Coppola has made an assemblage, an erotic autobiography in images not unlike the geysers from Charles' head that begin his film, but he's failed to set up provocative tensions or suggest new meanings. That this eruption ends with a photo shoot playing on the phrase "Everything but the kitchen sink" is evidently meant as a self-aware joke, but, as with the movie it caps, it's a clunker.
