Francis Ford Coppola’s ‘Twixt’ Trailer
The Film Stage - over 5 years
Francis Ford Coppola‘s Twixt is something that we’ve covered a great deal on this site, but even things like stills don’t really tell us how this will look and feel as a film. Luckily, a trailer has arrived on TIFF’s YouTube channel (via FirstShowing), and it’s an extensive look at the director’s return to horror. What strikes me the most about the preview is how much it truly feels like a Coppola movie. Those who have only seen The Godfather movies may not be aware of his penchant for including some stranger-than-normal touches, and the way he uses certain things — like black and white or fading — feels right at home in his filmography. And the line about writing for profit? Anybody who knows the man’s history knows how much that must mean to him. I’m not sure if that music we hear is from composer Dan Deacon, but his background in electronic music might mean that this isn’t it, although I can’t say for sure. The only true concern that was raised here is the cheapness of everyth ...

The film, Susan Streitfeld's adaptation of Michael Murphy's 1972 novel, will probably draw the same love-it-or-hate-it response the book has: either it's a
