Hearts of farceness
15 November 2020 | by joshmorganperoSee all my reviews

The only way I can reason the existence of this is that it must be a spoof on Hearts of Darkness ('91). An acclaimed director following up a hugely successful movie and way over his head in his next project. Even down to the wife documenting the experience. It was a formula that worked before, so why not? Except, Apocalypse Now was an amazing film with (dare I say) an even more interesting production back story. Which is why that documentary worked and this one did not. This to me is the product of a cocky director just kind of winging his next project based on his clout. And I think adding this documentary idea along with it is proof that he knew the movie wouldn't be good, so he tried to at least get something creative and interesting out of it. Except, it's a blatant rip off and all it did was expose himself to being an unoriginal giant man baby, completely turning off his audience to anything that might have been interesting about him in the first place. One of the main reasons I have no faith in Nicolas Winding Refn anymore. Drive will forever be a classic. Hopefully he can find that stroke again. Just hope he doesn't feel the need to document it.
