High level: Sober (1/5)

I have seen Apocalypse Now many times, in various states of soberness. And in my opinion, it's an absolute masterpiece. Visually jawdropping and with a thought-provoking script, it well deserves it's status as one of the all time greats.

If you haven't seen it yet, prepare to be blown away...this movie is a far cry from the trailer-cut popcorn flicks of the 2010's but it's the kind of movie you'll remember for the rest of your life.
