Laurent Durieux’s incredible screenprint for the Francis Ford Coppolla classic “Apocalypse Now”. This poster was released by Mondo in 2018 as part of their “Art of Laurent Durieux: Part Two” show and is long SOLD OUT. A personal favourite and quite simply a beautiful film poster for the multi award winning Vietnam war epic. There is no doubting the influence and impact of Coppola’s masterpiece with any paper hugely desirable and this 2018 Laurent Durieux design offered here is no exception. The colours and imagery truly captures the cloying jungle setting  and dark tone of the movie (bodies strung from the trees). The dark purple 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). Truly memorable imagery for Coppola’s voyage into the ‘Heart of Darkness’. Offered here is the limited ‘variant’ edition which has been signed by the artist (initialed LD) and is hand-numbered #109 of 175 produced. Originally rolled, flat, unfolded (as issued) this lovely example presents and displays to excellent effect that represents an incredible piece of alternative movie art 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.
