Watch: Robert Rodriguez's 45-Minute Talk With Francis Ford Coppola About His Films, Career, And Much More

Over on the El Rey network, Robert Rodriguez has been putting together a growing number of insightful filmmaker talks with his “The Director’s Chair” series. So far, John Carpenter, Guillermo del Toro, and Quentin Tarantino have sat down in conversation with Rodriguez, and the latest director to stop by, is none other than the legendary Francis Ford Coppola.

Across forty-five minutes, the always interesting Coppola recounts the origins of his fascination with storytelling (comparing himself to Max Fischer from “Rushmore” at one point), various aspects of shooting “The Godfather” (including collapsing when Paramount told him he couldn’t hire Marlon Brando), the three stipulations he had before agreeing to make the sequel, and more. There’s lots to take in and this is a must watch for any cinephile, so take a break and watch below.
