Recent Academy Award nominee Roman Coppola (he co-wrote Moonrise Kingdom) is giving us A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, his first feature film as a director since 2001's CQ. Today, CraveOnline is giving you a glimpse inside the production art of A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, with five exclusive images (somewhat NSFW) by Alex Tavoularis, a concept artist who first worked with the Coppola clan on the classic Vietnam War film Apocalypse Now in 1979. Tavoularis's work has also inspired sequences from films ranging from Heavy Metal to One from the Heart.

"Set in a stylized Los Angeles, A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III is a playful comedy of lost love, friendship, revenge fantasies, and Brandy Alexanders. Charles (Charlie Sheen) is a successful graphic designer whose fame, money and charm have provided him with a seemingly perfect life. When his true love, a perplexing beauty named Ivana, suddenly breaks off their relationship, Charles’ life falls apart and he swirls into a downward spiral of doubt, confusion and reflection. With the support of his loyal intimates— Kirby (Jason Schwartzman), Saul (Bill Murray), and his sister, Izzy (Patricia Arquette) — he begins the hard road of self-evaluation to come to terms with a life without Ivana. The film begs the question: Is it possible to love and hate someone at the same time?"

A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III hits select theaters on February 8, but you can find it on VOD now, or download it on iTunes.
