FUSE 25.1: Spring 2001

Last summer, before the events of September 11, Francis Coppola’s famous film about the Vietnam war, Apocalypse Now, was re-released. Despite its confused and often offensive politics, the film has a quality that is rare among American war pictures. This is not simply because it is a war film played as a horror movie. It is that what we fear throughout the film is not so much what will happen to the central characters, but what terrible things they might do and become.
