More extras than R1 or R2.
But not more than the R2 French 2 disc version:
I see the R4 version is still framed at 2.0:1.
"...I see the R4 version is still framed at 2.0:1."
...which is exactly as it should be, since that is how the - Director-approved, for better or worse, like it or not! - "Redux" version was released to theaters worldwide...
...isn't it long past time to stop flogging this very dead horse?!?...
. . . . . .
For the record, it was shown 2.35:1 theatrically for Redux
If you watch old Vitto on the SciFi Dune SE, you'll see that he's not quite in the dimension
"For the record, it was shown 2.35:1 theatrically for Redux"
...ok... I take back what I said about the theatrical showings of the 35mm prints -- but surely not of the 70mm prints?!?...
(Quote from the article linked below: "...An orthodox 2.35:1 or 2.4:1 transfer would in some ways be a more accurate reflection of the framing seen in most cinemas...")
...anyway, here's what the Producer of "Redux" has to say about the DVD transfer:
. . . . . .
I'm gona have to get either one of these SEs. Does anyone have the 2 disc French release? Are all the extras in English as I assume they are, they wouldn't dub the interviews/documentary I suppose.
Also Amazon doesn't seem to have it in stock, they ship within 1-2 weeks.
Lenny: I have the French version, and some features are French only.
I haven't really watched the discs yet, only briefly to check if they were working. If you ( or somebody else) is interested, I'll check the languages of all features in a moment.
Carl, what I'm saying is that the cinematographer, Vitto Storaro has some pretty wacked out ideas, like his Univisium 2.0 for everything aspect ratioa and his wacky theories on color in a movie
Not to add to the confusion, but wasn't the R2-France disc cropped to 1.85:1, or is that a myth?
...it's a myth...

The French DVD is 2.00:1
I just checked the second disc and found the following features on disc 2:
- Interview with Claude Berry 3:40 (French only!)
- Redux Trailer 2:30 (English with optional French subs)
- 1979 Cannes Press Conference 3:20 (English with optional French subs)
- Destruction Of Kurtz Compound with optional Coppola commentary [same as on original AN release] (English with optional French subs)
- The main feature on the second disc is the 2001 Cannes press conference (led by M. Ciment) with Coppola, editor Walter Murch and three more people. It's about 45 minutes and is in English with optional French subs. Only the introduction is in French, and Ciment talks one bit more in French. Also one question is in French, but the interpreter's translation can be clearly heard.
EDIT: The link that Hendrik provides states that the movie contains both French and English subtitles, but there are only French subs available.
For what it's worth, a Zoetrope employee was interviewed by the Australian editon of EMPIRE magazine and said that a comprehensive Special Edition of APOCALYPSE NOW is definitely in the works, with an equivalent number of extras to the various GODFATHER S.E's (i.e commentary tracks, new docos etc.), and the likely inclusion of both versions of the movie. He wouldn't be drawn on whether HEARTS OF DARKNESS would be included, and said that it would be a while before it came out, but it was in the works. "It's not imminent, but it will be worth the wait"...
Thanks for the rundown of French release's extras, seems very good but I think I'll just wait for that ultimate edition, plus this movie doesn't really need any extras, for now.
