This documentary provides a much deeper look inside Apocalypse now than anything else could. It contains deleted scenes from the film, a look inside the mind and character of Coppola, and the many, many, many problems that were encountered. While recommended for those familiar with Apocalypse Now, it is a great film to watch even if you are not familiar with the original film.
