Coppola owned the 70s!
The Conversation might have even been his best.

from sheen's acoholism to coppola's cocaine problems to brando's god complex, to a hurricane wiping the set, that movie was so plagued by problems, it just couldn't be anything other than ****ing genius.

everytime i hear 'the end', i want to butcher a water buffalo

fun fact: sheen doesn't remember shooting that scene with the mirror at the beginning.
I don't ever recall hearing about Coppola's cocaine problem? I know that Hopper was an enormous coke head and was never remotely sober on the set of AN.

I found that Duvall's performance was outstanding. Everytime I heard people speak of the film they spoke about Sheen and Brando's performance, but Duvall killed it.

Probably his 'smallest' film in terms of production and theme. "Best" is overstating when you've got films like the two Godfathers and Apocalypse Now on your 70s resume, but yeah, The Conversation is another 70s classic from Francis C.

The truth is it that Brando was a fat slob who refused to memorize his lines and production had to be halted for almost 3 weeks for Coppola to work with him. Ultimately they managed to almost shoot Brando out of the movie and had to limit his appearances to dark scenes and his attire to dark clothes to hide his 300lb carcass.

Duvall got the film's biggest line, "I love the smell of napalm in the morning", and biggest scene, the helicopter attack with Ride of the Valkyres playing at full blast. That piece and the Doors' The End will forever be associated with the film.

Boy!!!. I remember going with my dad downtown to York theatre on Mackay street to watch Apocalyspe now. York theatre at that time was considered to have the greatest sounding accoustics. 1979 and I remember that tiger jumping out of the jungle like it was yesterday!
Full metal jacket also comes to mind among my favorite '' going to war '' movies.
For tv shows, I really enjoyed these in no special order
1) The sopranos...all seasons
2)breaking bad
3)homeland
4) the killing ( the first 2 seasons were fantastic, the 3rd not as good)
5) the US version of shameless....funny as heck
6)deadwood was great, but it stopped too quick after 3 seasons...frustrating end
7)eastbound and down has a dark funny pathetic side to it that makes me cringe, but I keep watching
8)house of cards is also pretty good with kevin spacey...slower paced, but portrays a dark side of politics

Absolutely loved Apocalypse now, i consider it copolas best, some scenes are just out of this world, especialy the napalm explosion scene, the way he shoots it is just jaw dropping, the way duvall points to the incoming jets with the camera sliding, iiinnnnsane

love everything about the movie, ..although i get that apocalypse now is the WHOLE story, i prefer the redux (as my HF name suggests ) version as it gets straight to the point on a couple of things

another scene i absolutely love with the music is when they finally arrive to the end of the river, and that backround beat thats been playing for 4 mins already is just mixing in with the tension as the boat approaches a sea of canoes, and the way they clear the path, everythings just so cool

Apocalypse Now is one of the greatest films ever made - for so many reasons.

I'm in a good film school now and we're forced to see a bunch of old movies, this one is really interesting and it's not really long at all. Check it out guys!

An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge (youtube)

Waitasec... didn't you just finish watching Homeland? And now you're bombing through Breaking Bad?? Dude, I don't know if it's safe to mainline two of the most addictive TV substances around! Seriously, pace yourself, get outside, eat a vegetable, don't allow the shows to take over your life!

You're this close to an intervention of Mary Tyler Moore reruns.
