As a director, Francis Ford Coppola has nothing left to prove, to anyone. Over the past 40 plus years he's given us a wealth of amazing movies (we won't mention Jack) and won awards everywhere. Now it seems it is time for him to make a movie for himself, without giving a flying feck what anyone else thinks, and that movie is Twixt. This movie is Coppola having a blast with the material, whilst also making it surprisingly personal, as Val Kilmer's Hall Baltimore investigates the murder of a young girl, whilst on a book signing tour. It's definitely a film that has divided audiences, but I thought it was terrific, and thanks to my lovely friends at Fox I have a copy of the Blu-ray to giveaway to one reader.
TWIXT follows Hall Baltimore (Kilmer), a writer on a book tour who uncovers a disturbing murder that could be source material for his next novel. But as Hall investigates the killing, he finds himself confronted by chilling nightmares, including the ghost of a young girl (Fanning). As he uncovers more horrifying revelations, Hall discovers that the story has more to do with his own life than he could ever have imagined.
