Description

Details

A new cut of the multi-million dollar Vietnam psychedelic epic, with director Francis Ford Coppola adding 55 minutes of deleted scenes. The Vietnam War rages and US Captain Willard (Martin Sheen) is sent on a mission to assassinate Colonel Kurtz (Marlon Brando), a renegade American officer who has set up his own kingdom in the heart of the jungle. His journey begins with a devastating aerial assault on a small Vietnamese village, the attacking helicopters booming Wagner's 'Ride of the Valkyrie' out of their speakers, and becomes progressively more deranged as it moves up the river.
