In 1979 renowned director Francis Ford Coppola changed cinema history with his mesmerising epic Apocalypse Now, one of the most unforgettable, authentic and harrowing depictions of the Vietnam War. In 2001 he re-approached his hallucinatory masterpiece to create a definitive version, reinstating 49 minutes of previously unseen material. The result is Apocalypse Now Redux. Tormented army captain Benjamin L. Willard is sent on a secret mission into warring Cambodia to eliminate the mysterious and psychotic renegade Colonel Kurtz. But it’s a hazardous journey that will take him into the heart of savage conflict and to the edge of sanity.
A new cut of the multi-million dollar Vietnam psychedelic epic, with director Francis Ford Coppola adding 55 minutes of deleted scenes. The Vietnam War rages and US Captain Willard (Martin Sheen) is sent on a mission to assassinate Colonel Kurtz (Marlon Brando), a renegade American officer who has set up his own kingdom in the heart of the jungle. His journey begins with a devastating aerial assault on a small Vietnamese village, the attacking helicopters booming Wagner's 'Ride of the Valkyrie' out of their speakers, and becomes progressively more deranged as it moves up the river.
