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.
Francis Ford Coppola disagrees with his portrayal, and initially refused to release the documentary on DVD. It was finally released on DVD in 2007, with an optional Coppola commentary track. In 2010, it was released in the "Full Disclosure" Blu-ray edition of Apocalypse Now (1979).
Francis Ford Coppola:
If Marty dies, I wanna hear that everything's okay, until I say, "Marty is dead."
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.
