Eleanor entrevista Dennis

Mentre el seu marit rodava la immensa Apocalypse Now, Eleanor Coppola anotava les seves vivències a Filipines. No va acabar el documental que es proposava, però els seus escrits es van transformar en un llibre.

Trenta anys després, potser som més a prop d'aquesta idea de Hopper:
October 17 (1976), Pagsanjan

I shot an interview with Dennis Hopper. One of the things he said that interested me the most was he thought filmmaking was in the same phase of development that art during the cathedral-building period. When they build those great cathedrals in Europe, they employed stonemasons, engineers, fresco painters, etc., and created the work through the combined talents of many. By the nineteenth century, art evolved to the point where the major work of the day was being done by individual artists working alone at an easel. Dennis was making the point that now filmmaking involves the talents of many departments and perhaps eventually major films will be made by one person with a video port-a-pack.
