Charlie Sheen Goes Retro and Crazy in 'Charles Swan' Trailer (Video)
Taking Jason Schwartzman and Bill Murray along for the ride, Sheen hallucinates and chases women in Roman Coppola's latest.
Technically, A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III is a work of fiction, but some strategic casting suggests otherwise.
Roman Coppola's first directorial effort in over a decade is a loony trip through 1970's-set hallucinations, with Charlie Sheen starring as a debauched playboy who loses his current girlfriend over some nude shots of his ex. In what must have been second nature for him, Sheen goes on a wild romp through dreams and nightmares, fueled by drugs and mojo and deep down, a sensitive side.
He's joined by frequent Coppola collaborators Jason Schwartzman and Bill Murray (all part of Wes Anderson's clan), who transform to fit the decades-old motif.
The film has been received with mixed sentiment from critics; THR's Deborah Young praised Sheen's "swaggering, clowning portrayal of Swan" for his "likeable moments of sheer absurd humor," but said "the film lacks style, wit and originality."
