Day 2, No. 2. Colonel Kurtz

HAIRCUT 100: Day 2, No. 2. Marlon Brando as Colonel Kurtz.HAIRCUT 100: Day 2, No. 2. Marlon Brando as Colonel Kurtz in Francis Ford Coppola’s epic re-imagining of Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, Apocalypse Now (1979). He gazed into the abyss, and the abyss gazed back! A blistering performance from the master of the method in one of the greatest movies of all time, updating the novel that defined the twentieth century and inaugurated literary modernism:

‘I saw on that ivory face the expression of sombre pride, of ruthless power, of craven terror—of an intense and hopeless despair. Did he live his life again in every detail of desire, temptation, and surrender during that supreme moment of complete knowledge? He cried in a whisper at some image, at some vision,—he cried out twice, a cry that was no more than a breath—

“The horror! The horror!”’
