Apocalypse Now ★★★★★

I'm trying to wrap my head around this being so weird and still so universally adored. Adapting a story about the worst parts of 19th century colonialism to the familiar setting of the Vietnam war and making it feel like a descent into an allegorical inferno should not be possible without being too pretentious for a lot of viewers. I am entirely awestruck by this scope and the pleasure of having my first watch be in 70 mm.
