Apocalypse Now tops poll of films

Apocalypse Now is the best film of the past three decades, critics said yesterday.

Francis Ford Coppola's Vietnam war movie topped a poll marking 30 years of the London Film Critics' Circle Awards, where it won best film in 1980.

The critics put it ahead of Steven Spielberg's Holocaust epic Schindler's List and The Lives Of Others.

Also in the top 10 were Unforgiven, Brokeback Mountain, Cinema Paradiso, L.A. Confidential, Fargo, Distant Voices, Still Lives and The King Of Comedy.
