Stylish and Gothic, with Storyline with Great Potential but with a Messy Screenplay
The decadent writer of witch tales Hall Baltimore (Val Kilmer) travels to Swann Valley, a small town where people go to be forgotten, as part of his tour to promote his recent novel. The town does not have a book store, and Hall stays in a hardware store waiting for his nonexistent fans. Later Sheriff Bobby LaGrange (Bruce Dern), who is an aspirant writer, arrives and tells that he is his fan and asks for an autograph in his book. Then he asks if Hall could read his recent work and invites him to go to the morgue to see the body of a victim of a serial-killer that was murdered with a stake through her heart. Then Hall goes to a coffee shop and discovers that Edgar Allan Poe has once come to a hotel in the town where twelve children have been murdered. He goes to his room and tells his wife through Skype that he is going to write a novel based on the weird events at Swann Valley. Hall falls sleep and in his dream, he walks along a park where he meets the twelve year-old Virginia “V” (Elle Fanning) that tells that is her fan, and then with Edgar Allan Poe (Ben Chaplin). On the next morning, Hall decides to team-up with Bobby to write a story based on his idea, but he is blocked and uses pills to sleep and dream. Along the creation process, Hall entwines reality with his dreams.
“Twixt” is a stylish and Gothic movie by Francis Ford Coppola, with a ghost story about the writing process, magnificent cinematography and atmosphere and great performance of Val Kilmer. Unfortunately, the screenplay is messy and disappoints most of the viewers including me. The potential of the storyline is lost with the poor script. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): “Virginia”
Note: On 20 Juky 2016 I saw this film again.
I liked it! (visually).
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 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.
