1979/2001. USA. Directed by Francis Ford Coppola. Adapted from Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness. Photographed by Vittorio Storaro. With Marlon Brando, Robert Duvall, Martin Sheen, Frederic Forrest, Dennis Hopper, Larry Fishburne, Sam Bottoms. Coppola’s epic vision of Vietnam is shown here in the “director’s cut,” issued in 2001 and featuring footage cut from the original release version. After the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Coppola’s film is a stunning and prescient critique of a country gone astray from “the better angels of our nature.” 197 min.
