366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 104


The Date: January 12

The Movie: Apocalypse Now (1979)

What Is It?: Francis Ford Coppola adapts Heart of Darkness as a Vietnam War movie and a demented and immersive metaphor for the insanity of the war, itself. He gives himself and his film crew a taste of that insanity too.

Why Today?: On this day in 1962, Operation Chopper, the first American combat mission in Vietnam, takes place.
