Richmond Hill's rating of the film Apocalypse Now

The human condition in extremis or relocated madness extant? Variations on precarious sanity for sure. Essentially a series of elemental vignettes on psycho-trauma in the face of nihilism, stupidity and wickedness, the like most of us will never endure - for that I’m thankful. Technically magnificent with a studied tempo, hallucinogenic photography but marred occasionally by the heavy musical cues.
