The execution ... is perilously self-absorbed ...
Full Review | Original Score: C
February 13, 2013
Proves two things - that Charlie Sheen is a better actor than his public persona and stint on Two and a Half Men may have led you to believe and that he needs to find a character to prove that instead of this riff on his real-life drama.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5.0
February 13, 2013
A movie that doesn't really seem to have any reason to exist, other than maybe to give writer and director Roman Coppola and star Charlie Sheen something to do for a few weeks.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
February 11, 2013
Breezily charming film is more heart-on-the-sleeve warm and visually generous.
February 11, 2013
As Charles Swan seems to become more aware of his loneliness, Charlie Sheen seems to become more protective of his Charlie Sheen-ness.
February 10, 2013
Sheen's '70s-set comedy is a jumbled, sex-filled mess.

[VIDEO ESSAY] Roman Coppola goes so far as to throw in a literal "kitchen sink" as part of his ploy to entertain, but "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III" can't even manage to titillate.

The film reveals a depth and weight to the Charlie Sheen archetype that we haven't experienced before.

At least they got the casting right.
February 8, 2013
'A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III' is billed as a comedy, but I think that must be a mistake. I kept waiting for the laughs to come - and no luck.
February 8, 2013
This isn't a despicable film or a lazy one; it's just a doodle, a glorified home movie by a filmmaker who no doubt has one hell of a Rolodex and a few favors to call in.
February 8, 2013
Anathema to a casual audience, fodder for those obsessed with the tabloid exploits of its lead, A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III takes a certain fortitude or masochism to stick around for all these glances inside Charlie's mind.

February 8, 2013
Sort of like Bob Fosse's "All That Jazz'' minus the music, the wit and the insight, not to mention Roy Scheider's brilliant performance.

February 8, 2013
A campy riff on 8 1/2 that doesn't really work, despite a cool visual style, and game performances from Sheen and Murray.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
February 7, 2013
A noodling indulgence that's alternately freewheeling and dead in the water.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
February 7, 2013
At best it is a mildly diverting goof with a charmless lead performance. Its underlying misogyny leaves a sour taste.

Charles Swan might have have been successful if its sensibilities weren't so aligned with its constantly disappointing protagonist's.
February 7, 2013
From its puffed-up title to the way the cast playfully bows to us at the end, "Swan" is so eager to be a trippy comic lark that it ends up resembling a clown trying to fit through a pea-shooter.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
February 7, 2013
Sitting through The Mind of Charles Swan III does not lead to a deeper understanding of Charlie Sheen. It does, however, demonstrate his compulsion for poor judgment and bad choices.
February 7, 2013
The film strangely takes it for granted that everyone adores Charlie Sheen, and is willing to extend affection to the unmistakably Charlie Sheen-like character he plays here.
