"Apocalypse Now," Francis Ford Coppola's surreal account of a journey to the heart of darkness during the Vietnam War, has been voted the greatest film of the last quarter-century by British film experts. In a poll organized by the British Film Institute's Sight & Sound magazine, the 1979 epic beat Martin Scorsese's "Raging Bull" into second place and Ingmar Bergman's "Fanny and Alexander" into third. "Apocalypse Now deserves its position for being a richly complex, madcap experiment in war film-making that comes off because it never falls from the tightrope it walks between extravagance and profundity," Sight & Sound editor Nick James said in a statement. A panel of 50 British film experts were asked to consider 259 films made between 1978 and now. In a similar poll conducted by the same magazine earlier this year, Orson Welles' "Citizen Kane" was the named the best film of all time."
