Last quote by Francis Ford Coppola

Trusting the leadership of huge corporations with America's artistic heritage is a crucial mistake, and can already be seen in the 'monotony' of contemporary major studio cinema. The changes you are making at the FCC will only make the fragile balance between artist and businessman more impossible to maintain. I assure you that none of the films that I or my contemporaries are known and celebrated for could exist today in such a climate.feedback

Francis Ford Coppola quotes

Well he was a great man, aside from an actor. He was a genius, just in what he thought about. And I don't use the term 'genius' very often. In my life I knew two or three people that I would say were geniuses. Marlon was because he thought in a totally unique way. And he was a man filled with love.feedback

Frankly I feel a little shy about it. All my life I wanted to be one of the group. When I was young my father moved many times to where we lived so I never had any friends so I was always an outsider. When you become so celebrated and receive such a wonderful honor as this is, then in a way you are also an outsider in the other end but I'm very proud and honoured and appreciative.feedback

Yeah, they seem to me just like products. I don't think they're made because someone 'has to make them'. They are made because someone has to make some money. No one invests in a film to make something new but to make sure they want to get their money back. Risk is good, risk is how you move forward. But if no one wants a risk then it doesn't interest me.feedback
