    Epic. Especially the triptych ending. Can't wait for the sequel. 8 years 7 months ago

    Watched the Coppola edition which is 4 hours.The editing, cinematography, color, acting and music are all fantastic.

    The double exposure shots with Napoleon at sea and the crowds moving in the waves was breathtaking!

    Watched the 332 minute version. Act III is incredibly slow, and ruins the great build up in the first two act's in my opinion. 1 year 2 months ago
