Apocalypse Now

Es otro cine, del que ya no se hace.

Si soy sincero, me daba un poco de cosa hacer una crítica sobre esta película. De hecho no la iba a hacer, pero siguiendo con la filosofía de ir sumando cualquier opinión, sea la que sea, y de aquí un par de años (si no he muerto antes) encontrarme con un bonito archivo de cine, el esfuerzo habrá merecido la pena.

Ante obras de tal calibre, como puede ser esta, me siento como un cirujano operando sin guantes o un niño de 5 años, no superdotado, haciendo una raíz cuadrada. Cualquier cosa que pueda opinar podrá generar en mí esa sensación de no saber nada, y hacerme callar ante una frase de los más viejos.

 

Asumiendo esa responsabilidad, empiezo diciendo que películas como estas ya no se hacen. Creo que en esta época, si se propusiera algo así, harían una serie, y además creo que aunque se perdiera gran parte de la magia que aporta al cine esta histórica obra, sería más adecuado.

 

Las mentes actuales esperan otro cine, con más punch visual, con menos temple, con más velocidad. Reconozco que soy parte de esa generación, lamentablemente para mi, a la que le cuesta seguir con garra más de tres horas de cine antiguo o de hace más de veinte años.

 

Apocalypse Now, nos cuenta la guerra, bajo la historia de un soldado que debe adentrarse en lo más recóndito de Vietnam para encontrar a un supuesto traidor. Al final, eso es lo de menos, vemos en varias etapas, y a medida que la pequeña cuadrilla bélica remonta el rio, un cúmulo de situaciones de guerra, que en su suma final nos generan una sensación poderosa, muy cercana a la realidad.

 

La película tiene una pausa brillante, como el que cuenta una historia intercalando caladas de un duradero cigarro, sabiéndose sabio. Al final queda esa sensación de mensaje claro y duradero, de haberse vaciado en él, de gran relato.

 

Si algo tiene el cine de Coppola es eso, libertad total máxima, para crear un ecosistema brutal, en el que todo tiene cabida, y en el que no debe dejarse nada en el tintero. Todo tiene su momento, él lo sabe, y construye el puzzle talentosamente.

 

Como habéis podido comprobar, en esta ocasión ni hay estrellas, ni hay número. Ni me atrevo, ni lo encuentro adecuado, al fin y al cabo, como el que ve la final del Mundial del 62 en la que Pelé no parece mejor que Afellay, cada cosa en su momento y en su contexto.

    No deis nunca, nunca, nunca, por muerto al Madrid. Es un eipuqo que triplica al Bare7a en Copas de Europa y lo dobla en Ligas. Esto es una realidad. Sf3lo con eso nuestro orgullo es infinito. Estamos
    hablando del mejor quipo del mundo en los 2 faltimos af1os (Bare7a), contra el mejor eipuqo de la historia (107 af1os). Hablando de nfameros, y no de opiniones (que como deceda Clint Eastwood, son
    como los culos).Dicho esto, felicidades por conseguir la excelencia.Volveremos

    Mary from United Kingdom, October 29, 2012 at 6:47 PM The site itself is fantastic. There is so much to do with a huge selection of pools, tennis courts, basketball courts etc. It is right on the
    edge of the lake and only a 20 walk into Peschiera del Garda town. The on-site facilities are great which include a supermarket, greengrocers, cafe and restaurants, sports bar and ice cream parlour
    which we used most days. The Terraza restaurant overlooking the lake served excellent pizzas at a good price. There are plenty of facilities for children, with a little funfair which is open in the
    evenings and entertainment put on for them every night by the main pool area. Peschiera is only a short bus or train ride away from Verona. We travelled there for a day by bus (very busy) but the
    stop is right outside the Bella Italia entrance, and very reasonably priced. You can buy tickets on the bus but this is generally frowned upon so I would buy beforehand, and we got ours for the
    on-site Tobacconist. Peschiera del Garda is also only 1.5 hours by train away from Venice. On both visits I have found the trains to be very punctual and reasonably priced, but if you use these don’t
    forget to validate your ticket before you get on the train, the same goes for the buses. Gardaland and the Sealife Centre were also easily reachable with a free bus from Peschiera del Garda Train
    Station. We haven’t visited Gardaland but did visit the Sealife centre which my son loved. The only thing that disappointed me was that buggies aren’t allowed inside so we had to
    carry our son the whole time. On both trips to Peschiera del Garda my husband and I have hired one of the speed boats for an hour on the lake, I would highly recommend it’s the most fun
    I’ve ever had! We have also used the ferry to visit some of the towns north of Peschiera del Garda, I would recommend a trip to Lazise, Sirmione and Garda. All in all I would 100% recommend
    a holiday at Camping Bella Italia and we plan to make a third trip back there in the next few years.

    Criss from Romania, October 19, 2012 at 9:51 PM We spent a week at the end of September beginning of October. Is an excellent place to base out around the lake especially if the weather is bad, we
    visited by car: Verona, Sirmione, Peschiera del Garda, Garda … also until Peschiera del Garda are about 20 minutes walk easily on a beautiful alley on the lake. Last 4 days was 26-27
    Celsius warm and we enjoyed the pool area, ideal for children. We were accommodated in villas tip Lavanda upstairs with balcony, pretty small but clean, tastefully and equipped with everything you
    need. All the camping is very clean, quiet and guarded. I must say the thing that made ​​our doughter very happy: mini disco every night and how fun dealt with children a very pretty blonde lady.
    Many playgrounds are designed for children, some with money and other free. Mention pizza and ice cream eaten campsite and set of swans and wild ducks at the lake out doors, feeding swans as favorite
    occupation of our daughter Sofia. We felt good, we liked and want to return in next years ! Grazie Camping Bella Italia !

    Melanie from USA, October 15, 2012 at 9:53 PM The site is huge but we had a very central location to the pools, restaurants and the lake. We stayed in a 3 bedmobile home which was very clean and
    adequate. This site is in an excellent location with a short walks into Peschiera del Garda along the lake. Lots of facilities for the 3 year old swimming pools, slides, play areas with bouncy
    castles he had a great time. We would definately return.

    Christina from Denmark, July 27, 2012 at 12:10 PM The location of Camping Bella Italia is wonderfull, easy to reach, it just 225 km south of Austrian. There is plenty of things you can do in the camp
    site – lots of good stuff for the kids and adults. Not fare from the train station where you go to Milano or Venice. The highway is nearby to.

    Nightmare: project statementListening to the sound project I chose, without influences from the previous project description I went on my own tangent. These images are arranged in sequence to tell a
    story of a girl having a distorted nightmare with contrast between good and evil throughout seen with the use of light playful photos to dark, quick moving and saturated images. Daze, wonder,
    struggle, demands and fear are the themes of my cine-roman project, heavily influenced by Bill Viola scenes and characters within his work exploring the threshold between life and death. I aimed to
    encapsulate the meaning within every single image through my characters body language and facial expressions. Passing of time was shown by the speed of the frames. Unfortunately composition and
    framing was heavily affected by the resizing of every image, as they would not fit into premiere.
