Posted 4 years ago by myetvmedia

Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III, stars Charlie Sheen (Swan), Jason Schwartzman (Kirby), Bill Murray (Saul), Katheryn Winnick (Ivana), and Patricia Arquette (Saul’s sister Izzy). It is a comedy with a love story, from writer, producer and director Roman CoppolaCoppola is presently co-nominated for an Academy Award for the screenplay Moonrise Kingdom which he co-wrote withWes Anderson. The Coppola name and legacy is easily recognized in the world of film, this is Roman Coppola’s second feature film. The first was The Darjeeling Limited also co-written with his friendWes Anderson. The film is set in a stylized Los Angeles, where a successful and famed graphic designer Swan discovers that success is fleeting and love is not to be taken for granted.

If you are a Charlie Sheen fan this is the movie for you. Sheen does what he does best, inhabiting a character (Swan), who is primarily engaged with himself, his drinking, smoking and discussions of his sexual escapades. It is definitely a quirky film with a bit of a glorified ‘boys club’ feel to it.

Roman Coppola’s other projects were much more compelling, this script was less vigorous than his past work. It is a playful and lighthearted romp. Swan (Sheen) has it easy, his life blessed with fame, money and his own brand of charm. However, life is unpredictable and Swan is about to discover that his happiness is quite fragile. His beautiful ladylove, Ivana (Canadian actor Katheryn Winnick), decides to suddenly end their relationship leaving Swan suddenly out of sorts with time for some greatly needed introspection.  Swan must struggle to regain the composure and enjoyment of his previous life, which he very much took for granted, while finding himself spiraling into an abyss of self-doubt.
