THEY SAY: “Apocalypse Now is the best Vietnam film, one of the greatest of all films, because it pushes beyond the others, into the dark places of the soul. It is not about war so much as about how war reveals truths we would be happy never to discover.” – Roger Ebert, 1999
WE SAY: Consistently ranked as one of the greatest films of all time, this formidable milestone of cinema transcends its “war movie” genre – it’s a haunting, graphic and grueling meditation on humanity and the darkness that contrasts it.
