You're a Big Boy Now
First screened in August 2008 / Most recently screened in May 2016
Director: Francis Ford Coppola. Cast: Peter Kastner, Elizabeth Hartman, Karen Black, Geraldine Page, Julie Harris, Tony Bill, Rip Torn, Dolph Sweet, Michael Dunn, Michael O'Sullivan. Screenplay: Francis Ford Coppola.

Twitter Capsule: Loopy bohemian comedy barely augurs The Rain People, much less Coppola's 70s triumphs. Fine but tad jumbled.

Second Capsule: Lava lamp in a 220 volt. Colorful, lively, tricksy, but gets a little dull. Coppola takes cast out on limbs.

VOR:   Something about its loopiness compels a revisit. Maybe it's just Coppola's subsequent trajectory that inspires curiosity. Lots of ideas, anyway.
