Synopsis

Martin Sheen, Marlon Brando, Robert Duval
By adding 50 minutes to his masterly 1979 Vietnam War movie (already of epic proportions), Coppola has surprisingly offered us a film that doesn't appear much longer than before. The story, inspired by Conrad's Heart of Darkness, charts Capt Willard's (Sheen) trip up river from Saigon into darkest Cambodia looking for Col Kurtz (Brando), a brilliant but quite mad soldier with extreme methods. If you're new to the film, or have only seen it on the small screen, you are in for a treat. With souped-up sound and rejuvenated colours, this masterpiece displays an ambition sadly lacking in today's Hollywood.
Best Cinematography, Best Sound, 6 nominations, Academy Awards 1980
Palme d'Or and FIPRESCI Award, Cannes 1979
