a: Apocalypse now ~
b: a lucid dream

What: "Viewed at the cinema, Apocalypse Now is like a lucid dream, so beautifully photographed that you could freeze frame any second of it and it'd be like a National Geographic pictorial on acid. The actual scenes of apocalypse - from the US bombing of villages to the Hindu ritual slaughtering of a cow - all conspire to make hell on earth look strangely graceful, while Brando himself is always lit from the periphery of the shadows: his face becomes a photographic art in itself."
