A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III
: Would that Roman Coppola, writing and directing his second feature after CQ
over a decade ago, could have switched profiles with Charlie Sheen, such that this could be Coppola's fourth or fifth feature, and the first time we'd heard about Sheen in ages, instead of just one more unrepentant kinda-comeback. I don't say this out of much affection for CQ
, which I recall mainly for the art direction, but dude did cowrite some Wes Anderson movies, and probably isn't a total scumbag. Then again, the idea that he wanted to build a feature around the late-period Charlie Sheen persona does shake my faith a little. Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, and Aubrey Plaza are all along for this one, as if to remind you how many actors you'd rather watch as the lead in a movie.
