Animated Interview With Francis Ford Coppola On Death, Solitude


(via) Oddly, watching Francis Ford Coppola’s 1979 Vietnam epic (and Joseph Conrad riff) Apocalypse Now is a Christmas tradition in our household. I don’t know how it started, but there it is. Apparently, we like the smell of napalm in the morning. Anyway, in my annual holiday search for the movie on the internet I stumbled on this 1996 interview with the director, which has been cleverly animated by Blank on Blank. In it, a very frank and philosophical Coppola talks about solitude, mortality, making movies like The Godfather, and how his own life has influenced his filmmaking decisions. It was the one Christmas gift that didn’t fit under the tree, and I think you might enjoy it.
