Making you an offer your mind can't refuse


Francis Ford Coppola, father of the Godfather and maker of wine, claims that his newest film Youth Without Youth is "all about" consciousness. Based on a novella by Mircea Eliade, a Romanian-born historian of religion, who wrote about myth, ritual, yoga, shamanism and folklore and the divide between how time is experienced by so-called primitive man and his modern counterpart, knowledge, perception, thought, and reality are all at play in Coppola's attempt to translate the mind to the movie screen.
