I Love the Smell of Napalm in the Morning - Robert Duvall in APOCALYPSE NOW - Film Clip

Heralded by many as the film that crystallizes most perfectly the experience of the Vietnam War, Francis Ford Coppola's hallucinatory masterpiece APOCALYPSE NOW has been painstakingly restored by his own Zoetrope studios under his close supervision, and will be released back in cinemas by Optimum Releasing on May 27th 2011. Martin Sheen (TV's The West Wing) stars as Army Captain Willard, a troubled man sent on a dangerous top-secret mission into Cambodia to assassinate a rogue Green Beret, Col. Kurtz (Marlon Brando, The Godfather, On the Waterfront, Last Tango in Paris), who has barricaded himself in a remote outpost. As Willard ventures deeper and deeper into the wilderness of the jungle, he embarks on a strange journey that leads him to Kurtz -- but also forces him to come face to face with the terrifying vision of the heart of darkness in us all. With an all-star critically acclaimed cast that also includes Robert Duvall (The Road, Crazy Heart, The Godfather Pt I & II), Dennis Hopper (Easy Rider, Blue Velvet), Harrison Ford (The Indiana Jones series) and Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix Trilogy), APOCALYPSE NOW so impressed the Cannes jury when shown as only a work in progress that it won the Palme D'Or that year (tied with Tin Drum). Vittorio Storaro's stunning cinematography and masterful sound editing from the genius Walter Murch won the film deserved Oscars and were just two of many awards the film has won over the years.

Apocalypse Now Redux - Escena del napalm y la Tabla del Coronel

APOCALYPSE NOW Clip - Ride of the Valkyries (1979) Francis Ford Coppola

In Vietnam in 1970, Captain Willard (Martin Sheen) takes a perilous and increasingly hallucinatory journey upriver to find and terminate Colonel Kurtz (Marlon Brando), a once-promising officer who has reportedly gone completely mad. In the company of a Navy patrol boat filled with street-smart kids, a surfing-obsessed Air Cavalry officer (Robert Duvall), and a crazed freelance photographer (Dennis Hopper), Willard travels further and further into the heart of darkness.

Para acabar con este post os dejo con el resumen de la película que hace Fimaffinity Apocalypse Now: "Durante la guerra de Vietnam, al joven Capitán Willard, un oficial de los servicios de inteligencia del ejército estadounidense, se le ha encomendado entrar en Camboya con la peligrosa misión de eliminar a Kurtz, un coronel renegado que se ha vuelto loco. El capitán deberá ir navegar por el río hasta el corazón de la selva, donde parece ser que Kurtz reina como un buda despótico sobre los miembros de la tribu Montagnard, que le adoran como a un dios."
