Notes: The Making of Apocalypse Now by Eleanor Coppola

Notes: The Making of Apocalypse Now


Notes: The Making of Apocalypse Now by Eleanor Coppola

'It may be the most lucid account of the strain of epic moviemaking that we'll ever get. At it's center there's a great artist-hero caught in a trap - struggling to find the theme of the picture he's already shooting.' Pauline Kael, New Yorker In the Spring of 1976, Eleanor Coppola, her husband, Francis Ford Coppola, and their children left California for the Philippines, where Apocalypse Now was to be filmed. As the months stretched into years, Eleanor Coppola's Notes became an extraordinary record not only of the making of a movie, but of the emotional and physical price exacted from all who participated in it.
