Apocalypse Moby – Moby Dick Meets Apocalypse Now

Apocalypse Moby is a literary “gene-splice” between two great stories: Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now and Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. The stories are similar: men onboard a ship who must travel across treacherous waters in search of a legend they must confront, who, along their way, have adventures, contemplate the nature of the world and bear witness to its darkness. While faithful to both Melville and Coppola’s respective masterpieces, Apocalypse Moby transfroms them into something wonderfully strange, hallucinatory, funny and new altogether.

Apocalypse Now is actually the same story as Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness about the African slave trade. Do I get nerd points?
