Hearts of Darkness was a famous documentary which chronicled the making of Francis Ford Coppola’s epic war film Apocalypse Now.
Rain of Madness is a mockumentary chronicling the fictional war movie that is the subject of the upcoming Ben Stiller comedy Tropic Thunder. A trailer has been released online.
Judging by the trailer. the concept is actually a lot better than it’s execution, but its still definitely worth checking out. I’m just wondering if they filmed an actual full length mockumentary (possibly to appear on the special edition DVD) or does the trailer just exist as its own entity. Because if there was more, wouldn’t that be too meta? I keep hearing nothing but great things about Tropic Thunder. Some of my friends have even seen it twice. As always, I’d be interested to hear what you think in the comments below.
