* Another meta-version - if you watch the behind-the-scenes documentary, the fact that Coppola managed to finish the movie at all, much less make one of the most iconic movies of all time, is nothing short of a miracle. Whether or not this should be considered awesome, considering the torture that not just Coppola, but the entire cast went through, is debatable.

* A meta-version of Awesome for Robert Duvall, for his delivery of the "[[MemeticMutation I love the smell of napalm]] in the morning" monologue. Actors ''kill'' to get dialogue like that.

* The entire introduction of the Air Calvary counts as one for ''filmmaking''. Every shot has dozens of moving parts, with helicopters buzzing, landing, taking off, soldiers moving, talking and fighting, civilians evacuating, tanks spraying fire, journalists poking through the ruins, vehicles rumbling ashore or being loaded with civilians, all while actors move and talk in long, barely interrupted tracking shots. The audio mixing alone is a work of pure art, with each audio setpiece (the medics, the flamethrower, the radioman, the translated announcer and the preacher) seamlessly blending into one another under the dialog and accompanied by the constant drone of the choppers. Seeing and hearing it in motion is almost unbelievable, especially knowing it was made and mixed before computers.
