Apocalypse Now: Final Cut
This fascinating investigation into the 1953 Anglo-American coup d’état in Iran that displaced democratically elected Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh and installed the despotic Mohammad Reza Pahlavi as shah is “passionate and fearless” (Hollywood Reporter).
This version of Apocalypse Now, prepared for the fortieth anniversary of Francis Ford Coppola’s Vietnam War saga, “is, in terms of storytelling and scope, a completely different trip up the river, through your acid-fried skull, and into the heart of darkness” (Rolling Stone).
