| Original Score: A
A fascinating 1991 postmortem on the making of Francis Coppola's Apocalypse Now.
At once anecdotal and revealing, this excellent film both illuminates the catastrophes that beset one particular project, and shows, by way of comparison, exactly what American film has foregone since the '70s.
There have been few sharper portraits of the film maker as alchemist than Hearts of Darkness: A Film Maker's Apocalypse.
| Original Score: 4/5
The making of a film has never been documented with more penetration and truth than in Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
As the portrait of an artist in crisis, Hearts of Darkness is unparalleled.
Harrowing and funny, a fine film on its own, Hearts leaves us with a new appreciation for the Vietnam War epic it documents.
