Francis Ford Coppola’s Terrible ‘Twixt’ Finally Gets Dumped to Home Video

1twixt-twixt-twixt-2011-13-g

Francis Ford Coppola’s absolutely atrocious and embarrassing Twixt, which was shot in 3-D and meant to be “edited live” by the director, is finally getting dumped in the home video crapper by 20th Century Fox on Blu-ray and DVD July 30. Yippie!

If you couldn’t tell, I hated it.

Starring Val Kilmer, Bruce Dern, Elle Fanning, David Paymer and Ben Chaplin, “A writer with a declining career arrives in a small town as part of his book tour and gets caught up in a murder mystery involving a young girl. That night in a dream, he is approached by a mysterious young ghost named V. He’s unsure of her connection to the murder in the town, but is grateful for the story being handed to him. Ultimately he is led to the truth of the story, surprised to find that the ending has more to do with his own life than he could ever have anticipated.

    I can’t say I hated this film cause I turned it off not even half way through.

    LOL; to the title of this post and to the comment above. When I tried to watch this, within 5 minutes I was asking myself if the film was some sort of dare gone horribly wrong.

    God I hated this movie. Twixt is one of the few films that I really struggled to get through. And when I told a friend of mine, who also watched the movie with me, Twixt was directed by the same guy who directed The Godfather films, he thought I was joking at first.

      Not to forget “Apocalypse Now”, “Dracula”,”The Conversation” and “Rumble Fish”.

        Funny you mention Rumble Fish, because I swear I’m one of the very few people, who actually like that movie. Everyone else I know can’t stand it or they REALLY hate it. lol.

          Really ? I like it too. It seems to be a very underrated movie. Strange, because I think you can see traces of it in many independent films nowadays.

  • dr.lamb

    Yeah, but did you like it ? Bad jokes aside, this was terrible. I guess at least the actors had a lot of fun though. Francis wrote a script overnight, organized some studio money and everybody was hamming it up to 11 in a Coppola-wine fueled shooting, that’s how I imagine it.

      Actually Coppola is committed to fully funding his own film. As awful as I’ve heared this film is, I kind of wish he had gone through with the live editing tour, just to see what that would even be like.

    I liked it… so sue me.

    Holy shit, I actually turned the TRAILER off half way through it just now.
    And I know I’m going to catch Hell for this but, I always thought that FFC’s movies had a lot of great scenes – that were squeezed between long moments of extreme boredom.
