Apocalypse Now: Final Cut

29/09/19, 21:00, IDEAL



The unsurpassed masterpiece by Francis Ford Coppola becomes 40 and is screened in the brand new final cut its director always dreamed of. Impressively restored from the original negative for the first time ever, watch, listen and most importantly experience the “Apocalypse” like never before in this unique screening of a lifetime.


USA | 1979 |  COLOR |  DCP | 183' | ENGLISH, FRENCH, VIETNAMESE

The most ambitious film title that kept its promise. The 40 year-old Francis Ford Coppola Film, in this years absolute version, is a film exhaustively experiential. The transfer of Conrad’s ‘Heart of Darkness’ in Vietnam and the search for a dark alter ego, as the director said, ‘is not a film about Vietnam, it is Vietnam’. Correction, if we may: ‘Apocalypse Now’ surpasses Vietnam.

It’s the capturing of the War as a manifestation of human transformation, the documenting of the moment and the ‘after’ when dehumanization is real, leaving reason behind. Watching ‘Apocalypse Now’, the ‘other viewer’ feels utterly petrified by its consequence. Winner of two Academy Awards, the Palme d’ Or and many more nominations by institutions that got prestigious by rewarding it. I.D.
