It does a good job of painting an honest portrait of out-of-control egos and the excess of Hollywood in the '70s, while also being informative and entertaining.

A fascinating 1991 postmortem on the making of Francis Coppola's Apocalypse Now.

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

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