Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse ★★★½

A wonderful documentary about how Apocalypse Now came about by miracles. All the setbacks that can happen to a movie happen, and what comes out as a result is Apocalypse Now. Incredible.

Also, Cappola's speech at the end of the documentary shows why he is so big and visionary.

To me, the great hope is that now these little 8mm video recorders and stuff have come out, and some... just people who normally wouldn't make movies are going to be making them. And you know, suddenly, one day some little fat girl in Ohio is going to be the new Mozart, you know, and make a beautiful film with her little father's camera recorder. And for once, the so-called professionalism about movies will be destroyed, forever. And it will really become an art form. That's my opinion.
