Francis Ford Coppola's masterful film about the moral madness of the Vietnam War was inspired by Joseph Conrad's novella, Heart of Darkness. Captain Willard (Martin Sheen) is sent into the Cambodian jungle to terminate with extreme prejudice Colonel Kurtz (Marlon Brando), who has become insane and now runs his own fiefdom. Traveling downriver on a patrol boat, Willard encounters an air cavalry commander, Lt. Colonel Kilgore (Robert Duvall), whose love of war is matched only by his love of surfing. Coppola almost went bankrupt and Sheen suffered a heart attack during the making of the film, but the rigorous shoot paid off in this unforgettable film. For the first time ever, the Apocalypse Now "Complete Dossier" is available in the UK. This very special Steelbook edition features both the original and "Redux" cuts, never before seen bonus footage and standout packaging.
