Il n'y a pas de doute, Coppola et Lucas sont bien liés, comme le prouve Apocalypse Now Redux, dont le seul réel intérêt est de prouver à quel point le film original est infiniment meilleur que sa remasterisation. Si l'on y retrouve les plans incroyables, les séquences démentes et quelques performances d'acteur remarquables (Laurence Fishburne n'en faisant absolument PAS partie), on doit aussi se fader deux séquences d'un ridicule et d'un manque de subtilité confinant à l'abomination; celle des playmates se transformant en un plaidoyer féministe digne d'un CM1 tout particulièrement. Tout en montrant son talent indéniable, Coppola se regarde beaucoup filmer et abuse de la voix-off assommante de didactisme de Martin Sheen. En gagnant près d'une heure, Apocalypse Now a tant perdu... Malheureusement, le score inécoutable de Carmine Coppola n'a pas disparu, lui.

I should have seen the original version first. If each piece of the film is - regarded as a whole - worthwhile, they altogether (being too many) hide the virtues of the film by making it too long and slow. Therefore, the wait to meet a fascinatingly presented Colonel Kurtz becomes almost unbearable, and even if the end is plainly grand, it doesn't make up for the lack of dynamism of the rest of the picture (a problem that is solved by the removal of the additional footage). By trying to do too well, that is to exceed excellence; Coppola actually alters it by making it less tight - though it remains strong. Ironically, the additional footage diminishes the film.

Improve your brain when you watch the additional footage?

I loved the original cut but Redux has humanised the characters and clarified the storyline much more.

Absolute masterpiece! What a trip of a movie. Very psychedelic and horrifying at times.

I much prefer the full film as opposed to the original. Even as a young person, and unsophisticated film student, I thought the original was too choppy, with major motivations and sub-texts unexplained. With the full version, much closer to Heart of Darkness.

One of my favorite films in terms of pure film art.

Francis Ford Coppola's ambitious Apocalypse Now Redux may be lengthy, but it surely deserves its place among the war classics.

Apocalypse Now Redux is not required to watch considering it's additional footage of the original film, but worth checking out for FFC's full vision of the film

There is no denying this movie is a classic the visuals are still 40 years later, stunning

Without the silly and overlong French plantation scene, this may have been decent. Apocalypse Now: The Political Version.

The story line is good, but I find the movie quite boring overall.

The greatest masterpiece ever!

The film's incredible strengths are intact and this longer cut has some merits but it substantially dilutes a couple of the perfect aspects about the theatrical: Pacing and, to some extent, tone.

Redux: 8.5/10

um dos melhores de Coppola ou o melhor?

Apocalypse Now is quite possibly the most realistic depiction of war ever produced. War is Hell...worse than Hell.
July 11, 2016
Boring, drawn out and scenes added in that didn't need to be there, Apocalypse Now Redux is one of the most disappointing classics.
½ May 10, 2016
A truly dark journey into the minds of desperate and troubled men.
½ May 3, 2016
A raw, dark, and legendary war epic. And this is the spicy version. Hard to get through. Harder to look away. Must-see!

160212: The only thing that comes to mind is "powerful".
February 3, 2016
As a standalone film, it's agonizingly long, and the worthwhile takeaways from the original are lost in the mud. This piece serves as a reminder as to why even the greatest directors need peer counsel.
