Apocalypse Now Redux

apocalypseAn amazing movie. I was never a big fan, but it is still impressive. This "director's cut" (aka Redux) included additional scenes, specifically a long talky scene at a French plantation which attempts to put the Vietnam war in some broader political and historical context. Also, there were no opening credits, and maybe no closing credits either? We were given a pre-printed cast and crew credit sheet at the door. (With Kevin at Boston Common Cinemas)
