Apocalypse Now Final Cut
Starring: Harrison Ford, Laurence Fishburne, Martin Sheen, Marlon Brando, Sam Bottoms, Dennis Hopper, Frederic Forrest, Robert DuVall
Duration: 229 min
Forty years after its original release, Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now returns to cinemas looking and sounding better than ever. Restored from the original negative to the highest audio and visual standards by the director himself, Final Cut is Coppola’s preferred and most visceral version of his Oscar-winning Vietnam War epic. This never-before-seen cut features only some of the footage added back into the Redux release, bringing the runtime to just a shade over three hours.
This screening includes a Q&A between Coppola and director Steven Soderbergh, recorded at the Tribeca Film Festival in April, in which they reflect on the film’s legacy in light of its 40th anniversary, and the long journey to creating this new restoration.
