DES’s review published on Letterboxd :
I got stressed for Francis Ford Coppola watching this , what a nightmare / literally seems like hell
I remember when I was very very young / growing up, I had learned that the Director of The Godfather was still alive and making movies (this was in 90s) , and yet the movies weren’t particularly good, certainly no match for his earlier work. What had happened to him, I wondered ?
Now I know / I totally get it.
I wonder if it was worth it. I need to rewatch Apocalypse Now, but I wonder if his career would have had more longevity if he had never made it. It took the life out of him. He’s never been the same filmmaker or person.
