Francis Ford Coppola


#1

Now, I’m hooked!



I don’t think anyone here likes Rumble Fish as much as I do. But there’s just something about that movie that I like so much. The black and white look of it and the characters are just incredible(The Motorcycle Boy, Rusty James)…











He’s casted Matt Dillon, in the upcoming film “Tetro”!

It’s great to see him come back!

Great flick Bio! This was one of the first Coppola films I ever saw.


#3

Mickey Rourke reminded me of Brando, that’s like his greatest performance ever! And the look of the film is just so incredible. I’m having a hard time finding it on DVD, though. I recorded this movie on my DVR, but I still want the damn DVD! >:(



I found a great tribute video for this movie, it’s awesome:

I remember Francis said he was going for a Citizen Kane look on the film with the B&W and the great camera angles etc. I love the cinematography in this one.


#5

Do you have the Rumble Fish DVD?



I don’t want to buy anything online, I just don’t want to use my CC. I’ll probably just buy it off from a rental store.


#6

Yeah I got the DVD that came out a couple years ago. Tell your parents you want it for Xmas! Quick! :smiley:


#7



$5.99 !!! Man, that’s cheap! I might as well buy it online.


#8

Yep thats the one I have. 5.99? Damn! Thats very cheap!

I’ve never seen the film but that’s a cool video.



Is anyone getting the new Hearts of Darkness dvd that came out recently? I heard it’s good.

Fuck, I have never seen this, but I am gonna make sure that I am gonna! It looks so badass.


#11

It looks kind of like Sin City.

The entire movie is in the ending. That’s all I’m gonna say so I don’t spoil it.

Have anyone of you seen the last movie he directed with Tim Roth ? Youth Without Youth ? I have. It was very Coppola, classic themes he’s interested in, pretty visual (more than a lot of his past movies), very fresh, some flaws but you forget them cause you obviously feel how enthusiast he is to be back in the business. He sid he will only shoot in digital (HD more precisely) now on.



Did you also know that someone got into his house and robbed his laptop with ALL his documents (rare family pics, a lot of unfinished scripts, ocumnts from shootings and so on). And in the laptop was his unfinished script he was working on since 20 years and was about to finally direct. But that’s why he did Youth Withou Youth instead. He said he won’t probably ever do this other big project he wanted to do since it’s now been stolen. So so sad. Who can be so cruel and steal all his documents… :-</E>

Youth Without Youth? - Was that even released here? I haven’t seen it.



And about his script, you would think he’d have a hardcopy of it. Figures.

Oh yeah, maybe it wasn’t released everywhere yet. It was released last month in France. That’s why nobody mentionned it on the forum :stuck_out_tongue:

Does anybody know when it will be released on region 2?



I haven’t seen Rumble Fish, but I’ve seen the Godfather films and Apocalypse Now. Damn good films. Love the look on all of them. I mean, try to imagine the Godfather films without that black/bronze look. Wouldn’t have been the same.


#17

i’ve heard he got the computer back.

that happened in argentina, where he’ll be filming soon,

I hope filming, not taping!

viva 35mm, also video, but if you don’t have a lot of money…


#18

Youth without Youth was ok, great story, but the movie was just ok. My favorite Coppola films are



The Godfather 1 & 2



Apocalypse Now



All three of these movies are masterpieces.

Hey, hey, I went onto iTunes to look for new trailers and found one for Tetro. But it isn’t really a trailer, it was the first three minutes. After the experiment that was Youth Without Youth I’ve just been hoping for a movie to bring Francis Ford Coppola back into the mainstream, I doubt this is it, but it looks gorgeously shot. That’s something going for it. I’m still stoked to see it, the story sounds like something he could really do something really special with.
