Francis Ford Coppola hasn't written an origional screenplay and directed it since 1974's The Conversation starring Gene Hackmen, a movie he made between The Godfather and The Godfather II. I just watched The Conversation for the first time this year and it instantly became my favorite of all his films.
Now he's written and directed Tetro, a new movie starring Vincent Gallo. Vincent, Moterfucking, Gallo! It comes out this June. Here's the trailer.
