We went to see this Final Cut of Apocalypse Now on Thursday night it has a limited season at Dendy Cimenas. I think we have seen, pretty well every cut of this film ... this one is not to be missed.
Yes it is long - take a snack - but the power of this film still resonates and may have grown in clarity of message.... War, Hate and conflict with corrupt the soul.
Also remember to check out Eleanor Coppola's documentary Hearts of Darkness about the making of the film and her book Notes on the Making of Apocalypse Now.
