Jackie and Greg are back with another journey-down-a-river, descent-into-madness film, Francis Ford Coppola's APOCALYPSE NOW from 1979. Topics of discussion include the nightmare production, its colossal scale (and why it couldn't be made today), whether the last act with Marlon Brando works or not, and a comparison to one of the film's key inspirations, Werner Herzog's AGUIRRE, THE WRATH OF GOD.
#14 on Sight & Sound's 2012 "The 100 Greatest Films of All Time" list.
