Charles Swan's Mind Isn't Worth a Glimpse After All,
This review is from: A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III (DVD)
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.

I agree, seriously, how many lines are you going to let Charlie Sheen adlib! It could have been good with more direction. I can't really fault the story line. And Patricia A. was amazing. But come on, it was this never ending circle. And I hated when the actors introduced themselves at the end. I don't watch a movie because I like Charlie Sheen. I watch a movie because I want to escape. Please don't drag me in. A minus and skip if you are considering.
