Product Details


Product Description

This 3-Disc Deluxe Edition includes Apocalypse Now and Apocalypse Now Redux in stunning new transfers supervised by Francis Ford Coppola - and presented for the first time in their original 2.35:1 theatrical aspect ratios. Also included is the feature-length making-of documentary Hearts of Darkness, presented in a new 1080p HD transfer. Additional features include a 48-page collectible booklet with never-before-seen archives from the set, over 9 hours of bonus features, plus a storyboard gallery, image galleries, marketing archives and an original script excerpt from John Milius featuring hand-written notes from Coppola. Apocalypse Now: Francis Ford Coppola's stunning vision of the heart of darkness in all of us, re-edited and re-mastered with 49 minutes of additional footage. Nominated for eight Academy Awardsr, this classic and compelling Vietnam War epic stars Martin Sheen as Army Captain Willard, a troubled man sent on a dangerous and mesmerizing odyssey into Cambodia to assassinate a renegade American colonel named Kurtz (Marlon Brando), who has succumbed to the horrors of war and barricaded himself in a remote outpost. Hearts of Darkness Hearts of Darkness is an engrossing, unwavering look back at Francis Coppola's chaotic, catastrophe-plagued Vietnam production, Apocalypse Now. Filled with juicy gossip and a wonderful behind-the-scenes look at the stressful world of moviemaking, the documentary mixes on-location home movies shot in the Philippines by Eleanor Coppola, the director's wife, with revealing interviews with the cast and crew, shot 10 years later. Similar to Burden of Dreams, Les Blank's absorbing portrait of Werner Herzog's struggle to make Fitzcarraldo, the film chronicles Coppola's eventual decent into obsessive psychosis as everything that could go wrong does go wrong. Storms destroy sets, money evaporates, the Philippine government continually harasses the director, Coppola has romantic affairs, and he can't write the story's ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great 2 for 1 deal Nov. 6 2006
Format:DVD
I think the original version of Apocalypse Now is vastly superior to the needlessly long Redux, although the additional scenes of the latter (the French plantation, Playboy bunnies, Willard stealing the surfboard) are interesting in and of themselves. So now we can have both, in a single, bargain-priced and handsomely packaged edition. As with most DVDs, the bonus deleted scenes are pretty much a waste of time, although they do help a person understand the choices Coppola made in editing, and in that sense, it really drives home the magnitude of his achievement in creating the original masterpiece. I don't like that the movie is broken into two parts; why couldn't they have put the original on one disc, and Redux on the other? But then again, in a long movie most people have to take a bathroom break at some point anyway, and the sampan massacre is an appropriately dramatic scene with which to end part one. All told, The Apocalypse Now Complete Dossier 2-disc special edition is well worth buying.

3.0 out of 5 stars problems with this canadian release Oct. 20 2010
Format:Blu-ray
A warning to anybody who cares, I bought this Full Disclosure edition yesterday at HMV Megastore in Montreal. Here are the problems with the Canadian release (handled by Maple Pictures): it didn't come with the 48 page booklet (none do). Disc 1 and Disc 2 are mislabelled as Disc 2 and Disc 1(this error applies also to the 2 disc edition). Maple knows about the problems and have recalled both sets. It seems the corrected editions will be in stores next week, hopefully!
Another big problem is that both movies are missing the credit reels at the end of the movie. The movie disc label says 153 minutes and 202 minutes but they end up actually being 147 minutes and 196 minutes. weird...

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware! Pan and Scan mess Dec 27 2002
By AHF
Format:DVD
While the original film was 2.1:1 aspect ratio, Paramount has butchered this film by pan and scanning down to fit a 16:9 widescreen TV. Of course they don't bother to tell you that on the package. So much for the director's vision. Paramount, you should be ashamed.

Format:DVD
PLOT(minus spoilers): We follow five soldiers, led by Sheen's character, as they head out on an assasination mission. The target is a C/O(Brando) who's apparently gone AWOL, having began to slaughter the enemy without orders as well as become a godlike figure in the eyes of many indigenous people in the area, virtually turning them into his warrior slaves. Upon traveling to find the C/O, Sheen becomes strangely intrigued by his military tactics, tactics so swit and terrible that even the VC have become fearful of him. The military, meanwhile, has assured Sheen's character that this commander is indeed insane, but it's the journey up river in which we see......
.... EVERYTHING out on the river is insane. Posts are manned without commanders, officers(Robert Duvall) are more fixated on surfing and Play Boy Playmates than their present battle. During these segments, when we move - almost drift - from scene to scene, we begin to see this Vietnam as something different, something more vague and faintly evil than we could ever had dreamt up. This side of the world has gone mad, as Sheen's character soon begins to see ever more clearly. Even the men accompanying him begin to shift towards the other side of sanity. But don't fret, the way this shift is portrayed is a beautiful thing to witness, as is the irony of their endeavor - that, sent to kill an officer for going crazy, EVERYTHING is also crazy, and the AWOL officer makes perhaps the most sense.
I suppose this film reiterates all we thought we knew about Vietnam, only it happens in a way that both tears and swallows your preconceptions alive, forcing you to dig ever deeper into the madness that surrounded Vietnam.

5.0 out of 5 stars A SURREAL JOURNEY TO MADNESS. July 22 2003
Format:DVD
"Apocalypse Now Redux" is an extended version of the 1979 classic "Apocalypse Now"; in this version, the director Francis Ford Coppola added 49 minutes of footage that was deleted in the original release. There are two major new segments and new little bits that help to understand better the surreal story of the film. The little bits of scenes are great and sure make the movie more pleasant. However, the scenes with the playboy bunnies doesn't help too much in the narrative and the pace of the film, perhaps they should have been trimmed a little bit for better results. But the segment of the french plantation is just horrible, pointless and boring, the director should have kept these scenes on the editing room once again.
However, "Apocalypse Now Redux" is a good addition to any movie collection, the picture and the sound quality are very good, and the movie by itself it's a fascinating classic, the great parts outnumber the flawed scenes; perhaps the longer segments doesn't help too much, but at least contribute to understand better the story. There are very few extras on this DVD, but as I say before, the movie by itself is worth the money. If you liked the original "Apocalypse Now", give a chance to this new version, if you haven't seen this movie yet, start with the original, and if you like it, go get "Apocalypse Now Redux". Absolutely recommendable to every one who loves the classic movies.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Maiming of a Masterpiece April 18 2003
Format:DVD
In 1995, I attended a pre-release screening "In the Mouth of Madness", which was preceded by an audience Q&A with John Carpenter. He was asked for his comments on the then new trend of "Director's Cut" video releases. His response was, "It's all about going to the video store, taking your wallet out of your pocket, and putting your money on the counter AGAIN". While this is not always true, in the case of Apocalypse Now Redux, his words are particularly apt. Had I never seen the original, I would have written this film off as self-indulgent, rambling, and unfocused. The expanded scenes added insight into some of the supporting characters, but none of that did anything to move the story forward. The Playboy bunny scene's comic tone was distracting, and the Plantation scene was so out of place, it felt like it had been taken from an unrelated screenplay. I am a big fan of this film, but Redux is not a version that I would watch again - in my opinion, this film's greatest contribution is as a learning tool for film students as a demonstration of what can go wrong in the editing room. If you don't already own Apocalypse Now, go buy the original. If you do, I recommed renting this from your local video store - it is a curiosity, but it doesn't stand out as a good film on its own.
