The Films of Francis Ford Coppola
Jsterling03 on 03/06/2009
|It's really great to have Francis Ford Coppola writing and directing movies again. There was a 10 year period in which the five-time Academy Award winner concentrated solely on the producing end of the business, but he came back in fine form in 2007, and, as of this writing, his latest, "Tetro" (2009), is due for release soon. As Coppola has been responsible for some of the greatest films ever made, any new offering is reason for excitement.|
For an in depth look at the man in action (at his best and his worst), I urge you to seek out the amazing documentary, "Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse" (1991). It is much more than a fascinating, blow-by-blow account of the making of his classic war epic, "Apocalypse Now" (1979). It is the tale of Coppola's near undoing, and it is an absolutely riveting viewing experience; nearly as much so as the film it chronicles.
