Fucking loved it. Haven't seen Bling Ring yet but this is definitely my favorite film by Ms. Coppola. A perfect example of showing not telling when it comes to emotion and storytelling. Very subtle performances and very beautiful storytelling. I was so moved by this movie. Everything that didn't work for Lost in Translation worked beautifully here. Just captivating.
much preferred on a second watch. some of the script is a little overt and feels a bit contrived in trying to get its message across, but it is sincere at its core and is very beautifully realised otherwise
I have troubles to have an opinion on this film as some elements (the composition of the frames, the ending) are very impressive and some others (all the story about the girl, quite boring...) very weak. Like all of Sofia's films, this film is disapointing but interesting.
The first opening five minutes of this film are a wonderful indicator of the tone/color of the entire work as we are forced to watch a stationary camera capture the monotonous, drab footage of a Lamborghini going around a race track four times. Indeed, this is a film in which everything and nothing happens... another investigation into the depths of Antonioni-esque existentialism by Ms. Coppola. Not bad...
marie antoniette's disconnection plus lost in translation's ennui and sadness. the scenes in milan are so depressing and yet realistic. italy is possibly the most terrifying place on the planet right now. simulacra et simulation. at least bob harris and charlotte could find some empathy in tokyo... milan, on the other hand, is... the horror... the horror...
Sofia Coppola has done it again. This beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, extremely slow, small film is as simple as it is haunting. I saw it this morning and can´t get it out of my head or my chest. And I'm very sure it will find a place in my heart. I want to marry you, Sofia. La Dolce Vita: The L.A. version.
