At the height of the Vietnam war, Captain Benjamin Willard is sent on a dangerous mission that, officially, "does not exist, nor will it ever exist."

When I think of the greatest films ever made, I think of the films that fill me most with awe and reverence.

This film has one of the greatest production designs in film, not to mention one of the greatest (ie troubled) production histories ever.

Francis Ford Coppola almost lost his mind, Martin Sheen almost died from a heart attack while filming, Marlon Brando showed up to the set in the Philippines without reading the script or the book it was based upon, Heart of Darkness.
