Summary: The Godfather trilogy, The Conversation, Apocalypse Now-the landscape of American cinema owes much of its shape to these films, which helped to reinvent the gangster, suspense, and war genres. This program features their maker, Francis Ford Coppola, in a candid and inspiring interview. Sharing pre-production and on-set experiences from his past-including Marlon Brando's playful transformation into Vito Corleone and the disappointing "live cinema" shot plan intended for One from the Heart-Coppola goes on to detail his filmmaking philosophy: take artistic risks, provide actors with the tools they need, and diversify project choices as much as possible. His early association with Roger Corman is another engaging topic.
