Synopsis

Francis Ford Coppola's stunning vision of man's heart of darkness revealed through the peculiar madness of the Vietnam War. Lieutenant Willard (Martin Sheen) receives orders to seek out a renegade military outpost led by the mysterious Colonel Kurtz (Marlon Brando), and to "terminate his command with extreme predjudice." Willard's mission becomes an epic journey into himself, as he ultimately recognizes an aspect of his own soul in the strange Colonel Kurtz. With APOCALYPSE NOW, Coppola created a definitive portrayal of the scope of the Vietnam War, making it one of the most powerful films of all time. The picture was nominated for eight Academy Awards and Best Supporting Actor for Robert Duvall, Best Sound, and Best Cinematography.
