Apocalypse Now

1979

Francis Coppola
Director

Astonishing take on the Vietnam conflict as a Special Ops captain is detailed to assassinate a rogue colonel. Taps into a special kind of madness. The set pieces are spectacular. The 2006 DVD release boasts both versions. I'm hoping for the UK release version which ends with 'fire falling from the sky'.
