  • Apocalypse Now [Blu-ray] [1979] Apocalypse Now | Blu Ray | (13/06/2011) from £18.50  |  Saving you £9.57 (31.90%)  |  RRP £29.99

    In the tradition of such obsessively driven directors as Erich von Stroheim and Werner Herzog, Francis Ford Coppola approached the production of Apocalypse Now as if it was his own epic mission into the heart of darkness. On location in the storm-ravaged Philippines, he quite literally went mad as the project threatened to devour him in a vortex of creative despair but from this insanity came one of the greatest films ever made. It began as a John Milius screenplay, transposing Joseph Conrad's classic story "Heart of Darkness" into the horrors of the Vietnam War, following a battle-weary Captain Willard (Martin Sheen) on a secret upriver mission to find and execute the renegade Colonel Kurtz(Marlon Brando), who has reverted to a state of murderous and mystical insanity. The journey is fraught with danger involving war-time action on epic and intimate scales. One measure of the film's awesome visceral impact is the number of sequences, images and lines of dialogue that have literally burned themselves into our cinematic consciousness, from the Wagnerian strike of helicopter gunships on a Vietnamese village to the brutal murder of stowaways and the unflinching fearlessness of the surfing warrior Lieutenant Colonel Kilgore (Robert Duvall), who speaks lovingly of "the smell of napalm in the morning." Like Herzog's Aguirre: The Wrath of God, this film is the product of genius cast into a pit of hell and emerging, phoenix-like, in triumph. Coppola's obsession (effectively detailed in the riveting documentary Hearts of Darkness, directed by Coppola's wife, Eleanor) informs every scene and every frame, and the result is a film for the ages. --Jeff Shannon

Antonio and his son take to the streets in a desperate search to find the bicycle which will keep them away from poverty and humiliation but amidst a sea of bicycles and without proof the search is fruitless.

The story follows the young Biggie (portrayed by Wallace's real-life son Christopher Jordan Wallace as a youngster and Brooklyn rapper Jamal Woolard as an adult) from his surprising youth as a Catholic school honour student whose proud mother (Angel Bassett) tries to keep him off the street corners to his years as a tough teenage drug dealer and then to his life-changing move into young fatherhood as his girlfriend Jan (Julia Pace Mitchell) gives birth to his daughter prompting him to go on a mission to provide for his child by any means - legal or not. But everything changes when a freestyle rap tape that Biggie created just for fun ends up with B.I.G. Daddy Kane's DJ Mister Cee (Edwin Freeman) and eventually in the hands of ambitious rap impressario Sean Puffy Combs (Derek Luke) whose marketing savvy and production genius transform Biggie into a cultural sensation almost overnight. Now with his career taking off into superstar territory Biggie finds himself with mo' money mo' problems and is under all kinds of new pressures. His managers Wayne Barrow (C. Malik Whitfield) and Mark Pitts (Kevin Phillip) attempt to keep the young man's feet on the ground and mind in the studio as he juggles the demands of recording fatherhood and marriage to fellow Bad Boy artist Faith Evans (Antonique Smith) not to mention his complicated friendship with fellow Junior M.A.F.I.A. member Kimberly Lil' Kim Jones (Naturi Naughton) and the increasingly heated rivalry with West Coast rapper Tupac Shakur (Anthony Mackie). But just as Biggie starts to come into true manhood and solidify his musical legacy as the true creator of one of hip-hop's gretest bodies of work fate has other plans.
