The Talks interview


Coppola gives an interview to The Talks. He discusses his disinterest in art, the definition of success, and what interests him.

I want to learn something. That’s the real pleasure, when you understand an idea or you answer a question. When I was a little boy I used to think you could get all the answers to all the questions. I thought that you could learn who God is and he will answer why he made me. You think you are going to get those answers but you don’t. (Laughs)
