The scene with the French plantation owners almost ruins the movie IMO. I'm not sure what Copola was thinking by including this. I heard he hated the scene back when it was first shot, which explains why he didn't include it in the original cut. At least the original cut is available on DVD too.

The French are assholes.

Yeah, well try watching the 5 Hour Work Print version.
After sitting through it all in one sitting (yes I got it some
time back) of it. Let's just say some of it worked and other
parts didn't. The French Plantation Scene in the 5 Hr version
is about 15 minutes longer than in Redux... then of course there
is a lot more footage of helicopters, and helicopters and more
helicopters.

I think there is a reason the original theatrical release was
the theatrical release. It's the only version that FEELS right.
Redux is nice, and the 5 hour deal is good for ONE viewing but I'll
take the original cut myself. Problem is that the original version is
no longer being pressed and it's getting harder and harder to find.
Now a days it's Redux or nothing.

It's still available on Amazon, I should probably order it soon. I've considered ordering the work print version (I believe you provided the link for it some time ago) but I'm not sure I'd ever actually watch it. And if I did I'm not sure I'd even like the movie anymore.

PS. This movie inspired me to hack hermegildo to death with a machete.

Agreed. Original release cut is best. Redux is a snore.

Man, I love redux.

My only real complaint is the French plantation scene. It adds nothing to the movie aside from some absurdity, but its not like AN lacks in that department anyway.

From another perspective ...

It's a bit too political, but adds a lot of atmosphere in my opinion.

That is one of my favorite war movies.

I got the Redux DVD a while back and I was disappointed on the new scenes, they killed a great movie.:mad_2:

They should've left it alone.
