The Coppola part is one of the most unbearably shit things I've ever seen committed to film. It's so bad I'd consider the erasing of The Godfather 1 and 2, Apocalypse Now and The Conversation from celluloid history just to unsee the fucking thing. Awful. Just awful. Awful awful awful. Awful.
'I wanna get my hands on those murdering bastards.'
'That'll pass Cliff, everything passes.'
Woah. I was not expecting that. Like an existential 'First Blood' that transcends 'revenge movie' into something far weightier through a brilliant script and lead performances.
It predates and near-enough renders 'First Blood' worthless guff. And I [used to] love 'First Blood'.
