Reviews
Mine: Really, really long. I don't think that the additional material helps this movie really at all. The two additional sequences, one with the Playboy bunnies and another with a French family; do nothing to help the plot and do little to help with character development. Still an impressive work. Visually stunning. Gives a real feeling of the insanity of war.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: (This is a review of the original) Coppola's controversial Vietnam war epic, based on Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness. Special agent Sheen journeys upriver into Cambodia with orders to find and kill errant officer Brando, leading him (and viewer) on a mesmerizing odyssey of turbulent, often surreal encounters. Unfortunately, film's conclusion--when he does find Brando--is cerebral and murky. Still, a great movie experience most of the way, with staggering, Oscar-winning photography by Vittorio Storaro. The documentary HEARTS OF DARKNESS: A FILMMAKER'S APOCALYPSE chronicles the film's production. Technovision.
