Francis Ford Coppola: "Television and movies are now pretty much the same thing"

  • In his new book Live Cinema and Its Techniques, the legendary filmmaker weighs in on TV’s latest golden age. “The days when television represented a console in the home and film was seen in a movie theater seem to be over,” he writes. “Television and movies are now pretty much the same thing, as The Sopranos and Breaking Bad have shown. Cinema can now be from one minute long to one hundred hours, seen anywhere, in the home, the theater, the church or community center, and anywhere around the world, thanks to satellites and digital electronics.”
