Editorial Reviews

Set in a stylized Los Angeles, A GLIMPSE INSIDE THE MIND OF CHARLES SWAN III is a playful comedy of lost love, relationships, revenge fantasies, and Brandy Alexanders. Charles (Charlie Sheen) is a successful graphic designer whose fame, money and charm have provided him with a seemingly perfect life. But when Ivana - the woman of his dreams - leaves him, Charles falls apart. He swirls into comedic, fantasy-inspired reflections upon his colorful past, and all the women that have played a part in it. With the support of his intimates including Kirby (Jason Schwartzman), Saul (Bill Murray) and sister Izzy (Patricia Arquette), Charles begins to come to terms with a life without Ivana.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent movie for fans of lead actors. January 22, 2013
By Bryan
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This movie made me snicker and giggle from start to finish. These are polished actors playing themselves in a surreal world of noire Hollywood. It has such balance to the oddity and amusement. A touch of Coppola, even some Woody Allen perhaps in the story, but definitely Apocalyptic. It is certainly darkly hilarious and odd, tight tennis shorts and all. Pleasing to the eyes in an play-brite neon sort of way. The music is wonderful in how it sets its own scene. I bet you could watch this blindfolded and still understand the tribulations of the lead character.

If you're a quirky customer who enjoys the more cerebral and polished of Hollywood's comedy world, this movie is going to be for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant film! May 13, 2013
By ArtMan
I held my breath until the release date for this film. Love at first trailer site!

HOw could you possibly go wrong when you have SHeen, Swartzman and add the man - Bill Murray on top of it all. It's pure gold!

Funny, great, sexy, and simply beautiful. Liam Hayes wrote a solid, really good soundtrack for it, albeit, not very originally sounding ( I still bought it on cd).

The scene where Charlie's love interest Winnick and Charlie dance and sing and butcher in Portugese is priceless.

Don't trust the reviewrs, including myself. See the film for yourself and you be the judge.

In this day and age of computer graphics, it nice to see an under the radar , small production film , where the human element is better than any amount of CGI

Well done Mr. Coppola and the crew!

Thank you

1.0 out of 5 stars Charles Swan's Mind Isn't Worth a Glimpse After All February 28, 2013
Overwhelming gimmicks and stunt casting dictates this sour indulgent affair. From it's opening credits to the actors breaking the fourth wall in the ending, Coppola succumbs to his own crushing pretension and narcissim. In the lead role, Sheen is hidden behind extravagant costumes and a shallow underdeveloped character. He never surrenders himself to the hapless role. What it doesn't lack in imagination, it surely lacks in a logical and coherent story, as we frolic from set piece to dream sequence to yet another sequence without any rhythm. Quite honestly, I'll fork over $10 to anybody who could explain what was actually happening in this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprise Surprise June 18, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This movie surprised me and I am glad that it did. It looks like a quirky comedy, but there is a lot of depth and emotion that I rarely get to see from Charlie Sheen. It was worth watching, definitely exceeded my expectations.

1.0 out of 5 stars HIS MIND IS EMPTY May 31, 2013
I really can not say how much I couldn't stand this movie. I'm sorry but I have grown weary of writers and directors who think that they can paint themselves as artists by making an incoherent movie with characters no one cares about that flows free form from one scene to the next in an attempt to be different. You're not different you're just bad.

The basic premise here is Charles Swan III (portrayed by Charlie Sheen copying his performances from TWO AND A HALF MEN and ANGER MANAGEMENT) stars as a man in love with a woman who leaves him when she discovers he has a drawer filled with Polaroid pictures of past conquests. Why he feels the need to keep these around in such an open area who knows. Distraught at her leaving he attempts to drive after her, wrecks his car and ends up in the hospital.

From here the movie goes every which way it can. It moves backward and forward in time, it moves into the surreal world of Charles's mind, it bring in characters just made for cameos and it goes nowhere fast. Some reviews of this film have called it genius and others have called it one of the worst films ever made. I tend to fall in the latter group.

I found it difficult just to get through a large portion of this film let alone from beginning to end. I'll be the first to admit I never got there. Something inside of me said that there were better things in this world I could be doing than watching this piece of manure posing as art. Movies like this do little but make me angry when I read about other films that have lingered on shelves for years that sounded good but never got made. Then I realize that someone gave the people behind this movie money to make it and I think why this and not that?

3.0 out of 5 stars ARE YOU A MAN? May 18, 2013
This is the quirky indie I wanted to love, but didn't. Charley Sheen plays Charles Swan III, a type cast role. His girlfriend Ivana (Katheryn Winnick) breaks up with him. Charley is going through the mental phrase where he both wants her back and to "give her a kick." He has mental fantasies about their relationship which is supposed to be revealing psychologically as well as entertaining.

Unfortunately it doesn't achieve any laughter and only a few smiles. The ending lacks the heart warming quality these films normally boast. Funny guy Bill Murray was a bore. Jason Schwartzman who does comedy wasn't funny. Patricia Arquette plays Charley's sister in a poorly written role. The film ending and opening cartoon sequences makes it appear to have been inspired from Monty Python, although it lacks the genius.

This might make do as the fifth film from Redbox rental lot. I wouldn't buy it, even as a Sheen fan.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex. Brief picture/photo nudity.
