ALMOST COMPLETE APOCALYPSE

First and foremost, you can now buy the original and extended cuts of Apocalypse Now in a single package with a ton of extras for the insanely low price of $14, so to throw any complaints on top of that is pretty damn petty.  But that being said, it's a shame that studio hurdles prevent the incredibly well done documentary Hearts of Darkness, filmed by Coppola's wife, which to this day has never been issued on DVD, was not included in the set.  The behind the scenes footage of a drunken Martin Sheen freaking out in front the mirror, Brando raving, and the non stop long term turmoil suffered by the director is sorely missed.  But again...only $14.

There's some great stuff in this package, however, and it's getting some nice praise from folks who've seen it in the retroCRUSH forums.

"The deleted scenes in this new version are pretty cool. As is the case with most deleted scenes included in DVD packages, there's some that you can completely see why they were left on the cutting room floor.

There are several included in this version that are very interesting. From what I've read, the original screenplay was called "The Psychedelic Soldier" (you can read it here - http://www.dailyscript.com/scripts/apocolypse.html) & while it was very similar to the final version of what became Apocalypse Now, there were some notable differences. Some of the deleted scense allude to some of the dialogue that was in the original version.

The scenes with Scott Glenn's character "Colby" & Dennis Hopper's photojournalist character are great & definitely worth seeing.
