Abstract

Intertextual references from Heart of Darkness, constantly reappear in the scenes of the film endowing new meanings over and over again. It is intertextuality that played main role in creating a different perspective of the Vietnam War as epitomized in the film Apocalypse Now. Intertextuality is an inalienable property of every text and will continue to be one for texts yet to be created. It is a continuous thread always knitting different patterns in the literary world. The film is a specific presentation of different characters involved in the story with strong intertextual references to Conrad's novel Heart of Darkness. As a product of intertextuality it becomes another system of signs.
