CQ (2001) Poster

A young filmmaker in 1960s Paris juggles directing a cheesy sci-fi debacle, directing his own personal art film, coping with his crumbling relationship with his girlfriend, and a new-found infatuation with the sci-fi film's starlet.

| Dazzling? Yes! Brilliant? Maybe...
"CQ" is the directorial debut of Roman Coppola, the latest product of the great Coppola dynasty. This movie contains two other movies; one is "Codename Dragonfly," the schlocky science fiction spoof of "Barbarella," and the black and white personal piece by the main character. Anyway, I found "CQ" interesting. I enjoyed the chic 1960's European look. And the "Dragonfly" segments were also fun to watch. The rest, however, was probably trying too hard to be clever. The most memorable performance belongs to Gerard Depardieu, as "Dragonfly"'s first director. Although he doesn't have much screen time, he manages to make the most of what he has. If nothing else, "CQ" makes for nice eye candy.
