Already renowned in many circles as the greatest war film ever made, the extra 40 minutes of footage that this new cut has returned to the film deepens the original Apocalypse Now experience even further. The strength of Coppola's film lay not just in the fact that it showed unflinchingly the sheer brutality of war, but also that it laid bare the surreal truth of massive groups of grown men going out and trying to kill each other. Now you can add surfboard stealing, Playboy bunny shagging, as well as a random dinner party at a forgotten French plantation to the already lengthy list of oddities.
