This interview was recorded on July 28, 1996 when Francis Ford Coppola was promoting the film, Jack, starring Robin Williams.
“Death is on the back of everyone’s minds whether they want to admit it or not. We move through life very fast and it’s not a matter of how long you live it’s a matter of how well you live. But that’s the theme sort of Camus’ The Happy Death. There are people who die young but they die happy because they’ve done a whole lifetime’s worth. Death is a funny thing and it’s obviously on the back of everyone’s minds or their psychology whether they want to admit it or not.”
