Francis Ford Coppola has had an interesting roller coaster filmmaking career. He is considered one of the best filmmakers of all time with directing films such as The Godfather, The Godfather Part II, Apocalypse Now, and The Conversation.
However, the director also made some movie mistakes and duds in his career. The video essay below from Patrick (H) Willems dives into the rise and fall and rise again of Coppola. It explores his ups and downs and reminds us of what he accomplished in his career and the kind of talent that he has. It also includes details on his working relationship and friendship with George Lucas.
This video actually included a good amount of information that I didn’t know about the director before, so maybe some of you will learn something new from it as well!
