Francis Ford Coppola (USA, b. 1939) is the oldest of the generation of 'movie brats', including Scorsese and Spielberg, who breathed new life into the Hollywood of the 1970s.

He revived the glory of the studio age with the legendary Godfather saga (1972 – 90), explored the soul of America at war in Vietnam with Apocalypse Now (1979) and has directed some of the greatest actors, including Brando, Pacino and De Niro. Having outgrown the role of director decreed by the major studios, he is now an independent producer and continues to direct films with undimmed brilliance (Tetro, 2009).

'modern directors are briefly and brilliantly profiled in sharp prose and smart pictures in these movie master-classes for film buffs and beginners.' -- Saga

'short, beautifully illustrated essays on great directors' -- The Times

'exceptional value .. lively and accessible ... indispensable' -- Obessed with Film.com

'bargain price. Does an already saturated market need yet more auteur guides? On this evidence, yes. ... briskly paced, scalpel-sharp primers ...The collective quality is high, the tone scholarly but not intimidating. ... A triumph of layout as much as content, each book glows with gorgeous on- and off-screen archive photography... Magnifique.' -- Total Film
