“it barely even looks like Hackman!!!”
That’s what I was thinking. My first thought was “that looks like one of those character likenesses from a wax museum.”

I have faith in the transfer on this one, the Lionsgate blu-ray of Apocalypse Now is wonderful. But yeah, shitty box art.
they should have went with the original theatrical poster, for this imo:
There’s a (German, I think) poster based on this image:
that seems pretty appropriate.
