"'Tetro' may be the most autobiographical film Francis Ford Coppola has made. He said at Cannes 'nothing in it happened, but it's all true.' I guess I know what that means. He could be describing any 'autobiographical' film or novel. The pitfall is in trying to find parallels: Coppola had a father who was a famous conductor, he has a brother he has sometimes argued with, his sister Talia Shire somewhat resembles the heroine of this film, his nephew Nicolas Cage somewhat resembles the character Tetro, and on and on. All meaningless."
"Tetro feels supremely like the work of a director making exactly the film he wants. Creating his own slightly surreal, self-contained world, supplementing the black-and-white HD photography with sequences which not only break out in color but switch up the aspect ratio as well, introducing dance numbers and plot absurdities with an equal lack of self-consciousness, Coppola is not only utterly in control of his medium, but fully willing to enrich his basic chops with an appealing and lightly worn experimentalism. It’s a fascinating ride."
