A glimpse of rubbish

OUT NOW! A GLIMPSE INTO THE MIND OF CHARLES SWAN III is neither entertaining nor fun despite its Wes Anderson-inspired cast.

Neither his pedigree, nor his cast, nor his experience working with Wes Anderson was able to guide director Coppola through this irritating blend of whimsy and self-referential navel contemplation centered on advertising exec Charlie Swan (Charlie Sheen) as he struggles with mild substance abuse and dwindling self esteem after breaking up with a remarkably insipid girlfriend by self-indulging in some pretty obtuse break-out fantasies. Reality check, please.

 A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III | Directed by Roman Coppola (USA 2012) with Charlie Sheen, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray. Starts May 2
