Comments Francis Ford Coppola: A Filmmaker's Life

  • Cliff

    I read this after I discovered the Godfather movies and Apocalypse Now, both of which changed the way I looked at film. Anyhow, Coppola is an interesting man, although like most people involved in entertainment, the background of the show is less interesting then the show, although that's arguably not true in in the case of Apocalypse Now (the original star dropped ou,his replacement had a heart attack, and the set was hit with a Hurricane, among other things).Still, ultimately, it's for fans.

    Coppola famously started at the top and worked his way down.

    Anecdotal and predictably structured around each of the director's films, but a pretty solid overview of the life and works; a good introductory book on Coppola for the curious who haven't already heard the stories. Would love an updated edition that covers 2000-Present, his latter works are of equal interest to me, if not general audiences.
