I have to watch Apocalypse Now some time today or my mom is sending it back to Netflix. Too bad it's three hours long.
Whatever you do, please do not watch the Redux version first.
It's a much deeper film than what it appears to be. I especially like how Willard punches a mirror, which reflects (no pun) his own self-destruction.
I loved how Coppola manages to make this film circular. At the beginning of the film where Willard clearly has a mental breakdown, this is because of him killing Col. Kurtz just as the napalm in the beginning of the film is the destruction of the Kurtz compound, IMO.
