An intimate look at the making of Francis Ford Coppola's 1979 classic Apocalypse Now, Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse combines the usual documentary interviews with outtakes from the film and rare documentary footage, some shot on the set by Eleanor Coppola. Not long after the arrival of Francis Ford Coppola and crew in the Philippines, the shooting schedule begins spiraling out of control; the film's cost has soon far surpassed the original budget, with the ending still unwritten.

The making of a film has never been documented with more penetration and truth than in Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse.
As the portrait of an artist in crisis, Hearts of Darkness is unparalleled.
It's a mesmerizing portrait of a production spiraling out of control in the face of personal upheavals and natural disasters, and a filmmaker struggling to hold it together...
There is something very carnal about watching the production fall apart and see the reputation of Coppola hang in the balance.
A phenomenal documentary about one of the most notorious film shoots of all time.
