  1. Ştefan Iancu's rating of the film Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

    Harvey Keitel got fired. Brando showed up overweight and unprepared. Sheen had a heart attack and nearly died. And storms destroyed many of the sets. Has a better film ever been made from worse circumstances?

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

    Un film passionnant pour tout cinéphile. La démarche est pertinente, les témoignages instructifs, bref un documentaire de première qualité... www.cinefiches.com

  3. smndvdcl's rating of the film Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

    The irony is that alleged 'spectacular failures' can be the greatest of critical successes. 'Apocalypse Now' is rightfully considered a masterpiece, regardless of the litany of issues on set. When a director aims so high, it is impossible to achieve every goal of the vision, but the potency of the Conrad adaptation is without question. Along 'Lost in La Mancha', HoD: AFA remains indispensable for aspiring filmmakers.

  4. ARNMG's rating of the film Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

    that ending wishes could have been true...

  5. Dzernera's rating of the film Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

    This surely increased my understanding on how complex Apocalypse Now is. One part of it is the movie itself – the final product and its further influence, but as amazing are the mental & physical challenges Coppola & and his team had to overcome to make this idea come true. Thus this documentary becomes good additional material to the movie which simply mesmerizes the viewer and invites to find out more and more

  6. Dominic Simard-Jean's rating of the film Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

    I think the real moral of this film is to always go forward: even if you fuck up, even if you strive for something that is way bigger than what you can achieve, even if it seems that life refuses all of the chances you take... the only thing to do is to go forward.

  7. thomasjeff16's rating of the film Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

    Some people never go crazy. Thank God, Francis did.

  8. Ginarley's rating of the film Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

    A thoroughly enjoyable and well told documentary about the making of a crazy film. I definitely enjoyed this more than the movie itself, and appreciated the insight into the movie. This reminds me a lot of Burdens of Dreams and achieves much the same thing in a very different context.

  9. lamouchequilouche's rating of the film Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

    Hearts of Darkness is an unusual documentary feature about the strenuous and monumental making of Francis Ford Coppola's epic masterpiece Apocalypse Now. Enlightening, profound and highly entertaining.

  10. MS1915's rating of the film Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

    A great documentary on a great film. What more could you want?

  11. Ruiz Buñuel's rating of the film Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

    Francis Ford Coppola shouldn't be so afraid to fail. I don't agree with him that a pretentious failure is the worst of the worst. What's worse is a film that isn't trying to do anything.

  12. Tiago Assis's rating of the film Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

    Almost as good as the movie.

  13. Ben Dooley's rating of the film Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

    A fascinating insiders' portrait of Apocalypse Now that it seems amazing even exists, thanks to Coppola's wife Eleanor secretly filming him going 'slowly crazy'... It shows how while a film of this scale and openness needs a visionary director, their role is as just one part of a team pulling it in many directions. And then there's 'fate' - weather, sickness, the temperament of actors... Who'd be a director!

  14. Waxamillion's rating of the film Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

    Brilliant insight into Coppola, Apocalypse Now, the crew, the actors and the pressure or film making. Loved that this film is from Eleanor's perspective. It is a beautiful story of a lady seeing her fella at his best and at his most vulnerable. I loved the way she captured such intimate moments. Great movie.

  16. NenaNadine's rating of the film Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

    It actually made me dislike Apocalypse Now a little with how Marlon Brando was.

  17. emichan's rating of the film Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

    You gotta appreciate Coppola's effort.

  18. Inner Pattern's rating of the film Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

    I know this is may provoke some 'Wtf' comments but I actually prefer this documentary to the actual film Apocalypse Now. One of the best 'making-of' documentaries ever if not the best.

  19. Joe DiCastro's rating of the film Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

    One of the best documentaries about another film I've ever seen.

  20. Christian Kieffer's rating of the film Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

  21. Partner in der Kriminalität's rating of the film Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

    So Marlon Brando was kinda a dick huh? Don't get me wrong he was perfect for the part, but jeez he didn't lose weight like he said he would, he didn't want to change any scheduling, he couldn't even read a simple book. Instead he wants to discuss what Coppola wants...and get paid for it.

  22. Stephen Campbell's rating of the film Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

    Amazing Doc of an Amazing film and i think the French plantation scenes do work
