The opening montage/voice over from Apocalypse Now is one of my favorites. Not sure which version is original but the Redux is what I have seen most recently.

I read that although edited on a flatbed, they first edited with window burns on U-Matic tape, perhaps the first offline film edit on video.

On a related note, just found this about Murch's opinion of 3D:

The Conversation ftw. It was also the first picture for which he'd edited sound, and was nominated for an Oscar for it.

It's a really disturbing movie in a lot of ways, but worth watching for a lot of reasons, including a small role for a pre-Star Wars Harrison Ford and a stunning lead performance by Gene Hackman.

He's obviously done a lot of other great movies, some of the greatest in American cinema...but as an editor, I don't think anything comes close to this, especially when you look at how he works with picture and sound together.

The Conversation is one of those movies I have to watch all the way thru if I stumble across it while channel-surfing.
