You Have to Fail a Little: On Hearts of Darkness

Recently, I wrote about failure, writing, and female directors over at Bright Wall/Dark Room, an online film magazine. I wrote about these topics in the context of one of my favorite documentaries, Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse, which is about the making of Francis Ford Coppola’s Vietnam epic, Apocalypse Now.
