Apocalypse Now

Apocalypse Now ★★★★★

Where did this come from. This was not the movie I expected. I expected a 70s war flick, halfway through I realized it was 3 hours. This movie has 3 parts. The surfing contest, the golden retriever puppy, and the horror. Each one of them brings you deeper and deeper into the movie. There will be deaths in the movie yes, no spoiler there, but the first of the boats crews death hit me hard. This seems to be the best snapshot of the war.

My 2 favorite things were the smoke, red and yellow.  

And the music. The non stop great music. Some recognizable hits and the repeated beats that fill every scene with tension. 

If you watch this film, don’t take it lightly. Realize it from the start that you are in for a fucking ride.
