    One of my favorite scenes in the film. I always wondered if the scene was scripted with the kids jumping around and just sort of playing while Brando was reading to Sheen. Or did the director tell Brando “You read” and tell the kids “just play”.

    It’s impossible for words to describe what is necessary to those who do not know what horror means. Horror… Horror has a face… and you must make a friend of horror. Horror and moral terror are your friends. If they are not, then they are enemies to be feared. They are truly enemies!

    Ride of the Valkyries scene is one of the best, most badass scenes in cinema history.

    First annual reminder that Joseph Conrad’s prose style sucks dick.

    The kid in front really learnt from Marlon Brando’s shadow scene.

    Really the only comparison with Heart of Darkness is that a man is sent up a river to kill another man. Maybe inspired by?

    Imagery is right out of Dispatches by Michael Herr.
