FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA
(1939 - ), American

Image

"Coppola restlessly veers between commercial and personal projects, social criticism and a celebration of ritual tradition; as an artist he is as divided a personality as many of his creations. That's why, perhaps, his finest work is ironic and ambivalent: the cross-cutting between baptism and bloody murder in The Godfather, the conflict between professionalism and ethics in The Conversation, the idea that war can be horrific and exciting in Apocalypse Now."
-The Director's Vision

"No American career has had such endless, entertaining turmoil, or says as much about making movies in America now. No one retains so many jubilant traits of the kid moviemaker, or has inspired darker comments."
-The New Biographical Dictionary of Film

"You have to really be courageous about your instincts and your ideas. Otherwise you'll just knuckle under, and things that might have been memorable will be lost."
- Francis Ford Coppola

Honestly, it's if he sold his soul to be a great director only during the '70s.

As easy as it is to poke fun of Keanu, I did like him in the Bill & Ted movies, and also that Kevin Kline movie I Love You To Death where he and William Hurt played preposterously stupid hitmen. Those were the rare occasions when he was a good casting choice.

He was passable in Street Kings, if memory serves me. I might have been distracted by Forest Whitaker devouring the scenery, though.

I thought Keanu was ok in My Own Private Idaho.

Though River Pheonix really deserved a better actor to work with.
