A scene in which Willard and Chef venture into the jungle and are confronted by a tiger not only kicks off the journey up the river to Kurtz but gives us a glimpse into the danger of leaving the boat and the heart of darkness Willard (and Coppola) must face in order to complete the mission. In this video, we’ll take a look at what makes this scene important to the story, the color-theory and inspirations cinematographer Vittorio Storaro used, and the crazy story about bringing a tiger from Los Angeles to the location.
