Cuatro / cinq / et, je t'emmerde, FFC!

Paramount has officially announced the long-overdue documentary Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse for the 20th of November. The film serves as a wonderful companion piece to Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now, a lot like Burden of Dreams to Fitzcarraldo (though I don't think Apocalypse Now is shitty, as I do about Fitzcarraldo).

UPDATE: And, Eclipse has announced Akira Kurosawa's I Live in Fear as part of January's Eclipse series, which will include Postwar Kurosawa films.

UPDATE 2: Shut the fuck up Francis Ford Coppola. You've probably heard about him bitching about Jack Nicholson, Al Pacino, and Robert De Niro... and, as I'm sure many people have noted, this reeks of hypocrisy. Sure, any and all cinephiles are probably less-than-pleased with any of the work those three have done in the past decade or so... but, you!? Wasn't your last movie an adaptation of a John Grisham novel? And before that, a shitty comedy with Robin Williams? Wasn't Fran Drescher and Jennifer Lopez in that too? Also, thanks for re-editing and bringing that piece of ass The Legend of Suriyothai to the US. It was groundbreaking... oh wait, no, it just sucked. Stay in your vineyard and shut up, Francis; you're actually making me defend Jack "Anger Management" Nicholson, Al "Simone" Pacino, and Robert "Hide and Seek" De Niro. Thanks a lot.
