Product description

Product Description

With 49 additional minutes of never-before-seen footage, Oscar-winning director Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfather Part II) presents this definitive, all-new director's cut of this groundbreaking motion picture epic. Honoured with nine 1979 Academy Award nominations including Best Picture, it's a powerful cinematic journey featuring Marlon Brando, Martin Sheen and Laurence Fishburne in a stellar cast. Also starring Robert Duvall, Harrison Ford and Dennis Hopper, Apocalypse Now Redux is not merely an extended version of a big-screen classic it is a completely re-thought, re-mixed and re-edited interpretation of a film widely considered one of the greatest movies ever made.

From Amazon.co.uk

Following the example set by his old pals Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, Francis Ford Coppola has revisited a classic that no-one ever thought needed enhancement and produced Apocalypse Now Redux, a remastered and extended version of his hallucinogenic Vietnam nightmare that adds some 50 minutes of extra material. On the plus side, certain extended sequences--such as Kilgore's bombing-cum-surfing raid and the final battle of nerves between Martin Sheen and Marlon Brando--add greater depth to our appreciation of the film. On the debit side, the lengthy French plantation interlude and the squalid fate of the Playboy bunnies simply underscore what we already know about war and hell and the depressing futility of it all. It's possible that Apocalyspe Now is not really about Vietnam at all, but is in fact a despairing commentary on the dissolution of contemporary American society; it's also possible that Apocalypse Now Redux, for all its epic scale and visceral power, ultimately fails to make the film's real message any clearer than before. Either way, it remains one of the greatest (anti-)war films ever made.

On the DVD: Apocalypse Now Redux is self-recommending on DVD, especially with vividly remastered Dolby 5.1 sound (the whirling helicopter blades are dizzying) and an anamorphic widescreen picture. Disappointingly the disc contains no extra features other than a trailer for the Redux version. Coppola has provided excellent commentaries for his Godfather trilogy so it's a shame not to have his comments here; and the justly famous "Heart of Darkness" documentary is conspicuous by its absence, too. --Mark Walker
