1979 Francis Ford Coppola
Coppola’s magnificent and plain thrilling hit movie, "Apocalypse Now", starring Martin Sheen and Robert Duvall, ranked on the "Top 100 Movie Lists". Hansen is absolutely brilliant in his 16-minute pyrotechnics guitar and bass tracks creating awesome sounds depicting machines of war guns and bombs.
In 2002, longtime friend Nicholas Cage asked Hansen
to act and perform in his directorial debut the movie
“Sonny” starring James Franco, Mena Suvari, Harry
Dean Stanton, and Nicholas Cage. Hansen immediately
accepted traveling to New Orleans for the cameo
appearance, acting and performing his original
composition “Angel Hair Trigger” written for the movie.
