While this film might be moderately interesting to those who don't know much about '70's American cinema, it's a dud to anyone who has seen most of the landmark films of that decade. Coppola,Scorsese, etc. are revered in this Docu, and you have to wonder if the interviewers intentionally skipped over some of the problems of a directors having too much freedom. Only Scorsese gives some mention of 'New York, New York' being a dud, while there's no mention of half the insanity that went on during Coppola's 'Apocalypse Now', although it's been well documented in the film "Hearts of Darkness".
If you want to watch something better, buy "Easy Riders, Raging Bulls". If you want something that involves just as much selective memory, but a heck of a lot more fun to watch, get "The Kid Stays in the Picture".
