I perfectly got your point. I’ll still pretend I didn’t, until you record these intros.

Ok, but I'm not sure if I have Coppola brainwashed enough to release my superior Apo Now version.

But it would be interesting if his final cut is a compromise between the theatrical version and the Redux version. I like some of the new stuff, but obviously not all.

Hey, maybe it's the Stanton Cut after all:

Let's see.
I felt that the Redux version added some strong and important material, and funnily did not feel to run considerably longer than the theatrical version, but still was too long to be perfect.

For me it felt odd to have now some "humour" (even a little bit of slapstick) in it, humour which did not really work in the context. The parts with the stolen surf board felt wrong, even showed a relaxed and smiling Willard.
The important scene when they meet the bunnies again, runs much too long, and becomes a little bit repetitive.

And then the long sequence at the French plantation.
It is also easy too see what Coppola wants with that scene, but again it goes on much too long, especially as there is too much dialogue explaining history. By cutting most of these too meaningful dialogue out, the film could be more subtle here, but still could retain its basic premise. And could even by a certain way of montage strengthen its dreamlike appearance.

I'm curious how he does it.

Note that the Q&A at Tribeca is included as an extra. So glad I saved the $120.

https://en.soundlightup.com/news/meyer-sound-provides-sensual-sound-technology-for-apocalypse-now-final-cut-at-tribeca-film-festival-premiere.html

So without the full Meyer sound system, watchers of the Final Cut may be seeing it, but they won't be "hearing" it. Home Theater ain't gonna cut it.

Here's the quick 'n' dirty on what the new cut contains:

Quote
Glenn Kenny‏ @Glenn__Kenny · Apr 28 

In short: they still steal Kilgore's surfboard, they DON'T have sex with Playmates, and they do stumble upon the French plantation. But there's also little improvements (I felt) in flow, dovetails and such.
