“APOCALYPSE NOW IS NOT MERELY THE GREATEST FILM TO COME OUT OF THE VIETNAM EXPERIENCE, BUT ONE OF THE GREAT WORKS ABOUT THE MADNESS OF OUR TIMES.”
— THE GUARDIAN
American Captain Benjamin Willard (Martin Sheen) is assigned to track down and kill Colonel Kurtz (Marlon Brando), who has reportedly massacred hundreds of innocent people and set up his own fiefdom in the jungle. Willard and his crew encounter strange sights and people on their surreal journey into the heart of darkness. Rated PG-13 for some drug material and suggestive references. In English, French and Vietnamese with English subtitles. Director: Francis Ford Coppola (US 1979) 183 min.
Apocalypse Now: Final Cut is director Coppola’s refinement of earlier edits of the film and now stands as his definitive version. The new 4K transfer was made from the original negative. The Rafael’s presentation inaugurates operation of our new 4K digital projectors, which will be featured prominently in a special film series in October.
