Coppola almost killed himself making that movie. And Sheen pretty much had a complete nervous breakdown.

Love Drive. Watch it a dozen times and you'll keep finding new stuff. The elevator scene was inspired by Irreversible.

Yeah it was my first time. Kind of glad I waited this long. Felt like I was watching a boat travel down an art exhibit of terror. Just surreal.

you really should watch the documentary...Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

it really shows just how much pain went into making such a perfect and beautiful film

I know this is not the video games thread, but since you're discussing Apocalypse now..
The latest humble bundle includes a game called Spec Ops: the line. For 1$. If you want to take part in a very similar story (set in a ruined Dubai after an epic sandstorm cut it off from the world), get it. You will not regret it.

Working my way through PsychologyJunkie.com's list of THE TOP 25 FAVORITE INTJ MOVIES

Today's first time viewing - The Big Lebowski.

If anyone had told me that a scene would feature Moondog's "Stamping Ground" from Moondog (1969), I would have watched it ages ago!

You should have just checked it out ages ago because it's a classic.

Ah - a bit of contextual clarification - I spent the 90s in the hospital system with no exposure to television, music, or cinema. I was able to pick up our town college station on my boom box by using my body as an antenna, but the steel in the walls blocked most signals.

Only hospital-sanctioned creative works were permitted, and foul language was contraband. It's like the 90s never happened.

I'm doing my best to fill the gaps now. I still haven't seen E.T., Ghostbusters II, Close Encounters, Jaws, Dazed and Confused, Almost Famous, Terminator, Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Poltergeist, Hellraiser, Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, Goodfellas, Rocky, Scarface, Reservoir Dogs, Boondock Saints, Animal House, National Lampoon, Godfather, or Total Recall

You can skip Ghostbusters II, but the rest you need to get on asap.
