ford Coppola
Won 1980 Golden Globes Award for Best Motion Picture - Drama
Francis Ford Coppola's haunting, hallucinatory Vietnam War epic is cinema at its most audacious and visionary.
Certainly, no movie in history has ever presented stronger proof that war is living hell.
Apocalypse Now is not merely the greatest film to come out of the Vietnam experience but one of the great works about the madness of our times.
The best of it is grand, mysterious and oddly possessed.
Tagline: I love the smell of napalm in the morning.
