Im watching the 3:16:04 run time one.
This movie loosely based on the 1899 book entitled Heart of Darkness By Joseph Conrad.
Never read that book but its based in Congo. I find that super interesting that take one story then, base it in a completely different setting. Leaves room for interpretation. Leaves room for creativity. Ok Joseph Conrad; 1857 – 1924 Born in Russia. Didnt speak english till twenties then became one of the greatest English writers. Themes of nautical and courage of humans at sea in the midst of nature. Me its been a long ass August. Just cam back from some wild as bush party by Red Deer. It was a good time. Got kinda rained out and the body a little sore. Otherwise was good visiting old friends. Decided to start off more blog with a classic. It sems like Vietnam is coming up in discussion too fairly often these days so it seems appropriate. Plus I been listening to a bunch of the doors lately. So there you go. Its not my typical set up neither so thats the cause of the delay. Also trying to take a break from screentime. Aight Captain so and so. Cant remember his name. Sorry just back to Joseph Conrad for a second. This guy seems liek a well travelled individual. Family man, lots of friends. Lots of places. Also in the same hand, an ‘outsider,’ and a exiled. I think its worth some further investigation one day. Ford Francis Coppola, must be a interesting dude to be inspired by him Another note Director still alive. So Someone whose still alive that was making movies in the 60s and 70s. Holy shit Nicholas cage is his nephew. Lets See Outsiders, God Father, Bram Stokers. Apocalypse now won a bunch of awards. Ok back to the Captain. Opening scene, from the rotors to the napalm to the ceiling fan. Brilliant. He jolts outta sleep looks outside: “Saigon, Shit.” Divorced his wife from the first tour. Waiting for a mission. Like they bring it up like room service. Never caught that one. Lol, makes me laugh the MPs show up. They got the enveloppe, “they like are you alright ?” The captain responds whats it fucking look like. Lol Thats kinda humourous. The cast is just stacked. Its like This what made em famous I suppose. Martin Sheen is Captain Willard. Marlon Brando. Lawrence Fishburne. Hehe compare the matrix and this movie ahaha theyre so far apart. Good for him. I like deep contrasts. Who else Harrison Ford. I dunno Martin Sheen is kind o a one man show in this though. The rest is really supporting cast. Marlon Brando or the Colonel Kutz is omnipresent although dont get to see him till the end. Of course spoiler alert. Watch the movie its 42 years old. Hey buddy You gonna shut the door!? Thats funny he thinks hes getting arrested but nah hes got some top level orders. To be fair gotta be bat shit crazy to accept and complete an assignment like that. Darg his ass to the shower. Cold ass shower lol. Got the government official witht he tie. Theyre all spooks lol. Goes over the crazy missions hes not allowed to talk about. Talks about going up the river thats a live cable running through the whole war. Im familiar with a bit of it. VC Running operations outta Cambodia with the war laws preventing GI’s from crossing the border, yet being attacked from there. I know some special forces operations that went through there from some old books I read. Its funny how the Harrison ford, Im not sure maybe hes a Major or something, but he go a whole American style trailer complete with plants growing in old tires. Just how would he get a American style trailer out there would be some crazy logistics lol. By boat then to the airfield or Heavy cargo plane. Either way cant be cheap but makes a nice little touch of home. Specially high rank office some comforts of home lol. If I was him maybe did urself a little room under there lol. Hes got the roast beef dinner. Just completely surreal. Its pretty much amaerican homs style cooking,-in vietnam. Hes like you want some of this shrimp ? If so youll never have to prove ur courage again lol. Thats kinda funny. Then before they get to eat you get some psycho playback. basically gotta get this Run away special forces colonel hiding in Cambodia. Hes got his own army. The dinner scene is intersting. Talking about some abstract war and humanity things. You know its tricky to find out harrison ford insignia, looks like a artillery or swords but vertical. Black X, taller than skinny. Colonel G Lucas. I guess he was 37 when they filmed this. I know this was along ass process to film this. I watched a documentary the making of. I though it was fascinating.
Im on a mission with the Captain. Terminate with extreme prejudice. Thats all he ever says that dude.im on the mission long ass movie lol. Gotta get up that river. Ok 2 crossed rifles, Marines. Remind every marine your a rifleman first. Martial Nature of the job.No matter the assignment. some of that score music is pretty crazy. Wicked helicopter shots. He discusses how It was different all of a sudden the Colonel was american. Wasnt supposed to matter. The captain comments on how ridiculous it is, chargin a man with murder in vietnam was like handing out speeding tickets at the indy 500. Then what you just go back to america like nothing happened. Guess thats why he got a divorce. Accepts the mission cause nothing else to do lol. Well he says he wants to be in the jungle. Now he took a helicopter to the boat. And they ride off in the dusk. River patrol boat I guess isnt the worst place to be. You know looking at a map it would be difficult to travel up vietnam by river. Cambodia bot so much. Still youd end up in many built up areas. They travel down the coast they say. then it would be a hop skip and a jump to Cambodia, or phnom penh. Theres a genocide museum im looking at. Loks wild looks hot and condensed. Lots of 2 story stuctures. In later years, anyone though of being intellectual or knowing a foreign launguage was killed. A school turned prison. That prison played a big role during that time. Yikes wouldnt want to be around those times. Would be dangerous to walk the streets. Theyre so claled revolutionaries, but just a trail of failure and human death. Thnose pre made up busts, i guess people werent keen on celebrating genocide.. Its lawrence fishburn morn captain lol hes 17. I like the chef or the machinist probably the most outta the boat crew. Airborne at 38 yearas old lol.Arcligh they launched from Guam. The surfer guy scene. Landing assault craft and their boat. Its a bulldozer boat. Yeh this scene is just crazy its liek an operation must be hundreds in the scene. Kilgore lol hes crazy. Its robert duvall he actually likes the war. Wow Robert Duvall interesting actor. Bunch of Sci fi. And, well godfather he was actually in the army. Just a psycho hes like any man brave enough to fight with graphic shit can drink outta my canteen any day. The surfer garners more authority than the captaion lol just a bizarre scene. Helicoptering cows and beach party. Just a crazy weirdo. They base the recon on which river is best for surfing. hes a Army Major just Air cav crazy lol. Surfboards in Nam wh the hell not. They airlifting that boat but doesnt look like they show it. They carded the VC but there was nearly as many GI body bags. Sitting on hemets. Another crazy scene with dozen helicopters. Music. Heres the village now just explosion everwhere people running another hundreds in the scene. 2 villages in a row. Just that coastal bridge scene its awesome . Car mounted 50 cal. Flare in the chopper causes a kerfuffle. This air cav beach landing is quite the sight. They one guys like im not going. Gets dragged right off. Casualty collection point is a bit nervewracking. Casualties of the mission and surfing. The medivac gets grenaded and they got some problems now. Either surf or fight lol. Who says that. Oh theres the boat. This guy is freaking crazy lol. Hes got a baby now. Heres some F5s Im pretty sure. Ok the wtf. the major gets a baby inspects him then sends him off to the hospital. A bit of humanity/ Such a crazy character though. Hes like gripping that baby. Theres like bodies in the background.The other one its a twin boom aircraft. Im guessing the Fairchild C-82 packets, or the skymaster, but yea more like the c-82. Just that skymaser has a similar color less cockpit and fuselage. Nothing in the world smells like that. Love the smell of Napalm ion the morning iconic line. Smell like victory. He does look sad like one day the war will be over. Captain Willard is just like wtf. Captain like your not going out there. lol. Hes like wanna surf, get the fuck outta here lol. See a chancve and they escape. Wild ass scene though just money and pyro. The whole coast line destroyed in one morning. Vietnam many huge, many people operations. ITs like sight to see in film couldnt imagine seeing in person.They get the surfboard. Hes actually laughing. The captain is good shit to the boat crew. Must be dusk now. They took his surfboard lol. Just give me back the board, theyre flying around with megaphones lol. Another bizarre scene when they have to get out the boat.
Chance to show a tiger. I already seen this but definitely gets dark in the Jungle compared to the beach.
That tree and jungle they show up too is pretty wild. The chef is a sauce guy.
Ill have to put this down for a intermission, and come back to it got lots on the go.
The mangoe collection. Is that how you like it when its hot and hairy. Referring to combat. Maybe youll find out what you are in some factory in Ohio.
Well that boat goes through the shit. Surfer makes it. Im a saucier. Magoes off the tree thats kinda nice though. minus the tigers. Hes got a nelly bandaid something i never wrote. Oh the captaion sees something of interest. Freaking M-16 with that 3 round burst. Lol in suspense it got me too. lol Chef loses his shit lol. The captain runs right up to a bush hears a clicking then a tiger just jumps right out. Its a awesome scene and some good acting from chef. Hes just fed up with the war all he wants to do is cook. Its kinda humourous for the litle rag tag boat crew. Surfer laughing his ass off. Lawrence got the m60 he thinks theres enemy in the jungle, they leave the bucket behind. basically scramble onto the boat. The chief, chief of the boat, hes like a tiger? The captain just emotionless. Obviously a little rilled up. ad that with the surf colonel trying to get his surfboard back, what madness is this. Little trial by fire. First they had the 2 villages. Now the tiger in the jungle. With shots fired, nerve wracking. “Never get out of the Boat!”. Wow just learning about that particular boat and some history its quite fascinating. How would impede supplies on the delta. never get out of the boat the captain repeats, absolutely goddam right; Unless you were going all the way.. lol. Just a sinister line. This poor crew, yet its an adventure still. Leads into the captain reading more about Kutz. 38 yrs old airborne. Giving up carreer with green berets. Family couldnt understand him . The captain starts admiring him. Basically 2 assasins, one came first. Mutual respect. Id like to see that Joseph Conrad book. Just what are the similarities. Carreer soldioers with all the courses, Kutz coulda gone general instead he went for himself. Makes for a omnipresent character, there he is on paper with a air of deep mystery. Back on operation Kutz just teams up with some locals, and does his own opeartion no clearance, and major success. Theres some clues of renegade officer lol. Hes just gone solo, doesnt even need the army or its permission anymore. Thats probably why harrison ford aplus general and the spook are like hes gotta go. But after the press got the story they changed their tune and promoted him instead. Ballsy. Nice they end up at the strangest base. No doubt lawrence says what we all thinking. Its like a stage. Wow theres actually a Apocalypse Now event map. The base they pull up to is Hau Phat. Aint much street view around there but the place does exist. Giant warehouse of army supplies. The captain just full of surprises, he catches a tiniest bit of guff from the supply sarge and trashes him right over the counter lol. Of course no one else weariong the special forces outfit. The captain doesnt care theres a concert going on. Pretty funny, after that they get press box tickets and a bottle of booze for the capt. lol. Prolly doesnt wanna get disciplined. Again hes aight to the boat crew. The show. Just a wild ass scene. The stage is a water covered stage, with boat light surrounding it. Hundreds of extras again in the crowd. Its like a wrestling style crowd, they got signs, vibrant. You got a suzie Q playing in the background the playmates. Its a crazy fun scene, your like wow crazy soldiers on leave lol. Its like they outta control, desperation. Locals back behind a fence watching. Its liek a strip club gone wild. Little too crazy for the captn and chief. Others jumping over the barbwire to storm the stage its pandemonium mayhem. You can only sit by and watch the chaos. Kinda fun, but also added crazyness of the whole scene. People hanging off the helicopter. See that scene again at the end of the war. The captain reflects on how the enemy doesnt get much USO. Kinda reflects on these are the reasons. Enemy dug in too much moving too fast. And, look at this nonsense. Unorganized mess of mayhem. Dont think i picked that up too much the first times watching this. The mob on stage lol. Its completely ridiculous probably even for USA standards. Like I can think that James Brown concert during riots was nothing like that. Also didnt have 3 playmates at a army base. Death or victory. Talking about the ARVN the next day. Playboys. I think i remember now, they make it to another more hectic base later. Thats maybe when they run into the playmates again. Maybe the boat search next. Hard to say. Surfer got waterskies. Good morning vietnam. Dry your laundry indoors, everyone. the mayor of saigon want you to keep the city beautiful. Its like guaranteed no soldier getting shot at is gonna care about that minor message lol. Irrelevant almost. Meanwhile on the boat crew just having a merry old time. Chief getting a rest, Lawrence slapping hands with the Chief. Chef singing off tune, surfer is water skiing. Listening to rolling stones. Its like a small semblance of normalcy in absolute chaos. Which is neat cause the absolute contrast of war and death coming up. Theres some real character development. They sem like real people with families. Ups and downs. Fears and joys. The Captains sinister narration always brings the film back to focus. Yeh so i like the boat crew they seem real to me. Even though they armed to the teeth they have a sort of innocence. Its realy the locals getting off put. they behind fences, they getting dsturbed doing laundry by the wake of the boat. Cold rice, death, or victory. Its totally morbid.
Movie is a lot to take in and experience so its a work in progress. Im a happy go lucky guy with baseball, I took a dive in the absurdity and abstractness of it all. Where was I surfer was surfing boat crew having a decent time. Thats 2 groups of locals disturbed by the wake, its humourous but the GIs dont mix with the locals . I mean its minor its getting wet or whatever. Its like getting empty can of beer thrown at your head when changing a flat tire its not really necessary. Alternatively fuck the war, and fun comes first. Captain reads a lette from the colonel. Talking about how conscripts, tourists in nam. As long as theres cold beer bbq, rock and roll and all the amenities, Us troops remain debutantes. That a fourth of the force more committed experienced soldiers could win the war in less of the time. Theres that contrast. As the captain munches on a almond hershey bar and licks his fingers. Hell there might aswell be a Macdonalds at the base. The omnipresent colonel Kurtz. Walter E Kurtz is the characters name. Such a great movie and character development the omnipresent Colonel, lives through his letters newspaper clippings. These bastards 2 boats playing chickn and lobbing smoke grenades at each other lol. Its the mega contrast. The bullshit piling up so high you need wings to stay out of it. Burnt the canopy on the boat lol smooth move. Kurtz in October November ambushes then he orders the assasintion of some south Vietnamese army colonels. Ambushes in sector stop. Thats crazy they were spies. Telling vc his moves. Right 4 people. lol thats sinister. Army tried to bring em back. He said no, then thats were the captain comes in. Kurtz gone. All these crazy photos. The captain pretty chill doesnt even freak out on the drumsticks. Specializing in busting my balls. Chief and captain reach a bit of a deal. Getting a bit of tension, its liek yea it Cambodia. You get me close and Im cutting you loose. Seems like they boat past a familiar tree line, like they used it in 2 scenes. That synth sounds like a horror flick. Kurtz get accused of Murder, from the 4 double agents. Thats wild, so I cant really recall all these details since last I saw. I was more interested in other aspects of the movie. I really like the delicate nature of the humanity and complete savagery. Really some deep contrasts. HEs good but he bad. They fun loving but they killers. Its beautiful but its hell. The turmoil and growth in the captains inner dialogue. The fun on the boat to the unknown and horrors. Kurtz talking about how the charges are completely insane, in the context of the war. He did what he was supposed to. Thats so freaking sinister kurtz words to his family as read by capt willard as they boat past the wrecked helicopter still on fire. Theres shit everwhere. One vietnamese kid wering the pilots helmet. Theres a nother mega quote in the letter. I wont recite it cause I know it well and im not really after a reciting the scene by scene and dialogue, rather my interpretations of it. And, my reactions, see if i notice anything of interest to myself. The boat boys arrive at a new forward base in the rain looks completely fucked up. Hey the playboy helicopter. This base more looking like youd expect in vietname muddy rainy falling apart. Omg theres someone chasing a naked troop lol something youd see at a festival on the last.. or first? few days ahaha. Or a rock concert lol. Its the USO guy. The boat crew all wrestling in the rain. Capt like wtf. Lol this is the best scene so far. Couple hours with the bunnies. Fuel so they can prolly fly away. Ok well the huey was kersone the patrol boat diesel . I dunno just making some assumptions. lol. Hes like you just gave away our fuel for a couple hours with the bunnies. Playmate of the month, nah playmate of the year, he says with a grin, and he got his bottle. Thats all the captain cares about in terms of luxuries and pleaures. Definitely diesel fuel. Just so freaking bizzarre. Its like 10x crazier than the concert. The girls talking abou their lives and personality kinda. But theyre known as the playmates. Who reads the articles in the playboy ahhahaah. The birds and the women on the helicpter is just like womesn touch to a war machine another contrast or its an oxymoron almost. Lawrence all on the chopper bangin on the door. Theyre sayin some funy strange things lol. Its funny and shocking at the same time, ew a corpse pops out of the box. The one with the surfer, talking these things how she didnt wanna do. all these fairly traumatic things, the scene aint easy to watch. Yea with lawrence at the window, who are you oh im next mam’. Its liek some nasty ww2 shit. I guess any coveted woman in a warzone desired by many. Probably some of the most brutal shit i wrote about on the blog. All the horror shit has a bit of a humorous gore. This is like a psychological human nightmare. Back on the boat tensions are hot. Meanwhile theres this ominous “last photo” of Kurtz. Its Kurtz too his name in Heart of darkness. Im really curious about the book now. The last photo of Kurtz, darkened visage you cant even see his face. You can see the outline of his marine style haircut. The caption handed up by the ARVN suspected photo of Kurtz. Omnipresent antagonist. His aura dark and mysterious and unknown really. The whole movie is getting closer and closer to kurtz. He just makes appearances from his photo.
Wow someone just liked my comment on the Bruce Springsteen video thats hilarious. Gotta love that Bruce Springsteen all american. I heard he was so touched that Prince showed up at his concert all in disguise. Bruce Springteen heard that Prince went to his concert and he was really touched someone of Princes music caliber chose to come to his show. I just thought that was a cool story. Back in the 80s where creativity blossomed and well it wast all business yet. I was at the store today reading the tabloids, about how Britney Spears got her Dad off the conservator deal, after he blew away her fortune. What an abomination and poor Brittney too. She worked so hard and that sleaze business reared its ugly head. Also shows its sounder to build a foundation off he creativity than the business. Makes me think of Leonard Cohen. Screwed by his friend. What a bummer. 80s will be forever more accepting, and creative. Experimental, vs now the groomed artists. Cept maybe Jackson, could be a groomed artist but not really it was his family biz. I dunno im conflicted. Miley Cyrus too was fam business but its not even comparable to MJ. Not really hating on Miley its just not for me. Are they both pop? Would these people sing for fun or only fame and fortune. All yall records sound the same; Im sick of that fake thug, R&B rap scenario all day on the radio, same scenes in the video, monotonous material.. Anyways here just rambling about britney spears in the apocalypse now lol. You know what else Apocalypse now predicted Musubi rising with that naked dude getting chased by his friend. lol priceless… Aigt I gotta get into the shit now gotta do this boat scene. For whatever reason never liked this scene too much made me uncomfortable. Its liek the captain says skip it, they coulda skipped it but noo, lets watch our characters act inhumane and out-of character almost. The chief is like my boat we doing this. Lawreence just goes off and has a machine gun massacre jesus man. they were protecting a puppy. its like yea lets do some first aid after just unloaded a m60 belt into her. Captain finsihes her off just cold emotionless get this show on the road, what a shit show. That has to be the most brutal scene so far. He told him then they off acting like amateur hour, disobeying orders, trigger happy. Its gruesome. Then willards inner dialogue about lies. Its like some protagonist vs, becoming the antagonist. Yea i mean in that scene those poor vietnamese trying to fish do food things, fmaily or firends. Did they find any weapons grenades outfits. Kinda unnecessary. I get what hes going for in that scene though. Its willard slippin away, fear of becoming, or just unconsiously becoming Kurtz. Willard showed em whose more cold blooded he deemed it necessary though. Nowadays that shit isnt seen so much if so really frowned upon. It wasnt a problem for Kurtz to be charged for murder , for winning the war. I guess his methods just didnt fit with the politics of it all. either way glad the scene over, Its uncomfortable if they coulda jst found something justifiable worth the slaughter. Yeah chef is all fucked up. Hes reliable but going downhill emotionally. willard is also fed up he jst doesnt show it so much. Chief is annoyed the secret ops mission taking him away from routine. Lawrence young guy aint afraid to us that 60. And surfer is in some melancholy state he seems to be losing parts of his humanity unwillingly. They pull up to this bridge last army outpost on the river. Lance is the characters name, he like i was aving tab of acid. Chef is liek whats with you. You dropped acid? Far out. lol the madness continues. He still all camouflaged up. I think it must relate to his character development. His appearance changed. (Lance). Alright well they pull up to he bas tis even more fucked up then the last one. A bunch of GIs with suitcases swarm up to the patrol boat. Creepy sight. They must all be like wtf are we getting ourselves into. Someone flashes for Cat Willard, get that fucking light out of my face. Its like have some fucking flashlight etiquette. Specially nowadays mega torches with some idiot pointing it right in your eye like some cop, its like Im standing less than 5 meters from you. lol. anyways this base seems like a shit show. I never undestood the smoke pack in the band of the helmet neither. I guess it would make sense you could reach and pull one out, or ur not in a firefight got ur helmet off reach for a smoke. if its in your pocket or a pour the smokes get trashed or wet that sucks. Theyd get wet in the helmet band too. Lance wants to go on adventure.. dont you remember the tiger lol,. The bridge is a engineering failure. The VC keep blowing it up each night. The mail delivery and orders runner is just happy to gtfo there. Its like clown music. Looks like the mad carnival. I remember this scene not as bad as the boat. Bunch of black dudes just chillin in the bunker they dont say anything. Some weird ass rock and xmas lights in the background. Well they certainly were more chill the the screaming dude at the entrance of the trench. Says CO in a concrete bunker lol where else would he be. The most protected place. ahaha just like constanza during the fire drill. Lance is just tripping out wide eyed. Maybe they were listening to some jimi hendrix style music. Kinda what it sounded like some grungy electric guitar. Oh man caught me off guard there. That was funny. hahahaha. Ok it all happened so fast. Oh man thats a good laugh. Ok so not sure what happened to the captain. he ends up at tyhe bottom of the trench soaked helmet knocked off. I think he stepped on someone he though was dead and wasnt, thats not the funny part; they (Land and willand) get to the corner of the trench all you see is one guy on the left. The other guy is going off on a fifty cal butterfly gip , i mean like really going off screaming into the distance. Willard asks, what are you shooting at there soldier, He like what the fuck you think im shooting at motherfuckers screaming like a barbarian, then all of a sudden notices the captain bars, he changes his tune right away hes like goes from crazy to all polite explaining theres VC just outside the wire. Foir whatever reason I just find that hilarious, funniets scene in the movie so far to me, he s like oh sir, didnt see your rank lol. Goes from insane to sane in like less than a tenth of second. Outstanding. oh needed a good laugh. PLus willard all just recovering from being tossed in the mud. Fuck that made me laugh. OK the CO is in the bunker called beverly hills thats fitting lol. The black fellas are like aw hell nah. Wuillard gets tossed in the mud. the other one on the left is feeding some big ammo. The ceter guy hes like ” I told you not to fuck with me! You think you so bad huh! ” Really going off psycho style. Willard what are you shooting at soldier: What the fuck you think im shooting at , immmediatly hes like ” Im sorry sir” quick salute lol. “Thers VC out past the wire. But i thnk i killed em all. lol. thats one for the books. Im probably onlyh one that finds that shit funny. Aight moving on lol. U think you bad huh you think you bad huh screaming thats funny to me. Whose in command here, aint you? Thats gotta be fun to hear. I think like harison ford and his little trailer so far from this trench in every way possible. I mean they were having roast beef for fucks sake. Go get the roach. The roach? Its some crazy looking dude with a M79 calmly walks over , shuts the radio off. Tiger stripped M79. Hes like you need a flare, nah. Hes close real close. This is a bad dude lol. Cool as a cucumber. He was sleeping lol. Willard watches on in silence and amazement. One shot. Fuck-em. Thats some colder than samuel L jackson. he says its a drug induced stupor on the internet but its not like theres any actual clues unless its in the script or something. All it says is hes wearing beads and shit, and he wakes up kinda annoyed but sauters over all cool like. I dont see no stupor. Change of scene and a couple of GIs get blown off the bridge. Lawrence freaks out a bit chief tells him to stay cool he be aight. And Lance and willard get back. Bridge collapses as they boat past. Weird music from the score. Past the brdge day time. Emphasis on nature. Mail call. Everyone gets mail cept the captain. He just gets orders. Willard get a creepy new development. Theres was another man on the same mission as him before. He joined up with Kurtz. Army said hes MIA for the family but intercepts a letter he like sell the house sellthe car, sell the kids. Im never coming back. Dude with a football jersey. Captain Colby with kurtz. Chief got a letter with Manson pic front cover. Current movie time events I love that. I wonder what that orange fence translates to. All i can find on the internet is something about puppet governmnt. Maybe its not supposed to mean anything. Its just a visual contrast. The google translate shows, Online; By;
First line Cho Nhan Dan Vietnam .. google translates to give core people vietnam
Next line ..IEn-truc Boi RMK – Bru Duoc cung-cap boi chinh- phu hoa google translates to ; (direct contact by) RMK could be airport australia BRU could be brussels? (Okay) (provided) (by) (conqeror) or (government) thats interesting. Its chopped scenes. its just orange and purple some colors not really seen so much so it really hits the eye.
Anyways Lance going off on the purple smoke grenades, then ambush. maybe some roman candles. Lawrence bought the farm. the whoel crew upset. Even sadder the letter from his mom is playing ion the back. Sad scene. Chief has a US navy patch on oops. Damn chief really took him on as a son and its sad to see him cry. Laughing before now its sad. The guy just a kid right. Kid with a machine gun sent to do some dirty business. And, that ambush was really close up. I guess in the navy patrol boat, you can only get as far away of the shore as possible. Its a loss for the crew. Its not like was on the innocent farm boat all movie, before the americans show up. Its like as a viewer you are on the boat and with the crew. lance looking for the dog after the fire fight and then, next scene another weird contrast of green, and blue. green smoke, blue dusk and clouds. Its weird an aire of pestilence. You feel sad for the mom on the tape speaking to the void. No wife but the mom was kind enough to send a message on the tape. Chief knows its going up river the risk so you wonder how much resentment he’ll have to the captain. Capt aint fuckin around neither. So its like yhou wanna rock and roll, better be ready for an ambush still. Some just not treating it like a warzone , just like Kurtz thought. Ew they drive past some bodies burning. And , a jet crashed in the river. Thats many fuselages stuck and burning in the river, like this movie is $$. Im sure they did their best with props but how do you plant a burning helicopter in the trees, jet fuselage in the river. Its really distressing to see pop out of the fog right before your eyes. The captain has to lower the mast and they litterally go under the tail. Thats crazy. More fog and low visibility. Theres not much talking since Lawrence left the team. They arrve at some weird built up area. Capt gets the binos. They pull in for a closer look. Its wreckage. It may have been a docking zone but iots busted up smoldering, abandoned. Theres a Renault oil sign. French. I hear drop ur weapons leave ur weapons. Theyre frenc they kinda surround em Chief speaks a bit of french New orleans. Just weird cause the french are supposed to have left long time ago but not this group. Funny how chief just drops his weapon cause some voice in the mist tells him to. Looks like some vietnamese. Weird the french guy has a leader, had that plantation for 70 years, and they have a parade to bury lawrence. Chief has a tear. His Navy dress cap. Theres a woman overlooking in the tower. Fold up this rags of a flag. Burry him with a few things the tape recorder. This movie took 2 years to edit can you believe that. So strange. So now theyre in france or as close as they gonna get to France in this. Wine sauces. Chef is really excited. theyre all cleaned up too.
Like how could this get any weirder. Hpw about a mega dinner party lol, why not. I mean the guys plantation been there for 70 yrs is a long time so it pays homage to the past, this movie has it alll. Goes off about why dont you go back to france, and yea thats a whole can of worms. I cant tell if theyre disillusioned and, or they have a nice plantation home they just want to stay at. I guess for me its a little mystical but whatever boat crew at the dinner party. Proxy wars and communism. Wow cracks an egg says the white leaves and the yellow stays. Its like who thought of this. Crazy. Anyways all these hot tensions cause he asked why dont you go back to France.THey have their own little ecosystem going on . Its just so much political banter going on and the whole histroy of france in like 10 seconds. Ive been to some of those cemetaries in france alot of people died I mean like as far as you can see. Definitely a touchy subject. Oh yea I should mention the obvious love interest . Because why not throw a love interest in the mix theyre at the officers table though. Lance and Chef arent there talking about politics. And Willard is like hes the one that represents all of USA. Well everyone knows the French were defeated proxy war, and I guess i know of it but not all the details. Its like gentlemen discussing battle plans. Its a scene a good one too lots of people of all types , huge contrast from the jungle. The woman smokes a cigar. Thats kinda hot. So yea the plantation history the had brought over rubber from Brazil to vietnam to make it grow make something of nothing, thats really what it is. Industrialism. Plantations just have all sorts of bad vibes sometimes. Lol its just the two of em left together. how romantic. Shes a widower. Very 1800s weird house.Im happy for the captain she brings up a good point that hes the same as them, your home is here. Thats a ominous concept. Your home is hell, but since the beginning willard wanted to be in the jungle. wow then they smoke opium or thats whats it looks like. Right on captain crazy just takes a huge rip of opium. i guess thats how you live in the jungle with some mosquito netting. Hallucinations. Kurtz . Hes close. Damn so much happening ; they run into some locals throwing sticks or something chief gets a spear through him. Then there were three. Chief wasnt too happy about dying thats all i can say, gruesome. total face to face with death. Damn the chief floats away small ceremony by Lance. Chef is freaking out, he though the mission was to blow up some bridge. But , no theyre after another GI. Chef talks himself into following the mission Really the more up river they go the more bizzare it gets. Cant tell if its night or day.
Desire to confront Kurtz. Lance all trippin out still for days it seems lol. Hes like interpretive dancing. They end up at some river flottila. Hundreds of people in that scene. The Photojournalist. Him Colonel Kurtz. This guy is nuts for Kurtz. This guy has a larger than life and hundreds of bodies and people on set. Just so weird. and theres te captain previous captain. Theres just bodies everywhere. Some interesting stone structures. Theyre waiting for him. The mud and muck its nasty. Willard gets taken prisoner. Smells of malaria. Out of no where he asks where you from. Kurtz. THe man of the hour. The omnipresent man, heard his voice a couple times on the tape. Htey talk about Ohio and rivers, Kurtz went down that river as a kid. He looks like a hot mess, old bald, sweaty. Still hes Colonel Kurtz. The bodies and stench of pungent death is present. Hes talking about a island it had flowers must be wild and overgrown by now. He looks ghasthly and he knows it. Hes like Do you know why they want to terminate my command. Totally insane. Im getting a picture of the Kurtz on the cellphone, well its been so many days dont wanna forget this moment. Kurtz youve gone insane and your methods are unsound. Hes the lord of death. This movie is completly self aware, the classified is out the window, kurtz asks him flat out what did you expect.Kurtz just drops the coldest shit, he says, you an assasin? Nah im a soldier; youre neither, your an errand boy sent by grocery clerks to collect a bill. HTNis place is the temple of death foreal. lol The far our photo journalist are there still characters like that is there still kurt russell charaters too. The photojournalist is the liason, he tells the story cause how else could it. SHit just got so real I forgot about chef and Lance in the boat. Photojournalist is a strange character, hes like a bystander, a civy, itas all poetry and hidden meanings or simple meanings . Its really a fantasy movie at this point. Still not quite sure whats gonna happen. Well thats ominous hes got radio contact with the overwatch. Kurtz is just a scary looking dude. Oh shit its the chefs head. Gross. Seriously sick. I guess he got him for going on the radio. eyes looking at him. Kurtz looks like the craziest character in any movie ever! I cant really put it together its like a series of tortures or trial Willards goota go through. 1967. Yea just a couple comments. After that wild barbaric display, he rolls up in some fresh pjs sporting a time magazine. Hes gonna read to him. After all that death he surrounded by children very bizzare. Very gentleman like too. Experts.. That word is thrown around a little too much. He quotes the time magazine hes like how do things smell soldier? He lets him go. After saying a few words and soime basic rules. Dont lose the magazine clippings. Not like he gets much air mail i suppose. Then Willard and Kurtz have a date for later to discuss. Well Kurtz has the advantage, He must be trying to recruit him otherwise why would he let up a bit. One step out he passes out. Gets dragged to another gets brought back to life slowly. Food slowly as kurtz watches from a smokey background. Catches a fly then lets it go. Hes reading from a book. Ok comic relief thats why the photojournalist there. Cant land a space ship on a fraction. Those old stone carvings wildest set ever. Kurtz like discusses how willard can kill him but he cant judge him. He says it coool like. I think Kurtz wants him to do the job. And , willard he says A man broken apart from them and then himself. Horror and mortal terror are you friend, if not they are enemies to be feared. Sorry Kurtz! had to make myself a bagel. Maybe send me some water in a little cup to drink thru bamboo cage. lol. This is it the finale. Im sad its coming to an end. Whose the better character willard or Kurtz, thats a tough choice. Im gonna go with Kurtz, just the wildest larger than life character with a cult following. Sinister serious scary. Willards just an errand boy sent by grocery clerks. Oh god. The polio vaccinne story and the pile of arms, im sorry everyone this just the goriest shit but gotta get through it. Thats just a horrible story his words are rated R or rated X for hardcore disgusting. But thats his character the most savage shit. Killing without prejudice . Judgement. the judgement defeats the killers. ends the speech with how he like his son to kno what he did everything that willard saw, So i guess hes accepted willard is the one to kill him. Is there any other way out but death for the kurtz doesnt look like it. Willard got a new mission now. And the cow party. Another carnage the killing of the water buffalo. The twist of the story Kurtz wants willard to do it. Nartin sheen and that crazy come out of the water scene. Its very ceremonial both the water buffalo. Drop fire on em but cant write fuck on the airplane cause its obscene. Its hard to watch seriously. with the doors playing in the background probably the most hardcore finale ever in any movie ever. You gotta feel sad for Kurtz. And the cow. But with that Kill Willard can move on and the rest of the group get a big feast. Visceral and gross and close up. Willard sits behind the typewriter. Somehow everyone knows the deeds been done. Couple hundred in this scene no doubt. Close up and with a axe. He gets the papers and proceeds out. No one says a word to the captain as he walks out. Takes Lance by the hand like a small remnant of humanity. PBR street gang. Just 2 of em left on the boat now. The horror. The horror. Word thats haunt willard foreever. Im sure willard went back to the guys house to scare his kid too lol. I dunno what can I say Bravo. Most hardcore shit ever. Very unpalatable and weird. That woulda sucked to be in Nam. As far as the acting 10/10 The sets amazing the effects amazing. Its a freaking masterpiece. Marlon Brando like wtf. Unreal.. Probably wont watch an epic one like that on the blog for a while that was intense. Like after im gonna watch the making of.. and im sure ill knock this into 10k plus words no problem. My impressions is fuck that movie is hardcore. I must have missed alot of It watching it the first few times, this time I really got into it.
