Revisiting Coppola –

AMC has been running Godfather 1 & 2 these past few weeks and it’s reminded me of Coppola’s genius. I dug up this old interview with him discussing his director’s book and how he adapted Mario Buzo’s trilogy.

Also of interest, this recent interview via 99 Percent where Coppola distills his own personal manifesto to three rules:

  1. Write & direct original screenplays.
  2. Make them with the most modern technology available.
  3. Self-finance them.
