Re: Megalopolis (2024, D: Francis Ford Coppola)

I like Youth Without Youth too and Twixt. But if people are looking for a sign that Coppola still might have *it*, Tetro is the one. Excellent film. 14 years ago he could still knock one out of the park. And that was t ball compared to the ambition he has for Megalopolis.

I viewed Hearts of Darkness again recently, Francis Coppola might be my cinematic hero. No one has the balls he does when it comes to making his dreams a reality. Risking every last dime he has to make it happen at 85. Itís inspirational. I feel like Iím rooting for my home team when it comes to Megalopolis. I hope it wins the Palme Díor and secures distribution in the states and is both a critical and financial success. Heís been talking about making another film already. I hope it comes to fruition.

No shit. Must be nice to be able to spend 100 million and basically lose it all.

This looks really good, but I'm just not into this type of genre.

I wish he'd made something more intimate and on a smaller scale. Bertolucci's last feature "Me and You" was an engaging and beautifully made coming of age film set mainly in one location.

If this is anything like Tetro I have no interest in seeing it. The only thing worth watching was Maribel Verdķ. The "shocking" twist was pedestrian. I grew up in suburban Connecticut and saw the same thing next door.The Powell and Pressburger color flashbacks were ok.
