With a 4K restoration featuring a brand new sound mix, Apocalypse Now: Final Cut is abound with psychedelic imagery and a deep, nightmarish soundscape. Adapting Joseph Conrad's 'Heart of Darkness', Coppola dives into conflagration of the Vietnam War with this spectacular American epic. Martin Sheen's Captain Willard is sent up the Mekong River in search of the enigmatic Colonel Kurtz (Marlon Brando) - who has gone rogue and set up his own stronghold down river.
