APOCALYPSE NOW (1979)
A true cinematic experience that astonishes both sight and sound. The finest war film ever made has only improved with age. It ranks among the most visually stunning film experiences I've ever had. The journey up the river mirrors the exploration of the human soul and it's consistently compelling. Traveling across Man's tortured psyche, animal instincts, carnal desires, confused history and teetering on the thin line between the rational and insane, this film proves to be an undeniable masterpiece. (Not to mention, the sound design is stupendous.) The Redux version, although controversial, enriches an already hugely complex story. Technically speaking, has there ever been a more accomplished film? The final resting place is the heart of darkness and you don’t just watch the film, you experience it.
Director: Francis Ford Coppola
