The Guardian | Is Apocalypse Now: Final Cut the best version we'll ever see? ‘Apocalypse Now: Final Cut’ Release Date Revealed for Both Theaters and 4K Blu-ray Perhaps the greatest film ever made, IMO. I was all of 3 years old when it was released in 1979. And I missed seeing 'Redux' in theaters in 2001. I won't make that same mistake again. Can. Not. Wait.
