Charles Swan (Charlie Sheen) is a very self centered, egotistical graphic designer who is deeply disturbed. He’s looking to find some kind of meaning, but he’s delving into his own imagination and mystical life to try to find something to hold on to. We, as the audience, are treated to the view of his active imagination and his struggle to make sense of out of his life.
This probably could be a biography of Charlie Sheen during the dark times when he was fired from Two and a Half Men. Charles Swan is really gone off the deep end. The movie descriptions always say he’s depressed because of the loss of his girlfriend, but I don’t believe that’s really the cause. It might be the trigger, but basically this guy is nuts.
I am one of the many who did not like this film. I admit, there are fans out there of anything, but this just did not go anywhere for me. I found it very pretentious, for no logical reason, and very boring. Seriously, this is one of the worst films I’ve seen this year, and not one I’d recommend to anyone other than the handful who have already seen it. In the words of “Men on Film”…. Hated it.
