Scavenger Hunt 75
15. The same production designer as a favorite film. (Dean Tavoularis--One from the Heart.)
I'll have whatever the Coppolas are drinking to make them such fine filmmakers. FFC's son Roman Coppola made this faux 60s sci-fi film within a film, and it looks just incredible. The story somewhat falters when Paul, our young filmmaker, becomes infatuated with lead starlet Valentine, but the campy sci-fi bits are incredibly spot-on to the time period. Not really a film you watch for the plot, more for gawking at the high production values on display.
Roman is more prolific as a screenwriter on many Wes Anderson films, but this was a glowing tribute to vintage, sexy sci-fi films.
