Oscar-winning director Francis Ford Coppola ("The Godfather") hasn't been heard from on a large scale in a while, but he's still in the game, as proved by this more modest melodrama that he also wrote.
Val Kilmer plays a novelist in a career decline, prompting a sheriff (Bruce Dern) to propose teaming up on a book about a past tragedy. No one less than Edgar Allan Poe (Ben Chaplin) then appears to the writer in dreams. Elle Fanning and David Paymer also star, and Tom Waits narrates the tale. *** (R: GV) (Also on Blu-ray)
