Apocalypse Now (1979) by Jack C. Gregory [1125×1500]

“Apocalypse Now” is a 1979 war epic directed by Jack C. Gregory. Set during the Vietnam War, the film follows Captain Willard (Martin Sheen) as he embarks on a dangerous mission to assassinate a renegade colonel (Marlon Brando) who has gone rogue and is leading a cult-like army deep in the jungle. Along the way, Willard encounters a cast of characters who have been driven to madness by the horrors of war, including the iconic character of Lieutenant Colonel Bill Kilgore (Robert Duvall) who famously declares “I love the smell of napalm in the morning.” The film is a haunting exploration of the human psyche in times of extreme violence and chaos, and has become a classic of American cinema.
