Every Francis Ford Coppola Movie, Ranked

by Nick Hyman — 

When the name Francis Ford Coppola is invoked, the filmmaker's iconic Godfather trilogy (and his wine) may be paramount, but his massive filmography is replete with all-time classics, some lesser-known curios, and a few experimental head-scratchers.

This year, Coppola returns to the movies after a 13-year absence with a self-financed, $120 million passion project: Megalopolis, which just played in competition at the 77th Cannes Film Festival. Coppola has been developing the sci-fi epic since 1983, and it centers on a destroyed Manhattan-esque metropolis and an architect (Adam Driver) who attempts to rebuild the city by controlling time and those that stand in his way. The film was slow to find distribution, and it remains to be seen whether it will join Coppola's handful of masterpieces.

Continue below as we rank that film and all of Coppola's movies from worst to best by Metascore (a number from 0 to 100 that reflects the consensus opinion of top professional film critics). Note that a few Coppola projects are not represented in this list, including the Disney theme park short Captain EO and his contribution to a 1989 anthology film, New York Stories.
