At Home with War in “Apocalypse Now” (1979) by Francis Ford Coppola

SUBTEXT Literature and Film Podcast

Lieutenant Colonel Bill Kilgore doesn’t flinch for enemy fire, loves the smell of napalm in the morning, and would literally kill for good surfing and a beachside barbecue. His attempts to recreate home within the theater of war render him the perfect foil to a certain upriver madman, who seems intent on making high culture serve the purposes of primitive horror. And yet Kurtz is ready to argue that it is his methods that are more sound, just because they embrace their ruthlessness more honestly, in contrast to the impotent half-measures of an imperial power that can rationalize its atrocities as collateral damage in the service of a larger humanitarian goal. Which approach should evoke more horror? Wes & Erin analyze Francis Ford Coppola’s 1979 film “Apocalypse Now.”The conversation continues on our after-show (post)script.

Francis Ford Coppola

WTF Happened To....?!

In this episode, we look at legendary director Francis Ford Coppola, who gifted us with such cinematic gems as The Godfather Trilogy, Apocalypse Now, The Conversation, The Outsiders and Bram Stoker's Dracula, before pulling a near disappearing act in the later part of his career, dipping in to direct vastly different films, such as Jack with Robin Williams, an adaptation of John Grisham's The Rainmaker and then some truly odd, underwhelming flicks like Youth Without Youth and Twixt. Coppola has also worked heavily as a producer and even has his own wine, which you can pick up at most liquor stores, but his absence from greatness on the big screen has left us wondering WTF Happened to Francis Ford Coppola?
