Tribute to Apocalypse Now – Heart of Coppola

In honor of the 33rd anniversary of Apocalypse Now, film editor Brian Caroll put this mash up together. It’s a gem. Makes me want to go back and watch the movie and the epic documentary Hearts of Darkness around the making of the famously plagued and problematic – but ultimately brilliant film.

Coppola’s quotes, especially the one that Caroll ends the tribute with, are gold. Here are a few of my favorites:

“I want a character of a monumental nature, who is struggling with the extremities of his soul, and he is struggling with them on such a level, that you are in awe of it. And he is destroyed by them.”

“Nothing is so terrible as a pretentious movie. A movie that aspires for something really terrific and doesn’t pull it off is shit. Its scum. [That’s the] filmmaker’s greatest horror. Is to be pretentious.”

“The great hope is that people who wouldn’t normally make films will be making them. Suddenly, one day some little fat girl in Ohio is going to be the new Mozart and make a beautiful film with her father’s camera and for once the so called professionalism about movies will be destroyed forever – and it will really become an art form.”

To see more of Brian Carroll’s work – head over to his Vimeo or YouTube channels.

    An epic movie, scheduled to be shot over six weeks; it ultimately ended up taking 16 months. Martin Sheen having a near fatal heart attack during the filming certainly added to the tension of the shoot. Interesting trivia in IMDB

    I am not surprised that this is a truth now, although often I think that there are additional ways of doing it. I have attempted many approaches up previously, and none of them has worked effectively. I will try this technique next.

    Just utilised this to wax my bf’s back! Worked actually nicely! It has for being pretty awesome to work nicely. Also nice when it can be cooler mainly because it turns into a paste of sorts & you cannot just pull hairs out. My bf did not look to mind the soreness also significantly. I cooked mine within the microwave for 2 minutes & let it interesting for about 10. Will likely be using it yet again!
