Imaginative fun - A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III review by AER

Spoiler Alert

This film reflects the creative chaos that rules the mind of the central character and the director/writer Roman Coppola. With a laidback approach to narrative, Charlie Sheen is perfect as the love-lorn, half-bored Charles Swan III, a multi-millionaire graphic designer who is getting over a breakup. We venture into the minds of the central characters incl. Charlie, Kirby (his BFF) and one or two others. Like Charles, the film wants for nothing visually and creatively . Some scenes are very funny, but it doesn't amount to very much except to a zany brainstorm, where every idea stuck and nothing was rejected. Charlie Sheen is smooth and zoned out - totally brilliant.

Charles Swan III is part of that sub-genre dominated by Spike Jonze & Charlie Kaufman - films like Stranger Than Fiction, Being John Malkvoich, Her etc... This is less clever but who cares - it's a breezy 80+ minutes.

Cringy last minute though. But I forgive a film with this many ideas. The trailer makes it look like a disaster - but it's just the trailer that's disastrous showing the punchline to some good jokes with no context.

Recommended if you want something dazzling, quirky and you've missed seeing Charlie Sheen do his 'thing'...
