We come away from the documentary with a profound admiration for Coppola, if only because he didn't kill himself or someone else.

There is something very carnal about watching the production fall apart and see the reputation of Coppola hang in the balance.

Hearts of Darkness gives a privileged glimpse of the artist's hell, but it also says something about grace.
