Roman Coppola's new film, starring Charlie Sheen, Jason Schwarzman, and Bill Murray

I've always felt that Roman Coppola's 2001 directorial debut CQ was an underrated mini-gem. His latest film, A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, looks less heartfelt and more zany. Maybe too zany, or even that dreaded word, quirky. The film stars Charlie Sheen (eesh), Jason Schwartzman (okay), Bill Murray (heck yeah), Patricia Arquette (ha-cha-cha), and Aubrey Plaza (hummuna). Here's a synopsis:

Set in a stylized Los Angeles, A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III is a playful comedy of lost love, friendship, revenge fantasies, and Brandy Alexanders. Charles (Charlie Sheen) is a successful graphic designer whose fame, money, and charm have provided him with a seemingly perfect life. When his true love, a perplexing beauty named Ivana, suddenly breaks off their relationship, Charles' life falls apart, and he swirls into a downward spiral of doubt, confusion, and reflection. With the support of his loyal intimates -- Kirby (Jason Schwartzman), Saul (Bill Murray), and his sister, Izzy (Patricia Arquette) -- he begins the hard road of self-evaluation to come to terms with a life without Ivana. The film begs the question: Is it possible to love and hate someone at the same time?

The answer, by the way, is yes.

A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III comes out February 8th, which may or may not be a bad sign. In the gallery are some posters for the film.
