#Trivia: Ο Μάρλον Μπράντο πληρώθηκε 1 εκατομμύριο δολάρια προκαταβολικά. Απείλησε να παραιτηθεί και να κρατήσει την προέλαση. Ο Φράνσις Φορντ Κόπολα είπε στον ατζέντη του ότι δεν τον ένοιαζε και αν δεν μπορούσαν να πάρουν τον Μπράντο, θα δοκίμαζαν τον Τζακ Νίκολσον, τον Ρόμπερτ Ρέντφορντ ή τον Αλ Πατσίνο. Ο Μπράντο τελικά εμφανίστηκε αργά, μεθυσμένος και περίπου 88 λίβρες (40 κιλά) υπέρβαρος. Παραδέχτηκε ότι δεν είχε διαβάσει το σενάριο ή το «Heart of Darkness». Διάβασε το σενάριο του Κόπολα και αρνήθηκε να το κάνει. Μετά από αρκετές ημέρες διαφωνιών για μεμονωμένες γραμμές διαλόγου, ο Κόπολα συμφώνησε σε ένα σενάριο τύπου ad-lib, με τον Μπράντο να κινηματογραφείται κυρίως σε σκιές. 🎞️ Apocalypse Now (1979) 🎥 Σκην. Φράνσις Φορντ Κόπολα
What the casuals dont understand is that Marlon brando interms of talent and technique was the michael jordan of film acting; he was a genius progedy; if you understand that he was an acting giant; and that other actors stood on his shoulders when it came to talent and technique; then a guy like Brando could had easily not taken acting seriously in his later years; cash in on his reputation; and still deliver academy award performances despite not taking acting seriously anymore; and noth bothering memorising the lines. Very few actors can get away with of not taking acting seriously in there later years; but Brando’s genius was so great; that he was one of the very few actors who can get away with of not preparing for a film script and still pull off an academy award performances. 🎥🎬🎭
Fat bastards will do what they do. Pathetic and sad.
Actors are such drama queens none of em I am starstruck over
And it was his last great role
Love this movie!
Brando understood and read everything on Colonel Kurtz’s bookcase He transcended all of it.Modern man in search of meaning looks to his primitive past and finds it,savagely beautiful and compelling but utterly overwhelming.The dilemma each of us is in every day.Finding the balance,finding our own truth as misshapen and horrific as it truly is,ultimately embracing it all in total grace and madness
Brando as Cel. Kurtz is irreplaceable. No one could match him.
Those shadow scenes and the ad lib dialogue are what made the film so mysterious and outstanding .
He also refused to be in a same shot with Dennis Hopper after thinking he was critiquing￼ his for not reading Heart Of Darkness. That’s why you don’t them together. I think Brando works better then Sheen did but I wouldn’t hire that kind of loose cannon ￼uncertainly.
Now you see there are plenty of people who can mimick his voice and plenty who look like him
I would have used them Brando was a jerk and a terrible actor
I re-watched this film a couple months ago and still can’t get it outta my head, especially Brando’s scenes.
And I love the smell of bullshit in the morning.
this will be De Caprio in fifty years
What a troublemaker
Marlon Brando still did an amazing job, his voice and the scene at the end was incredible.
Alec Loftus 🤣🤣
Its not just Brando. There was a madness the was tolerated in Hollywood, creating some truly unparalleled moments in acting. Most of the greatest actors, would be blacklisted as a insurance liability in today’s Hollywood.
And they went on to make a masterpiece.
The movie is overrated
Jack Nicholson could do a remake, possibly! Redford, or Pacino? No way!
The horror,,,, the horror
I bet all the negative comments about Marlon Brando here come from high-achieving people and Oscar winners or people who never did anything wrong in their life… 🙄
Directors were willing to put up with Brando’s eccentricities because they knew what wound up on the screen was usually magic. This is the same Brando who didn’t memorize lines during The Godfather-other actors wore cue cards that Brando read. Coppola certainly knew what he was in for. He also knew that all eyes would be on Brando if for no other reason than curiosity. He was Brando.
