Apocalypse Now Final Cut 4K 03/06/21

4K Ultra HD + Blu Ray + Digital

Apocalypse Now in 4K? ¬†After The Wild Bunch this is one title likely to get me to invest in a new format. Francis Coppola & John Milius’ Vietnam War epic may not be perfect, but it is one of the most exciting movie experiences ever and one of the top achievements of the first film school generation of world-class moviemakers. The release is agreeably all-inclusive: the original Road Show cut and the two revised versions are here along with the excellent making-of feature Hearts of Darkness. Re-tooled and polished up for picture and audio, this qualifies as a prime audio show-off disc too. Marlon Brando, Martin Sheen, Robert Duvall, Frederic Forrest and Laurence Fishburne all get ticketed for speeding at the Indy 500. On Blu-ray from Lionsgate.
