That Other Coppola

Where have you gone, Francis Ford Coppola? It’s been 10 years since your last movie, The Rainmaker, and 15 years since one of your films has even been on the cultural radar (1992’s uneven Dracula). Hell, your daughter has eclipsed you at this point.

Well, I recently came across the Web site for Coppola’s new film, Youth Without Youth, a “pre-WWII drama where a life-changing incident turns a professor (Bruno Ganz) into a fugitive.” (It’s tentatively slated for a fall 2007 release.) The site itself is spare to the point of barely existing, but there’s a brief, interesting diary section that finds the director in a candid and contemplative mood about his career.
