Apocalypse Now Redux
Dir. Francis Ford Coppola. 1979/2001, 202 mins. DCP courtesy of American Zoetrope. With Marlon Brando, Martin Sheen, Robert Duvall, Dennis Hopper. Coppola’s transposition of Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness to the Vietnam War is one of the most ambitious of all Hollywood films. With Vittorio Storaro’s virtuoso cinematography and Walter Murch’s revolutionary surround-sound design, this is an absorbing work of existential terror and awe, lorded over by Brando as that icon of madness, Colonel Kurtz. This is Coppola’s restored 2001 version, truer in spirit to the Conrad novel than the original release.
