** Happens metaphorically with Col. Kilgore. After firebombing a village, which resulted in a furious fight in which several Americans and countless Vietnamese were killed and a helicopter was lost, all for the sake of clearing up a beach to surf on (and after poetically professing his love for the naplam used to do so!), Kilgore discovers that the naplam fires have heated up the air so that the waves have died out... [[CloudCuckooLander Of course, being himself, he's mostly pissed about not getting to surf.]]

* HiddenDepths: Deconstructed with the playmates. Beneath the first impression of being a couple of pretty, braindead bimbos, one of them shows true enthusiasm for ornithology and the other has a deeply complicated and troubled personality... None of which the soldiers care about, as they're so tired, desperate and horny they'd much rather let the playmates babble about their lives while they dispassionately have sex with them.

Containing many famous scenes and quotes, most notably "I love the smell of napalm in the morning", "Charlie don't surf" and the climax ("The horror... the horror...") involving the slaughter of a real water buffalo, this movie at times feels like what one might imagine a bad acid trip to be like. Considered the definitive anti-war movie by many, ''Apocalypse Now'' is also one of the all-time greats. The AFI placed it #28 and #30 on the 1998 and 2007 versions of their 100 Years...100 Movies list, and #12 on their 100 Quotes list (for "I love the smell of napalm in the morning."). It is also legendary for having what is considered to be one of the most {{troubled production}}s in Hollywood history. To describe all of the mishaps that occurred on set would require an entire page, to the point where the film's nightmarish production was documented by Coppola's wife Eleanor, who would later use footage she shot on set to make the 90 minutes long documentary ''Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse.'' The highlights can be read on the [[Trivia/ApocalypseNow Trivia section]].

'''''Apocalypse Now''''' is a very loose adaptation of the classic Joseph Conrad novella ''Literature/HeartOfDarkness'', transporting the events of that book to 1969 Vietnam and Cambodia. The film took three years to complete before its 1979 release. It was directed by Creator/FrancisFordCoppola at the [[AuteurLicense height of his career]].

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: The photographer shows up looking like Charles Manson, which is probably intentional, but the character is also based upon legendary (and [[BunnyEarsLawyer eccentric]]) war photographer Tim Page, author of the photobook ''Nam''.

* NukeEm: Once Willard completes his assignment -- killing Kurtz -- his eye catches one of Kurtz' type-written memos, where he reads ''"Drop the Bomb - Exterminate Them All!"'' scrawled in red ink.
