Apocalypse Now

When presenting Apocalypse Now at the 1979 Cannes Film Festival, Francis Ford Coppola, reflecting on the production problems and general air of insanity which beset the filming of his war epic in the Philippines, declared: “My film is not about Vietnam, it is Vietnam.”

It was the type of utterance that could have been delivered by John Milius, Coppola’s famously macho co-screenwriter and originator of such treasured lines as “I love the smell of napalm in the morning”, and “Charlie Don’t Surf!”

To celebrate our screening of the documentary Milius we present the war movie to end all war movies.
