Apocalypse Now Redux

Francis Ford Coppola has done a ground-up re-edit of his 1979 masterpiece, adding nearly 50 minutes of previously unseen footage. The result could be seen as a tad self-indulgent. The new scenes aren't exactly necessary, but do add some interesting shading to the hellish "up the river" quest of Captain Willard (Martin Sheen). At nearly three and a half hours, Apocalypse Now Redux is one gruelling journey--of course, that's exactly what it's supposed to be. This one still packs a tremendous punch even after 20-plus years and deserves to be seen on the big screen. 197 minutes
