'Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse' (1991) George Hickenlooper and Fax Behr's documentary assembled from Eleanor Coppola's home movies taken on the set of "Apocalypse Now" caused a sensation when it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. It later aired for the first time in the U.S. on telelvision and won a series of documentary awards. But despite "Apocalypse Now's" recent "Redux," the documentary on its making still exists only on VHS.
