Inhaltsangabe: More than any other director, Francis Coppola exemplifies the drive and invention of modern American cinema. Acclaimed since his first Godfather movie in 1972, he went on to win the Palme d'Or at Cannes for The Conversation and to make an unforgettable impact on audiences worldwide with the gripping Vietnam War epic Apocalypse Now. Along with major blockbusters, he has also launched actors' careers including those of Nicholas Cage and Tom Cruise. Since the turn of the new millennium, Coppola has returned to his roots - to the low - budget, personal film, written and directed without the involvement of the major Hollywood studios. He has worked in Romania (for Youth without Youth), in Argentina (for Tetro), and in his home state of California for Twixt. But he also has encouraged the work of other talented film - makers - from his daughter Sofia (Lost in Translation, Marie Antoinette) to the Brazilian director Walter Salles (On the Road) and Robert De Niro (The Good Shepherd). In 2010 he was awarded his sixth Oscar - the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award. Aside from movies, the tireless Coppola has grown ever more committed to wine - making, earning acclaim for his Niebaum - Coppola range and opening a second winery in the Sonoma Valley. Talking exclusively to Peter Cowie for this updated edition of the biography, Coppola looks back on the past twenty years, and reflects on his much - cherished independence, as well as on the state of modern cinema.
Inhaltsangabe: By 1982 Francis Ford Coppola had won five Academy Awards; at the same time he was over $20 million in debt following the disastrous failure of "One from the Heart. "This astute biography critically examines Coppola's singular vision and why it makes such paradoxes not only possible but prevalent in his long turbulent career. At the age of 32 Coppola became a superstar in Hollywood with "The Godfather, " which rapidly climbed to the top of the all-time box-office hits. Two years later he won the coveted Palme d'Or at the Cannes festival for "The Conversation." His savage epic of the Vietnam War, "Apocalypse Now, "established him as the most daring, brilliant filmmaker of his generation. This book not only goes behind the cameras to track the creative and financial turmoil involved in his productions, but offers perceptive analyses of his films, including all three parts of "The Godfather" and the visually stunning remake of "Dracula." Based on three years of research and exclusive interviews with the subject, "Coppola" illuminates the director's rise to prominence, his personal tragedies, intermittent failures, and resurgent successes with telling insights into the shaping of his artistic sensibility. This is a spirited, penetrating study of a man whose films have a strange way of mirroring his own sometimes tempestuous life.
