Editorial Reviews

Set in a stylized Los Angeles, 'A GLIMPSE INSIDE THE MIND OF CHARLES SWAN III' is a playful comedy of lost love, friendship, 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. When his true love, a perplexing beauty named Ivana, suddenly breaks off their relationship, Charles' life falls apart and he swirls into a downward spiral of doubt, confusion and reflection. With the support of his loyal intimates-- Kirby (Jason Schwartzman), Saul (Bill Murray), and his sister, Izzy (Patricia Arquette) -- he begins the hard road of self-evaluation to come to terms with a life without Ivana. The film begs the question: Is it possible to love and hate someone at the same time?

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!

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?

A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan is a quirky independent film that is very colorful but lacks the emotional connection with its characters that I think the director was looking for. The movie is entertaining and very fun in spots but overall falls somewhat flat. Charlie Sheen is actually very good as the womanizing and troubled Charles Swan but the rest of the cast really didn't have to much to work with. I feel this really could have been a gem but just does not get there. I did enjoy watching it though and the movie is very entertaining just don't expect too much.

I like Coppola movies and I like the way the cast works but this just doesn't come across well. The sound track is out of sync with the story and there is some very poor crash cuts that gives the story a choppy feeling. I think some of the story may parallel Billy Murry's actual life, but without the happy ending. Charley and Jason do a good job, but it just doesn't ignite like some other films that Murry and Schwartzman have made like the Life Aquatic or Rushmore; different direction I know, but that's what I was expecting. I watched it three times and only during the third time did it come close to clicking. I'm sure they all have more good stories left in them to put down on film.

Sorry I did not get it. What a waste of great talents...I was so looking forward to dark horse cult flic but instead I got a vacuous cavalcade of Sheenisms. How did the family allow Roman to get away with such an immature exercise? Could i just add that the music was simply atrocious and I can't believe it wasn't a purposeful joke!

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

I just caught the last 30-40 min of this movie and I'm glad I missed the rest of or rented it. Had some great actors. Charlie Sheen is still on the fence. I use to enjoy his movies, but this was just trying to bring in an audience using his celebrity status(lol). As others have said at one time I loved his work but now it seems he isn't trying, specially this film. He's just walking through the movie without giving anything to the character, emptions or whatever. Charlie we miss your talent and I'm talking about beforeal 2 1/2 men, which also didn't have a lot of depth. But at least he was showing a bit of his old comedic self. It's too bad. He comes from a talented family and you can only ride those coattails for so long.
