Documentary that chronicles how Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now (1979) was plagued by extraordinary script, shooting, budget, and casting problems--nearly destroying the life and career of the celebrated director.
Included among the "1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die", edited by Steven Schneider.
Francis Ford Coppola:
First of all, I call this whole movie the Idiodyssey. None of my tools, none of my tricks, none of my ways of doing things works for this ending. I have tried so many times that I know I can't do it. It might be a big victory to know that I can't do...
In the end credits for musical listings under the Doors song The End, Elektra (Records) is misspelled (as "Electra.")
The DVD is missing a mention of Harvey Keitel as Willard and a scene of Coppola singing Anything Goes is watered down as well.
