Francis Ford Coppola: 5-Film Collection

If you had to pick five films to put into a Francis Ford Coppola film collection, which would you pick? Well, it doesn’t matter. Lionsgate did it for you—and they’ve come up with an interesting selection. Two of the five films are the mega-hit Apocalypse Now, with the three remainders being 1974’s The Conversation, 1982’s One From The Heart, and 2009’s Tetro.

Being that these are different films from different time periods, the images are a mixed bag. All are pretty impressive though. Apocalypse Now, Apocalyse Now Redux and Tetro have a 2.35:1 image, with The Conversation presented in the 1.78:1 aspect ratio. One From The Heart has the lone 1.33:1 transfer. All of the films have a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track, with The Conversation adding in the option for DTS-HD Mono. Also, all five of the films have a few extras, but The Conversation and One From The Heart have the best selection overall.

Rating: R (PG for The Conversation)
Runtime: 153 minutes (Apocalypse Now), 202 minutes (Apocalypse Now Redux), 127 minutes (Tetro), 113 minutes (The Conversation), 100 minutes (One From The Heart)
Total Number of Discs: 5
Studio: Lionsgate
