Jeff Wells has a friend who screened "Youth Without Youth" recently, and damn if the guy didn't rip the guy a new asshole:
As feared, the film is Coppola at his most indulgent. The narrative is borderline incomprehensible, heavy handed, laughable at times. Even the most dedicated festival audiences are likely to be bored stupid. I can't imagine what the general public will make of it, if it ever sees the commercial light of day.
More at Hollywood Elsewhere.
