If this is my excuse for lingering over the many moods and emotions reflected on Bill Murray's seemingly immovable, pockmarked face, I'll gladly take it. It is a subtle pleasure, one in a string of many we savor from the intimacies Sofia Coppola lets us in on here. Contrast this with the alienation her characters struggle with. Despite the "Sixteen-Candles"-like ending, relationships feel most fragile here.
S.O.S, calling Dr. Strange. Once again Sofía finds in Murray the unbeatable tandem, and even more so when recently the director of Virgins Suicides acknowledged that she decided to do something light thinking of her father. Unfortunately, Murray is more than half-charming in On the rocks, as opposed to, say, Lost in translation (2003) where the altarpiece was delightfully balanced. Here, the theme is light and with b
Not good. Not bad. Just okay. Kind of plain really. Not much of a plot that we haven't seen before, but Coppola has proven that she doesn't need much plot to make a movie of depth. I think of "Somewhere" which really has no plot and yet I can still remember how empty the sunshine felt in that movie, and yet how the connection between those two touched on the best of humanity. Murray is charming but it's not enough.
"You have your own adventure." Coppola still creates gorgeous images, and makes luxurious ennui seem somewhat enviable & exciting. However, this didn't add, or even repeat anything interesting about the relationship between father-daughter, wife-husband, woman-man. Also, oddly sexist in the passing of a woman from father to husband via watches. As most Coppola's films, this would've been better as a short. Watchable.
¡La última de Sofia Coppola! Amo sus películas pero en este caso el resultado es mediocre, lejos de Lost in Translation, Las Vírgenes Suicidas o María Antonieta. Si bien el film es entretenido, está lleno de clichés y es previsible. Por el tipo de comicidad y su ambientación neoyorquina parece una mala película de Woody Allen. Como consuelo, ¡siempre es un placer ver a Bill Murray en pantalla!
Forse non la migliore tra le opere di Sofia Coppola che ci ha abituati ad una "leggerezza corposa", profonda, capace di toccare con delicatezza corde importanti e a farle risuonare e che qui invece si rarefà, disperdendosi, diventando qualcosa di slegato e sottoritmo. Non basta Bill Murray per sollevarne le sorti.
Should not surprise anyone at this point but Murray's poker face can save any movie. Not a great effort by Sofia Coppola but if she learned something from all these years it's to know how to give a good use to that Murray power and in this particular one that's the only thing that works. Great editing from his usual collaborator Sarah Flack, who should get more recognition for give to all her films a smooth rhythm.
o drama tem seus altos e baixos, os melhores momentos são os entre o Bill Murray e a Rashida Jones; o assunto que move a trama é um tanto quanto problemáticos. Masssss, os filmes da Coppola são muitos mais que assuntos, eles são sobre sentimentos, sentimentos esses que perpassam todas as pessoas. Nesse caso, o relacionamento conturbado entre pai e filha.
The turning point; when Laura & her father traveled to Mexico, showed that it tore down Laura's expectation more than audience's. I think we can relate to her. We are full of skepticism at some point in our life. That moment of truth finally makes her aware that the world isn't just about her. It's time for her to become a fun person again, just like her father's wish & to start her own adventures to this absurd life
Sofia Coppola's Apple TV+ exclusive On the Rocks gave me something to cheer on after a very packed day. If u think it will have the same intricacy as Lost in Translation, it doesn't. But it does wonder if you're simply looking for something light to watch and chill.
