Burak’s review published on Letterboxd:
I watched the uncut version of the film, the 200 minutes redux version.
This film is huge, very huge. But when I did research on the conditions under which the film was shot, the film came to a completely different place in my eyes. Shotting, cinematography, acting... Another movie related to each sequence can be made.
It's also incredible that the film was shot for about $35,000,000. I was expecting more.
Come into the world and make the The Godfather series and this movie. I can't talk. Uzun ve güzel ömrün olsun Ford dedem.
For more information about the film, I will watch the documentary "Hearts of Darkness: a filmmaker's Apocalypse" as soon as possible.

Someday this war's gonna end. That'd be just fine with the boys on the boat. They weren't looking for anything more than a way home. Trouble is, I'd been back there, and I knew that it just didn't exist anymore.
Disneyland? Fuck, man, this is better than Disneyland!
What the hell do you know about surfing, Major? You're from goddamned New Jersey!
