The Frazerian influences and impressions in F.F. Coppola's film Apocalypse Now are numerous and profound. In particular the character of Kurtz and his ritual slaughter are a direct link-up with the "dying god" in The Golden Bough and involve the same type of reflection on the dialectics of the "civilization-primitive state" relationship. An in-depth analysis of the film links the Frazerian influences to a vaster range of cultural references including Nietzsche, Freud, J. Conrad, and T.S. Eliot, centering on the two themes of "primitive man" and "the apocalypse".
