Personal Quote:

[on Francis Ford Coppola]: Coppola composes movies as Wagner composed operas, setting primal conflicts to soaring emotional lines. The force of his will is as imposing as the range of his art. He goes for majesty over subtlety and, often as not, finds what he's looking for. See more »


Most of the films he chooses on his top ten list are fantasy films. See more »
