Listed #5 in "Top 100 Movies to see before you die".
I own both versions and i have never bothered to watch "Redux" since what i have seen of it destroys the plotline.
the below quote was lifted from "Top 100 films" and sums it all up nicely.
"The story of shooting 'Apocalypse Now' is nearly as famous and compelling as the film itself. In fact, 'Hearts of Darkness,' the documentary about the exhausting 14-month location shoot, is a classic in its own right. But that doesn't rob the original film of any of its power. More an allegory for the madness of all wars than Vietnam itself, it is a brutal epic that takes the viewer down the river and into Hell."
