This is more than just a special feature on the blu ray I own for Apocalypse Now. This is a full documentary produced in 1991 about how hectic this film's production was. It reminds me a lot of the documentary behind The Shining. It isn't just a bunch of people talking about how perfect everything is and how they loved every moment during production. This is no publicity stunt, instead you're hearing a lot of trouble while making an amazing film. You see how much of a dick Francis Ford Coppola can be, how much of a pain Marlon Brando can be, and how real some of the scenes were (ahem, ox killing). Really interesting if you're into film production.
