If you are a fan of Coppola's film making, the culture of the 1960s or especially the film Apocalypse Now you will love this documentary put together by the filmmakers courageous ( but obviously loving ) wife. This behinds the scenes glimpse of the making of this iconic Vietnam war film which threatened to come crashing down at every turn, nearly driving the Director ( and probably a few around him ) insane, will lay bare the director's art and the risks of following a compulsive vision. The off the cuff scenes with Brando and Dennis Hopper are priceless in themselves.
The making of a film has never been documented with more penetration and truth than in Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse.
Directed by Eleanor Coppola, wife of Francis Ford Coppola, in 1991, this is a 96-minute documentary that chronicles the production problems including bad weather, actors' health and other issues that delayed the film.
It also shows the increasing costs and an interesting episode, in which the filmmaking nearly destroyed the life and career of Francis Ford Coppola.
Using behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the original cast, Eleanor Coppola narrates with her existing materials.
