The story is undoubtedly very interesting. It is intriguing to watch Coppola as he goes through various emotions and stages of control throughout the filmmaking process. That being said, I didn't think that it was presented in the most effective way. For example, there were some issues with sound. I also think that the editing was a little odd, cutting between various storytelling methods without much rhythm or reason. Still, the story overcomes the flaws in the way it is presented to make it a good film overall.
I thought that "Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse" was a good documentary, but it could have been better if it were assembled slightly differently. If you are a fan of Coppola's films, it offers some great insight into his creative process.
