Heading into the 1980’s Francis Ford Coppola was at the top of his game with massive critical and commercial successes in films such as The Godfather, and Apocalypse Now. He decided to open his own studio and change the way films would be made. He poured his heart, soul, and money into it. The film he created was a visual feast and a stunning creation.
