Larry Karaszewski on

One from the Heart

Released 2003
Distributor American Zoetrope

Francis Coppola’s idealistic attempt to transform the way movies were made upended his career when it crashed and burned, taking his Zoetrope studio with it. Set in Las Vegas but filmed entirely on sound stages to heighten the artificiality, it featured a number of audacious stylistic touches, but despite them (or perhaps because of them), audiences found the end result pretentious and uninvolving. Even so, its adherents see it as a brave, innovative film with a great soundtrack.
