"Charlie don't surf!"
- Lieutenant Colonel Bill Kilgore
"... and we think he should / Charlie don't surf and you know that it ain't no good / Charlie don't surf for his hamburger Momma / Charlie's gonna be a napalm star"
- The Clash
I really haven't got much to say about this film, more than that I'm more convinced now than ever that (after yet another rewatch) this is an anti-imperialist statement, it's an escapist drama about alienated loners who doesn't belong anywhere in this world, it's a drug induced and extremely brutal horror film, it's a psychedelic odyssey into the madness of war (with Colonel Kurtz's allegorical gates of hell as final destination), it's also a hope for peace, and - most of all - Apocalypse Now is one of the greatest films ever made.
