Critic Reviews of "Apocalypse Now"Washington PostDecember 18, 2015
It's the cumulative effect generated by mixing richly portentous imagery with absurdly portentous prose, starkly portentous sound and flatulently portentous music.New York Daily NewsAugust 14, 2015
Certainly, no movie in history has ever presented stronger proof that war is living hell.Time OutMay 25, 2011
A film of pure sensation, dazzling audiences with light and noise, laying bare the stark horror - and unimaginable thrill - of combat.VarietyJuly 02, 2007
Alternately a brilliant and bizarre film, Francis Coppola's four year 'work in progress' offers the definitive validation to the old saw, 'war is hell.'Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
...it's wonderful to see this hallucinatory folly-cum-near masterpiece again on the big screen.Houston ChronicleJuly 21, 2005
Apocalypse Now did help provide me, and many of my generation, with a vision of what film art could achieve, a vision so magnificent it doomed us to spend much of our subsequent moviegoing lives in a funk.Seanax.comDecember 10, 2016
Coppola's vivid-as-an-LSD-trip take on the madness of war is a one of a kind film, a mess-terpiece held together by sheer audacity and imagination.Graffiti With PunctuationSeptember 27, 2014
I'm revisiting and 'REDUX-ing' one of our five star film entries, to ensure that it is paid the dues it deserves. Let's get to it, with extreme prejudice.Movie MezzanineFebruary 01, 2014
The word "apocalypse" derives from the Greek for "revelation," so in effect the title of Coppola's masterpiece is a call for us to wake up and stop lying to ourselves about who we are and what we did and what we still have the power to do.Scene 360July 02, 2013
reveals the horror of necessary madness.2UE That Movie ShowJanuary 02, 2013
With a famously horrific and documentary inspiring shoot it's almost unfathomable how Francis Ford Coppolla managed to harness the chaotic energy into one of the most potent examinations of war and masculinity to ever grace celluloid.Matt's Movie ReviewsJanuary 04, 2012
Perhaps Francis Ford Coppola's greatest directorial achievement, Apocalypse Now is a visually stunning war film that has no equal, with cinematographer Vittorio Storaro capturing the films Philippine location to great effect.
