Excellent movie. Human morality doesn't always fit into a black or white pigeonhole. Coppola reflected that fact well in this movie. Recommend as a timeless movie on the complexity of war.

The odyssey of a US Army assassin sent into Cambodia to kill a "rouge" Army Officer (COL. Kurtz). Set in the Vietnam war, the film questions the morality of killing, and the concept of justified killing. The rouge Col. left the chain of military command to peruse the war independently and aggressively. For this he was deemed insane, (and a murderer) by military commanders and was marked for assassination. As the soldier sent to kill him got closer to the COL., he sees elements of himself in him. The assassination as a transaction of death meant to restore the "civilization" of the chain of command, restores a different order altogether. An order of nature, a young warrior replacing the old through violence.

"You smell that?" "That smell" "I love the smell of napalm in the morning" I've seen this film before on my V.C.R in "Dolby Surround Sound" and finally decided to buy the "Complete Dossier" version on DVD. Being a gentleman that loves sound, i was thoroughly pleased with this version. Since i had never seen the full length version before, i was eager to watch it with my friend. In it, you get the full length version that includes my favorite "Playboy Bunny scene." What truly turned me on about this particular scene is the rain. I was not expecting my friend to react the way she did while watching this. The rain in this scene seem so convincing, that my friend looked at my window thinking it was raining. The sound engineers did an excellent job with the audio. This film is 'Sound Freak" worthy. They also did an excellent job with the visuals. One other scene that i liked was the beginning. Listen to the sound of the circling helicopter as it travels from one speaker to another in a 360 degree pattern that's OFF THE HOOK!!!!!! But this materpiece of a movie has many scenes that are filled with great sounds and very nice visuals. Let's not forget the story. Completely Insane!!! I'm giving this masterpeice 5 stars!!!!!! Excellent sound, clear visuals, an insane story, and crazy characters. Chicken parmasean hero, Pepperidge Farm "Milano Double Chocolate" cookies, and milk.
