Apocalypse Now … I personally enjoyed this movie for being realistic. It shows the craziness of the war, the power structure, the society’s view of females, and the nature of human beings. It seems realistic because of the way people fires guns and bombs towards innocent people as if it is a game. Calmness of the Americans in the middle of the gun shots shows the pride in those who have power. The dancing and sexual scene of women shows how women are commercialised as fulfillments of men’s sexual desires. Parts where Americans are shown as nature in human beings is when they suffer from the trauma of the war; and also the part where movie director encourages soldiers to make action in the middle of the battle, which shows the egotistical part of human beings. Unlike Heart of Darkness, where the director was influenced by, the movie didn’t seem to be racial. Maybe it is because it shows the reality of war in general rather than focusing on one particular topic. Or maybe because I was analyzing the soldiers while watching the movie. It is interesting how they were not able to complain about their traumatic situation of killing people, but at the same time, they did not seem to feel guilty of their actions. Anyhow, overall, I don’t have much to say about this movie because it just seems like a documentary. What more can I say? those who were inferior were out of focus, which is the reality of a war.
