The Film ‘89 Podcast Episode 26 – Into the Heart of Darkness – The 40th Anniversary of Apocalypse Now (1979).

In Episode 26 of The Film ’89 Podcast we’re joined by a very special guest host, from Comix Connection in Pennsylvania, he’s a frequent guest on esteemed Podcasts such as Wrong Reel and Hellbent for Horror to name but two and is a hugely knowledgeable cinephile and all-round top chap, it’s Mr John Arminio. John joins us to celebrate the 40th anniversary of director Francis Ford Coppola’s Vietnam War epic, Apocalypse Now.

Not only is Apocalypse Now one the most highly regarded war films ever made, it’s widely considered to be one of the greatest films of the 1970’s. John and Skye go in-depth to analyse the film, discuss it’s insanely troubled and extended shoot which led to the superb 1991 making-of documentary, Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse which chronicles the infamous production woes of this classic film which was re-released in a much longer cut in 2001. Known as Apocalypse Now Redux, this longer version is also examined in detail.
