I love all kinds of movies from all genres whether they are mainstream released or independent distributed. A good movie is a good movie. Out of all the genres, I have always enjoyed a good horror movie. But even more, I enjoy mysterious Gothic horror movies! My real rating is around 8/10. But I was so disappointed with all the negative reviews that I put 10/10 to help with the low score. I read those reviews and expected to hate the movie. But I ended up enjoying it! This movie is, like many reviewers have stated, very different from Francis Ford Coppolas previous works. Mr. Coppola has <more>
directed some of the greatest films ever made and many were destroying this film because it wasn't like the rest of his filmography. I bet if you didn't tell someone that Francis Ford Coppola directed this, the reaction would be different. This happens to be one of the best Horror films in recent memory. If you didn't know, a small aspect of this movie is based on the death of Francis son. That alone is interesting to know! I can see why this wasn't released nationwide in theaters because of it's independent art house feel. But I still thought this was better than a lot of the Horror movies that were graced with a nationwide theater count. This is a great ghost, murder mystery movie with mesmerizing Gothic visuals. It almost had a 90s feel. The vibe of the film with its small town eerie setting reminded me of the John Carpenter classic "In the Mouth of Madness" at times. The acting is decent. Val Kimmer is okay as the lead and Elle Fanning is showing that she has more acting capabilities than her sister Dakotah. Ben Chaplin does a great job as the ghost of Edgar Allen Poe. The make-up effects for the ghostly character V and others were simple yet haunting and clever. The cinematography is nicely done. One other memorable aspect of the film was the eerie soundtrack. It is beautiful and creepy at the same time which helps with the tone of the film. This movie as a whole reminded me of an R rated Goosebumps movie. I mean that in a good way. Many are saying the story is downright stupid or doesn't make sense. Well honestly, I love the dreamy incoherent plot. I could understand completely what was going on, but sometimes I just got lost in the artsy visuals that I didn't really care whether the story made sense or not. This is labeled as a Horror movie and I at first expected more scares. But when I first watched it, I only jumped one or two times, and never saw anything that frightened me. I felt a little disappointed at that and felt I had wasted 16 bucks on this movie. Then after the ending, I just felt an uneasy feeling brought to me from the film. I felt creeped out. This movie isn't terrifying, but after much thought, it was scary at times. Twixt sticks with you after the ending. That's what is masterful about this type of horror. I also realized that this movie really gets better with multiple viewings! Twixt is receiving tormented reviews right now, but I can tell that throughout the years the reviews will get more and more positive. This isn't a mega masterpiece, but it is a good enough movie to have positive feedback. I seriously cannot get over the amazing Gothic visuals during the dream sequences! I really hope the score of 4.9/10 current score when I typed this review goes up to at least a 6/10. I am confident in predicting this film will gain a cult following eventually. I'm saying you should give this a try before assuming it is bad because of the negative reviews. You might like it, you might hate it. But if you want a nice visual treat of a Horror/suspense movie, then rent or buy this. Turn off the lights, and enjoy the mysterious ride!
A unique and bright spot in Coppola and Kilmer's filmography. (by almightydavidbc27)
This is Coppola cum David Lynch. In fact, if this were directed by Lynch it would be hailed as a return to form from the master of the surreal, however Coppola can't seem to catch a break. I've been a big fan of his revitalized art-house film making, admiring Youth Without Youth, and really loving Tetro. Here he continues the trend with a surreal film right up the Twin Peaks alley. It is gorgeously shot, the dream sequences are visually astounding, Coppola playing with blacks and whites, and touches of vivid color, providing a lucid experience. What's more is that this is an <more>
extremely personal film for Coppola, with themes of selling out as an artist, losing a child, and confronting failure. It has some great acting, providing Val Kilmer with is first decent role since Felon, and much to his own surprise, he still has it. He is in turns funny, but also hopeless and adrift. Drunk, tired, and distracted as the bargain basement Stephen King. When he roles into town to sign books at a hardware store, the local sheriff ropes him into the haunted towns history. Through a series of strange experiences, and lucid fever dreams a drunken dream inspired the film he uncovers the dark secrets of the town, meets Poe, and confronts his long buried feelings. It's a pleasure to watch something so pulpy, abstract, and full of atmosphere.
To say the movie Twixt is sick is true. To say the movie is genius is even more so. This movie twisted around a sick man's plot to protect orphan children from the vampires that live across the lake from his small town sounds like a plot that would be hard to follow. This movie is a mixture of darkness and light, black and white and color, beauty and darkness. Coppola uses black and white filmography to show the past and the dream world that is entered by Hall Baltimore played by Val Kilmer. Baltimore himself is a drunken author using drunken and drug induced comas to write his stories. <more>
It was more than he bargained for when he went to the little town and met V a ghost played by the beautiful Elle Fanning. All in all this film was disturbingly amazing. It really pulls you into the murder mystery of V's death and the lives of the residents of the town both in the present and in the past. I loved this movie. It is a dark and exquisitely beautiful work of art.
A Hauntingly Beautiful Piece (by jackmanandpigeonboy)
First thing is first. Do Not go into this movie expecting Godfather or Apocalypse now material. Those were Coppola's masterpieces and no one will ever make anything quite like those films. Okay? Okay.I have been waiting for this film for quite the while. I saw the trailer when it came out and was very excited. It was a long and hard search to find this film but I found it eventually. My hopes had been really high since the trailer, but then I saw some of the reviews which just had nothing but awfulness to offer this film. So I lowered my expectations, and still watched it only to be <more>
confused. Not by the film itself, but by the fact that it got bad reviews and ratings. I could see what some people didn't like about it, but I didn't notice anything that would have given such an undeserved wave of hate.I think that this movie is good for people who appreciate obscurity and uncertainty in films. Most of these are hardcore film buffs. This film was very visually fantastic and was very haunting from the start. Val Kilmer surprised me with his acting in this one. He was cocky, depressed, and stressed all at once. Bruce Dern as the kooky sheriff was great as well. All of the cast did good, and same goes for the directing. In the movie Val kilmer starts to have these dreams, and my god these dream sequences are glorious. They are visually very pretty yet spooky. The encounters with people are creepy and quirky. Even the scenes in which he is awake share the same qualities, but there just not as intense. The story felt like homage to Gothic horror films, and there was some vampire content in it. Francis Ford Coppola has been making more personal films, and yes it's noticeable. In a specific scene, I won't reveal, was not really needed and felt like a filler.This movie sort of feels like a really cool dream. Which makes sense knowing that Coppola got the idea from a dream which might throw some of you off, but I loved this film and recommend to all.
Yes, visually it's astonishing, every single frame of this movie is SO gorgeous that it's a visual feast, all of it. And so is the music, perfectly adapted to every moment, to the point that it mixes with regular noises and yet contributes to every single mood throughout the whole movie.The fantasy in every scene, especially the dream sequences, the mixture of black and white and color photography, could make a photographer's dream presentation portfolio, it could put a photographer on the map and he will be called from "Elle", from "Vogue" and from all those <more>
glossy magazines where pictures can glamorize a carrot if they want to.I pictured "The Devil Wears Prada" as a companion movie to this one, not because of the subject matter, but because of the incredible amount of sophistication when taking care of every single detail within every single frame of picture.Since I'm almost 100 percent visual, I don't care too much about the story line with this kind of movies, usually totally unbelievable and silly, worse yet, since I do not believe in devils, phantoms, spirits, etc. I couldn't care less about this particular angle of the story, I just enjoyed the visuals and they are sublime.All the other critics complained about confusion and loose ends within the story but I wonder... maybe the idea was exactly what we saw, a string of gorgeous scenes, magnificently played and a thin storyline to glue everything together: A delicate soufflé for the eyes. Exquisitely cooked by a master.
First off, the story line was quite nice. It was different and off the beaten path of a typical motion picture of this genre. Typically, these types of movies do not impress me, nor do they interest me, but this caught me by surprise.Simply put - the acting was superb. Val Kilmer is not your typical 'Hollywood Actor'... He's much better. Alden Ehrenreich was impressive as well.Next - The cinematography was perfect! Scenes featuring Ben Chaplin as Poe COULD NOT have been portrayed any better. The 'surrealism' scenes aren't used much in films, but it was well worth it in <more>
