Apocalypse Now

Apocalypse Now - Not much insight, thought or commentary I can add to this monumental beast of modern cinema. I watched the Director’s ‘Redux’ cut, which took the, already long, film to an expansive grandeur of 202 minutes. I was absorbed, thrilled and effortlessly immersed in the mesmeric Heart of Darkness journey. An epic example of sustained and coiling suspense – ploughing through a hybridised jungle of genre flux: adventure, introspection, horror, war, politics, social commentary, more horror, character study, literary dimensions, action, parody, romance, grand tragedy and above all, as mentioned before ‘the horror, the horror…’ 10/10
