Experiencing a midlife crisis (along with the family and creative crisis), writer Trusevich horor novels the spirit of "cheapened" by Stephen king - Hall in Baltimore, travels to the provincial town to promote his new book, and distribute signed copies. But as it turns out there is not wait. Except that just crazy, the local Sheriff — fan of his writings, wants something to create together and this much he vexatious. And then there and wife demanding money, trouble — she wants to sell a rare old book from his collection, if he will take on time. Then the writer gets drunk and falls asleep. And then the fun begins. In the dream of his visit the dead girl V, and the great author of mystery and detectives — Edgar Allan PoE. First in order to open up the hero of a terrible secret of their town, second that would return to him lost the inspiration and help in to understand...

"Readers often ask me where I know so much about the witches. I tell them that I — married a witch!"

The appearance of this pattern was partly for me, unexpected event, and kind of expected. The thing that I have in the spring of 2009 I have learned from the media that the American film Director Francis Ford Coppola, starts to the shooting of his new tape, according to own scenario where describes spirits and vampires, and the plot revolves around a creative quest writer — loser; in recent years, lost inspiration, and blaming himself for the death of his daughter. It was reported so the same as for the first time in many years, in the main role on the big screen will appear, have forgotten actor Val Kilmer. And that this mystical Thriller — a kind return of the great Director to the basics in mainstreme movie of the current generation.

Here when the film is all come in our products (almost a year later than in the States), and became known for its ridiculous budget for mainstreaming horor (just what that a pathetic 7 million $- budget American TV ribbon, even that whole "Twilight" are more expensive), and low ratings from critics and audience expectations, I still hoped for a good picture. And because the day of the premiere went to the cinema.

Even a very modest number of spectators who came as I the first show in our city, I don't bother. After watching, I was surprised that do not understand what I wanted to say with this film the author (and the fact that movie ended too quickly, it duration less than two hours), and if I knew the name of the Director and screenwriter, and I know (hell - sir Francis Ford Coppola!), then I would think  Between — it's such a mockery of the genre of mystical Thriller, and the final twist — intentional smart "fouled" incompetent Director, who fear that the public after the session, you will crack him failure properly to conclude, and will see the void in his tape, so I decided to finish the story. And no matter what think of the audience as possible as always refer to that " In my film everyone saw what he saw". The important thing is that the ending is killer...

It may seem that I scolded the Director. No. But for a Director as Francis Ford Coppola Thriller (more like "black" Comedy) "Between" — very very weak statement. And mind you, I not have 'm a meager budget (and as a consequence TV -film quality and camera work, and also the works of the artists paintings and master special effects effects on 3-D - Yes there is), and not all the modesty of the setting, and the very essence of the film and its content. Coppola did not could tell about his alter — the ego in the face of the writer who is in deep crisis, without a mystical underpinnings and plot confusion (sometimes have not clear that is the screen - sleep hero, halucinate or reality, especially for the characteristics of the eccentric Sheriff Bobby Lagrange to the word great is played by Bruce Dern, and the fate of the Hall of Baltimore in the finals). And why it introduced the story of the Ghost (whether the vampire?) the heroine El Faning? A kind of nod to his dead daughter? And this is palinauskas above, the stage final the morgue? What the hell was that? Ah, I forgot — the main thing was the "killer ending"...

In short, it is not I expect a new film of the famous Director. Not say that the film is not like his semantic vagueness could be to forgive an inexperienced Director, thanks to an attractive picture(the color black — white with splashes of color-light or candles and red carpets and curtains) but not only Coppola. So he always able to combine one with the other, and always brought his idea to the viewer. And if I in this film it is not caught, it is not mean I "tight". Deal all of failing to be clear, Director. I used for it understand. Even boring and too, some as "personal", black — white "Tetro" was in this respect, a much better off...

In General the only plus (personally for me) in this picture, is that a beginner the talented actress El Faning worked with such a mastodon as Francis Ford Coppola (in her contrast his Director, "Between" to be counted) and what I followed the career of Alden Ehrenreich. Well and that after so many years again she saw Val Kilmer on the big screen...

Council — to look only to the fans of the famous Director, or those who know his old works. And rest, especially the young fans who decided to touch the works of Francis Ford Coppola, it is better to pay attention to his old paintings, in order not to build a misconception regarding this great Director.

It makes sense to not tune in a scary and in a strange movie.

The meaning of the narrative in it comes down to what would show the transformation of the charging of the writer in the artist of the word by breaking it my truth, and not to clarify any mysterious story.

All that is visible is a phantasmagoria of dangling plot lines, traditional American Miasnikov, with references to the works of Edgar Allan PoE as one of the founding fathers of the Foundation of modern mass culture. The a the fans too, there is something to profit (with fresh eyes): let him Edgar Allanic not wrote in plain text on the vampires, the Gothic image could be implied in many heroes from it works — vampire energy, it is fashioned with coils neurotic, saps the victim of his suffocating polusumashedshie adoration, and then, in that then becomes the subject of his protecting love and care.

Francis Ford Coppola. Six-time Oscar winner, who directed such iconic tapes as — trilogy "the Godfather," "Apocalypse now," "Dracula". But in recent years  - twenty he almost nothing creates for this time there were only five paintings: two more tolerable drama, a couple of highly controversial projects and one cinema limited release, which is impossible to find anywhere else... This movie is the moment, is the latest work of the Director and critics have broken in down and ashes yeah and the audience were not love it.

I can understand all the negativity to "Between". It is the product is very uneven, it goes to dark Gothic, the in the absurd comic, shows scenes of murder, and then joking about a quarrelsome wife. Plus, some actions cannot be somehow characterized. For example — closing late in the evening in the plot, the characters decide to use a Ouija Board (not a spoiler, just a small scene, without impact on the plot), the writer, the Sheriff assistant some little kid sneaking the question of why they this kid who is he do this??? Here in this way all built cinema, the inconsistent mash-up episodes with some obscure subtext.

Despite this, the creation of the FPC I liked it. Not a masterpiece of course, but interesting to watch. Of the positive note the game El fanning, I think she has surpassed his sister in his mother's will. Yeah and a whole there is a decent castes.

Advised not will, too specific motion picture...
