Hearts of Darkness

Hearts of Darkness

Finally available on DVD, Hearts of Darkness - A Filmmaker's Apocalypse ($22) is an amazingly raw, intense, and in-depth look at the struggles of Francis Ford Coppola's production of Apocalypse Now. The film mixes behind-the-scenes footage of the production, shot by Coppola's wife Eleanor, with interviews of the cast and crew, shot 10 years later. From the rampant drug use and battles with the weather and Philippine government, to Martin Sheen's on-set heart attack, Darkness is an indispensable look at the art of filmmaking, and a must-see for anyone interested in film.
