"Tu eres dos ¿no lo ves? uno que mata y otro que ama...No sé si soy un animal o un Dios" retrata las consecuencias psicológicas y el horror que representa en todos los aspectos la guerra. El cuestionamiento de las verdaderas intenciones de esta y la ruptura de los limites morales y psicológicos son los campos que explora una película con una cinematografía muy sobresaliente.

A film so intrinsically about the self-referentiality of the contemporary world and the insatiable human desire for both mystery and self-immolation that I always give this the nod over The Godfather films.
Re-watching it today it occurred to me that Apocalypse Now is, in addition to every other superlative that has ever been thrown at it, one of the great contemporary films noir. Tweaking the familiar setup, Coppola places his loner anti-hero on the "one last job" in the middle of an absurdist, Dantean war picture. The classic expression of existential despair in post-WWII cinema is re-inscribed as surrealist opera.
i rewatch it as soon as i finished reading Heart of Darkness, and i admit it, this one's more interesting and more related to the Kurtz's horror. this might be because i knew the film first, and well, it might be a different story if i knew the book first. but i can't ignore the greatness in Mr. Brando's Kurtz.
I'm embarrassed to say how long it actually took me to finishing watching Redux. In my defense, I always watch at night -- just as I'm about to go to bed. I haven't seen the original, but from all I've read, it seems I'm going to enjoy it more. I didn't care for the French plantation or the Playboy bunnies either. That being said, this film is epic and the lighting alone is worth 4 stars.
