This story was written Kathleen Carroll. I, for one, am not so sure. And, certainly, no movie in history has ever presented stronger proof that war is living hell.

New York Daily News There, thanks to the marvel of glorious Technicolor and deafening Dolby sound, is Vietnam in all its sound and fury, recaptured in boldly executed sequences of such stunning force that they leave the audience emotionally shattered and completely overwhelmed.

The raid begins at dawn and, as the helicopters head towards the target, the cameras shift to the village square, where giggling school children are being quickly herded away by their teacher. The silence is broken by the thunderous roar of the helicopters. Marlon Brando plays seemingly-mad "Col. Kuntz" in United Artists "Apocalypse Now" in AP With the music blasting away, the helicopters swoop down on the village, mowing down every man, woman and child in sight.

As the explosion continue, the Americans land - some showing understandable reluctance.

A badly wounded Vietnamese begs for water. A priest struggles to say Mass in front of a burned out church. As an added precaution, fighter jets spray the nearby jungle with the dreaded napalm. By nightfall, the Americans are sitting pretty on the beach, enjoying T-bone steaks and beer.

As the jungle becomes more impenetrable and threatening, the movie takes on a more surrealistic, nightmarish quality.

The setting, which is dominated by a temple, looks like something out of an old Cecil B. Natives, looking ghost-like in their white war paint, stand at mute attention, surrounded by dead bodies that are draped in such a way that the whole gruesome scene immediately suggests a painting by Hieronymous Bosch.

But then Kurtz appears, looking like a wise Buddha with his bald head, but reading passages from T.

Eliot and generally shouting such pretentious gibberish that one can hardly wait for Willard to put him out of his misery. What Coppola is trying to do is to examine the troubling moral questions that were raised by a war in which the distinctions between good and evil became blurred and it is obvious that he, like most of us, is no closer to finding answers for the questions than he was before he undertook this gargantuan project.

Actors tend to become lost in movies of this size and scope. Sheen, as the battle-weary Willard, whose sanity, unlike that of Marlow, seems questionable from the very beginning, has a most passive, role which allows him to do little more than express shock and disbelief. Brando is perhaps the main disappointment. Photographed as he is in the shadows, with his words not always discernible, he makes a magnetic, but frustrating opaque Kurtz. Only Duvall seems to have realized that for an actor to be noticed in this psychedelic horror show, he must play it big, and his performance as the rabid militarist, who is so supremely cocky he never so much as flinches when standing in the line of fire, is so much of a manic energy he all but leaps off the screen.

Coppola, with his bravura style of direction, has created a movie of harrowing intensity and staggering power.
