(2011, Francis Ford Coppola) Hitting a small town on a book tour, washed-up horror writer Val Kilmer gets drawn into a decades-old unsolved murder case by Sheriff Bruce Dern and ghostlike Elle Fanning. Coppola’s latest feature film combines vampires, Edgar Allan Poe and serial killers, with two extended 3-D sequences. DCP. Approx. 88 mins.
“[A] curiosity that may appeal to fans of both experimental cinema and Coppola’s courageous efforts to continue pushing the limits of his creativity 50 years on.”
“Disarmingly cheeky, intermittently gorgeous. Its strongest element….is its set of surreal dream sequences, whose lush black-and-white with splashes of shimmering color recall early hand-painted cinema, as well as Coppola’s own Rumble Fish.”
