Critics Reviews

Chicago Tribune
Magnificent to look at, thrilling, ingenious, spellbinding and superbly done on every level, this is not just one of the best films of the year or the decade, but of all time.

Rolling Stone
This is the untamed Apocalypse that Coppola envisioned in 1979 before money and mental pressures made him fear he had created something too long, too weird and too morally demanding for the masses.

I was disappointed that this film wasn't as good as I hoped. Note that I'm not saying it's terrible. It was really slow-paced, which sucks since it's such a long movie. I found myself checking the time constantly. I thought it wasn't THAT realistic...

The most boring film I've ever seen
Oh my god,what a waste of my time!Never in my days of watching movies have I been so infuriated by a film. For starters, the movie just doesn't make any sense. There is no logical transition from scene to scene. As I was watching this movie, I found...

In turns airy and dark (symbolic and literal), this film is a dark dream; it can say lots of things (it can say what you want it to) and it can show you yourself, your heart, your father's heart. It's about Vietnam, but it doesn't have to be about...

I found Apocalypse Now to be one of those journey to hell movies. If you look at it in a context of book you would similar themes to Dante's "Inferno." With such things as Lust, Sloth, and Eveny then you can see its more about a man journey through...

Apocalypse Now is incredible
For the dummies who don't know, Apocalypse Now is based on Conrad's "Heart of Darkness." The main idea behind it is how outside our well ordered society, the white man (boo) goes completely insane and becomes a maniacal murderer of ethnic...

a true masterpiece
Citizen Kane, A Touch of Evil, The Dark Knight and Apocalypse Now: all great movies, and all have something in common: they all deal with the idea of the noble man, the best among humans, a man destined for greatness... but something goes wrong...

I love the smell of napalm in the morning
a terrific masterpiece, but you have to take into consideration that it's a long and a bit attritional thing to watch. anyway, as one of the finest anti-war stories you can find, it goes right into your must-see list.
