APOCALYPSE NOW REDUX

Synopsis:

FRIDAY, JUNE 4TH AT 7:30PM

APOCALYPSE NOW REDUX
Dir. Francis Ford Coppola
1979, American Zoetrope, 202 min.

Reluctant assassin Martin Sheen leads a motley crew of soldiers upriver to find unhinged and off-the-map colonel Marlon Brando in director Francis Ford Coppola's wildly surreal Vietnam epic. The film's arresting score incorporates both original music by Coppola and his father, composer Carmine Coppola, and Wagner's β€œThe Ring of the Nibelung.” Adapted from Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, and co-starring – among many others – Robert Duvall and Dennis Hopper.
