  •  I enjoyed "Me and Orson Welles." (3+ / 0-)

      ....Apocalypse Now, the original and the recut version?  I saw both, many years apart, as well as Hearts of Darkness, the documentary about the making of AN.  I can't remember if I've seen Kramer vs. Kramer, but I have some vague memories.

        it was in the theaters.  Same re:  Killing Fields, Platoon, and Deer Hunter.  My prep for going to Vietnam and Cambodia.  My library doesn't have Hearts of Darkness, which I also wanted to see.

          ....and seeing the analogies to "Mess-o-potamia", namely, clueless bomb-happy "Amurrikans" strafing their way into a land they know nothing about.
