Coppola & Soderbergh talk Apocalypse Now at Tribeca

Described by veteran film critic Roger Ebert as 'one of the key films of the century', Francis Ford Coppola's two-time Oscar-winning masterpiece Apocalypse Now proved a stunning, heavy-hitting portrait of the horror, futility, absurdity and psychological damage inflicted by war. Celebrating its 40th anniversary, the Tribeca Film Festival presents a special HD screening of an all new restored director's cut version of the film, with an insightful discussion between Coppola and fellow Academy Award-winning director Steven Soderbergh about the making thereof and restoration process.

Inspired by Joseph Conrad's 1899 novella Heart Of Darkness, Apocalypse Now follows a twisted modern odyssey undertaken by the troubled US Army Captain Benjamin L. Willard, portrayed by Martin Sheen. Willard's mission is to find and take out an American Colonel named Kurtz who has 'gone native' and fashioned himself the demi-god leader of a group of indigenous Vietnamese troops. As they both spiral further into the depths of insanity, they come face to face with the abyss that exists beyond the ignorant bliss of everyday life in the West.

Such a joyful hoot. With its kinetic dancing, broad mugging and belty anthems, it makes you believe in musical comedy again.

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, "Hamilton" is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.
