Tetro (2009) dir. Francis Ford Coppola

A story of the rivalry and difficult relationship between two brothers – Bennie, an 18 year-old cruise ship waiter and Tetro, his older brother and a once-promising writer. A film about the differences and pressure between members of an artistic Italian family, set and filmed in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Numerous theatrical references and tropes, directed with finesse and emotion by Francis Ford Coppola, proving his immense directorial talent despite some mediocre showings in the past decade.
Excellent casting choices for all roles. Vincent Gallo proves that he can be a remarkable actor given the right role – in this case as the protagonist Tetro. Alden Ehrenreich and Maribel Verdú also do a marvelous job as Bennie and Tetro’s girfriend Miranda, resp.
Received wide critical acclaim, including a “three-star” rating by Roger Ebert (who had a very public row with Vincent Gallo in the past over his directorial qualities), calling the film “boldly operatic” and “maybe the most autobiographical film Francis Ford Coppola has made”.
The film has since fallen into obscurity, but is definitely worth being remembered.
