APOCALYPSE NOW REDUX | Out Now

One of the most iconic films ever made and one of the most disturbing dramatisations of the Vietnam War ever seen, Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now is cinema at its most fascinating and unforgettable. Giving sense to “the horror, the madness, the sensuousness and the moral dilemma of the Vietnam war” (Francis Ford Coppola), the movie follows the epic, bloody and muddy trip of Captain Willard, sailing up the Nung River beyond the Cambodian border in search of the mysterious Colonel Kurtz. Deemed insane and a danger to the war effort, Kurtz must be terminated with extreme prejudice. But the closer he gets to Kurtz the closer he gets to his own heart of darkness, in a crepuscular finale. In 2001 Coppola re-approached his hallucinatory masterpiece to create a definitive version, reinstating 49 minutes of previously unseen material. The result is Apocalypse Now Redux.
