A three-time nominee for the Best Film Editing Oscar, Richard Marks came of age with the "new" Hollywood of the late 1960s, but, like his frequent collaborator in the 70s, Francis Ford Coppola, has gone on to prove himself a master of the classical language. As Coppola was ingeniously reasserting the classical form with "The Godfather," Marks was cutting his teeth with his first editing job, "Parades" (both 1972). Two years later, they teamed up (with collaboration from Peter Zinner and Barry Malkin) to produce one of the most smoothly edited films of any period, "The Godfather, Part II," which not only functioned in the classical mode, but managed to cut between two time periods in an impressively modern fashion. Marks continued his association with Coppola and earned his first Oscar nomination for his stunning work on "Apocalypse Now" (1979).
