Francis Ford Coppola Films - ranked

Movie list created by bfpierce Avatar

Films directed (and usually both produced and written by -- or co-written with -- the great and legendary filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola. As with the similar entries in this series, the films listed are arranged from most favorite to least but doesn't necessarily mean I actively dislike and lower ranked movie. Not exactly true in this case. but in at least 1 previous director's ranking I genuinely like every film on the list and it become simply a challenge at arranging them in both an honest order of preference and in a way that at least suggestion a specific take on their body of work, who they are as artists.

Also, as before, films I have not seen, I include nonetheless at the end of the list and will rank them upon first viewing. In Mr. Coppola's case that happens to true of his first and last (to date theatrical features.

Finally, regarding Mr. Coppola's work specifically, I have chosen to exclude all but one of the movies he worked on under Roger Corman at American International in the early-mid '69s (on the one included he receives on-screen credit as the "writer-director") as well as the various one-off, oddball projects he has helped bring to existence such as the 3D film elements he directed for Disney's live show presentation of "Captain Eo", with producer George Lucas and star Michael Jackson (as well as any of the multiple projects on which he has only a producer's credit); although, again, there is an exception here as well with the inclusion of an anthology feature to which he contributed one short he produced and directed (and co-wrote with his daughter Sofia).
