|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Coppola's controversial Vietnam war epic, based on Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness. Special agent Sheen journeys
upriver into Cambodia with orders to find and kill errant officer Brando, leading him (and viewer) on a mesmerizing odyssey
of turbulent, often surreal encounters. Unfortunately, film's conclusion--when he does find Brando--is cerebral and murky.
Still, a great movie experience most of the way, with staggering, Oscar-winning photography by Vittorio Storaro. The
documentary HEARTS OF DARKNESS: A FILMMAKER'S APOCALYPSE chronicles the film's production. Technovision.
