4.5 Nirvana Now bacteria | 08/02/2013 | See all bacteria's reviews (2) This has to be the definitive release. Overseen by Coppola himself and with a whole bundle of interesting extras (but no commentary, sadly), it is now possible to compare and contrast the original cut with Coppola's later controversial 'Redux'. The extras - including extended conversations with writer John Milius and lead actor Martin Sheen - reveal that Steve McQueen was the original first choice for Willard, and George Lucas (!) was meant to direct. You also get Orson Welles' radio broadcast of Conrad's Heart of Darkness; Eleanor Coppola's fascinating 'making of' documentary, Hearts of Darkness; and - best of all - a sparkling Blu-ray print in Hi-Def.
