Apocalypse Now

New on Video: ‘The Conformist’

What makes this an exciting release goes beyond the look of the picture (though that is paramount). This is, in every regard, one of the greatest films ever made.

‘Spec Ops: The Line’ tells a conflicted tale

Drawing inspiration from Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, as well as the Francis Ford Coppola adaptation Apocalypse Now, Spec Ops: The Line tells of a three-man Delta Force team sent into a Dubai decimated by sandstorms, tasked with tracking down rogue Colonel John Konrad and his 33rd Infantry. Having disobeyed a direct order to abandon Dubai, Konrad and his men remained to provide aid to the remaining population. Their last transmission repeats on an endless loop: “Attempted evacuation of Dubai ended in complete failure. Death toll: too many.” So far, so Call of Duty.
