Landmark Moments in Film: Apocalypse Now

What do you get here? We’ve post­ed below a 7+ minute clip from Fran­cis Ford Cop­po­la’s Acad­e­my Award-win­ning film on the Viet­nam War from 1979. It fea­tures the famous “Ride of the Valkyries” scene.  It’s worth a look, but I would actu­al­ly rec­om­mend watch­ing this longer, 18 minute clip here, which includes the Valkyries scene and takes you to “I love the smell of napalm in the morn­ing.” (We unfor­tu­nate­ly could­n’t embed the longer clip on our site.)

To see Apoc­a­lypse Now in full, you can buy the film here or rent the movie from Net­flix.
