Note: the film is released theatrically on February 8th, but it’s currently available for renting and Video On Demand.
A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III is a strange feature, a short mind trip that becomes surprisingly focused near the film’s optimistic conclusion. This is an endearing film with an outstanding cast, and an impressive lead performance by Charlie Sheen that has heft and genuine substance. The film isn’t all that funny, but it certainly is amusing, and its brisk runtime (around 78 minutes) makes for an entertainingly perplexing experience. I recommend it with caution.
