“A film of pure sensation, dazzling audiences with light and noise, laying bare the stark horror of combat.” – Tom Huddleston, Time Out
Restored from the original negative for the first time ever, Apocalypse Now Final Cut is Coppola’s most fully-realized version of his multi-awarded classic – a haunting journey into madness that has fascinated generations of movie lovers. Winner of two Academy Awards, and featuring an all-star cast including Marlon Brando, Robert Duvall, Martin Sheen, Dennis Hopper, Laurence Fishburne and Harrison Ford, Coppola’s visually dazzling masterpiece is a surreal, hallucinatory, epic tragedy about the nightmare of the Vietnam War, following Army Captain Willard (Sheen), a troubled man sent on a dangerous and mesmerizing odyssey into Cambodia to assassinate a renegade American colonel named Kurtz (Brando), who has succumbed to the horrors of war and barricaded himself in a remote outpost.
