Welcome Back, Koppola by Nobody - May 31, 2010
After a long reprieve, Coppola returns with a visually captivating, mostly black & white, story set in Buenos Aires. It didn't take long to get past over my personal feelings about Vincent Gallo (who I find to be generally repugnant). Nor was it hard to set aside the fairly lame performance by a Leonardo DiCaprio look-alike or Gallo's barely passable Spanish. Maribel Verdu (Pan's Labyrinth) picked up the slack in the skilled acting department. If nothing else, Tetro is a compelling story and nicely crafted film that reminds us that Coppola didn't throw in the towel after his last epic - Peggy Sue Got Married.
