VINCENT GALLO IS "TETRO" IN THIS 2009 COPPOLA - EVERY FAMILY HAS A SECRET BUT THIS IS..THE HORROR!

For those that may think Coppola's last good flick was Apocalypse Now, we submit for your approval 2009's Tetro, Filmed in black & white and color (for the flashback sequences) in Buenos Aires, as to be expected the photography is gorgeous. The "family secret" dramatic story plays out well and the cast is spot-on. A hugely overlooked film and I'll go ahead and admit it online to the whole world that I'm a Vincent Gallo fan.....The Horror!! Pinewoods Rating System - Three & 1/2 Pinewoods

Tetro Movie Review & Film Summary (2009) | Roger Ebert

"Tetro" may be the most autobiographical film Francis Ford Coppola has made. He said at Cannes "nothing in it happened, but it's all true." I guess I know what that means. He could be describing any "autobiographical" film or novel.

Coppola's "Tetro" - Sons and the Father Who Dominated Them

And so, much like Mr. Coppola's own filmmaking past, the old man looms. Hollywood haunts "Tetro" just as Carlo haunts his sons. Eschewing the inexorable forward thrust of most contemporary studio products, Mr. Coppola, working from his own screenplay - his first original one since "The Conversation" in 1974 - drifts and circles around his themes much as Bennie and Tetro amble around town.

Beautiful Argentine actress Mirabel Verdu totally kills it as Tetro's girlfriend "Miranda."

THE SHEER HORROR!!
