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.
It was briefly considered to replace the voice of Eleanor Coppola with that of a professional actress, but that was rejected.
Francis Ford Coppola:
There were too many of us, we had access to too much equipment, too much money, and little by little we went insane.
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.
