Noticed: Coppola’s “Twixt” Pretty Funny, If Unintentionally
Our own Cory Everett, author of Film Focus and blogger for indieWIRE’s the Playlist,was quoted in the Los Angeles Times with his review of Coppola’s new film, “Twixt.” (The Los Angeles Times: Toronto 2011: Francis Ford Coppola’s “Twixt” not wowing the critics, September 12, 2011.) It was part of his Toronto Film Fest wrap up.
The staging is at times awkward and many of the supporting actors laughably amateur. As much as the budget appears to have been a constraint on the effects of the film, it shouldn’t have affected the acting or coherency of the picture…. While those looking for a few midnight movie scares will find themselves very disappointed, the film is funny, sometimes intentionally, sometimes not.
