    Apocalypse Now: Final Cut


    “They train young men to drop fire on people. But their commanders won’t allow them to write ‘fuck’ on their airplanes because it is obscene.”

    A personal favourite and quite simply a beautiful film poster for the 40th Anniversary remastered & restored release of Francis Ford Coppola’s multi award winning Vietnam war epic “Apocalypse Now”. There is no doubting the influence and impact of Coppola’s masterpiece with any paper hugely desirable and the 2019 Laurent Durieux designed UK quad film poster offered here is no exception. The imagery truly captures the cloying atmosphere and dark tone of the movie with a close up shot of army assassin Benjamin Willard (Martin Sheen) emerging from the river with his target Colonel Kurtz (Marlon Brando) a reflected mirror image. The red and green colour palette only enhances the whole look; absolutely stunning  poster (the photo just doesn’t do this poster justice, it needs to be seen to be appreciated) with truly memorable imagery for Coppola’s voyage into the ‘Heart of Darkness’. Originally rolled (as issued) this totally unrestored example presents and displays to excellent effect with only minimal handling wear that represents an incredible piece of original movie memorabilia from one of the finest film’s ever made…“Napalm, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that”

    Trivia: While in pre-production, Francis Ford Coppola consulted his friend and mentor Roger Corman for advice about shooting in the Phillipines. Corman’s advice: “Don’t go.” Shooting, originally scheduled for six weeks, took 16 months.
