FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA. Jeff Menne. University of Illinois Press, Champaign, 2014. Contemporary Film Directors. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9780252080371 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Hardcover edition also available; see Worldwide 162061. Publisher's description: Acclaimed as one of the most influential and innovative American directors, Francis Ford Coppola is also lionized as a maverick auteur at war with Hollywood's power structure and an ardent critic of the postindustrial corporate America it reflects. However, Jeff Menne argues that Coppola exemplifies the new breed of creative corporate person and sees the director's oeuvre as vital for reimagining the corporation in the transformation of Hollywood. Reading auteur theory as the new American business theory, Menne reveals how Coppola's vision of a new kind of company has transformed the worker into a liberated and well-utilized artist, but has also commodified individual creativity at a level unprecedented in corporate history.
