Nel 1979 Francis Ford Coppola presentò al Festival di Cannes Apocalypse Now vincendo la prestigiosa Palma d'Oro; seguirono otto nominations all'Oscar e due statuette per la fotografia (a Vittorio Storaro) e per il sonoro. Il film diventò immediatamente il simbolo di una generazione che si opponeva alla guerra dopo averne conosciuto l'orrore. Con questo film, Coppola e Mili ...more

Un libro muy interesante sobre la concepción y realización de Apocalypse Now. A manera de anécdotas, el autor relata cómo surgió la inquietud de un cineasta laureado por una cinta como El Padrino, de filmar una película como esta, con un guion basado en El Corazón de las Tinieblas de Joseph Conrad. Su finalidad era hacer una película de autor, sin quitarle la dote de espectacularidad y aventura, conservando una visión de la guerra y la condición humana en esta clase de situaciones. Una vez adent ...more

Lots of good stuff in here. Walter Murch's input alone makes it worth a read. As I observed before, the title is dumb. There's an abundance of insight into the making of the film, and the development of the story and characters. My only major gripe is that it goes off on occasional tangents that don't go anywhere, and is a little stilted from time to time. I'm glad I read it, though, as Apocalypse Now is a film for the ages, and as a film I love, I want to immerse myself in it. 3.5 out of 5 star ...more

Talk about bad timing. After years waiting for a good Apocalypse Now book, Peter Cowie's comes out, right around the same time as "Apocalypse Now Redux." The irony being that Cowie wrote the book in 2000, a full year before Coppola unveiled his reworked masterpiece. This means that, due to how long the publishing process takes, the book has hardly any information about Redux, which is a shame. As Cowie's interview with Coppola took place in 1999, there are no quotes or thoughts from the director ...more

A masterpiece about war

The insanity of war , the insanity of power , through the eyes of man in his journey through what seems to be the hell in earth during the vitnamese war
A tough devastating journey to assasin a colonel that 'gone insane'
But to witness the insanity as such in the souls that pass away , in the eyes of both soldiers and civilians
And the insanity that power give to its holders

To witness ,
The Horror , The Horror

This is a great book for fans of Apocalypse Now. It covers the film and all of its troubles from pre-production right up to its theatrical release. You get rare photos of Harvey Keitel as Willard before Martin Sheen took over and a chapter on the over 5 hour workprint of the film. They're are some things not covered here like the Redux version for example but in the end this is a good indepth look at one of my favorite films.

The definitive story. The complete screenplay with all the deleted scenes inserted. Some loose ends that are seen in the original film are tied up in this screenplay, as well as the new version of the movie.

Although I already knew a lot of the information in this book, there was enough new stuff, and it was written so well, that I enjoyed it immensely.
