Apocalypse Now Redux

Marlon Brando, Robert Duvall, Martin Sheen, Frederic Forrest,
History will no doubt call Apocalypse Now the most astute, acute portrait of Americans at war in the post–World War II period. We hear about Brando’s Colonel Kurtz long before we actually see him, and when we do, his is the hidden face of war. Coppola said his aim was “to create a film experience that would give its audience a sense of the horror, the madness, the sensuousness, and the moral dilemma of the Vietnam war.” Apocalypse Now Redux is the 2001 reedit of the film, adding forty-nine minutes that had been cut from the 1979 original.
