Sheen hunts down a renegade Colonel in Coppola's legendary, drug-soaked, hallucinatory journey upriver. Apocalypse Now is the Vietnam war as mad napalm-scented Wagnerian opera. From its eight nominations, the film won Oscars for Best Sound and for Vittorio Storaro's majestic cinematography. Delirious, explosive, brilliant - this is an unforgettable 1970s monster. Based on Joseph Conrad's novel, 'Heart of Darkness'.
The Vietnam War rages and US Captain Willard (Martin Sheen) is sent on a mission to assassinate Colonel Kurtz (Marlon Brando), a renegade American officer who has set up his own kingdom in the heart of the jungle. His journey begins with a devastating aerial assault on a small Vietnamese village, the attacking helicopters booming Wagner's 'Ride of the Valkyrie' out of their speakers, and becomes progressively more deranged as it moves up the river.
