Throwback Thursday: Movie - Apocalypse Now and Apocalypse Now Redux

Today's Throwback Thursday features the war movie

Apocalypse Now

as well as the extended version

Apocalypse Now Redux.

In August 2013, I ambitiously watched both the original and redux version of the movie at the same time. While the longer redux version by itself has a runtime of 195 minutes, I spent approximately four and a half hours watching both together due to the overhead necessary to keep the two versions mildly synchronized.

Overall, I would recommend first watching the original movie by itself, then watching the redux version by itself, and finally, for those interested, watching both of them at the same time.

There's a lot of overlap between my posts for the original and redux version.
Check out my thoughts and/or comments for the original here.
