In Francis Ford Coppola’s new film “Megalopolis,” he shares a quote that holds deep meaning for him: “When we take a leap into the unknown, we show that we’re free.” Sitting on a terrace in Cannes after the film’s premiere, Coppola explains how making this movie was a way to demonstrate his freedom to himself and to those who doubted him.

Despite his grin, he admits, “I don’t recommend it.” “Megalopolis,” Coppola’s first film in 13 years, has been met with mixed reviews since it premiered at Cannes.

Some call it a mistake or a bold, self-funded risk. But regardless of how its unusual elements fit together, the film stands as a monumental expression from one of America’s most innovative filmmakers, urging the courage to dream big.

For Coppola, now 85, “Megalopolis” represents a vision he’s pursued passionately for nearly four decades. After the credits rolled and the audience applauded, Coppola took the stage to emphasize themes of unity and concern for future generations.

“My hope is that this movie could spark conversations,” he says, envisioning people discussing whether our current society is the only option and how it might be improved. “If they talk about it, they will. That’s my dream.”
