    Director Sofia Coppola's career to date exemplifies the adage to "write what you know." For her fourth feature, Francis Ford Coppola's youngest child focuses on a famous man and his daughter. Actor Johnny Marco (a surprisingly poignant Stephen Dorff) stays in Tinseltown's Chateau Marmont while promoting his latest picture. When he isn't attending press junkets, he smokes, sleeps around, and hires blonde twins who pole-dance for his entertainment (they bring their own collapsible poles). At a party, he gets so drunk he falls and breaks his wrist. Into this adult scenario, his ex-wife drops off 11-year-old Cleo (Elle Fanning) for a visit. Despite the state of suspended adolescence in which he drifts, Johnny gets a kick out of this well-behaved kid, who skates like a champ and cooks like a pro. If Cleo doesn't quite worship her delinquent dad, she enjoys his company, but when Johnny finds out her mother needs to "take some time off," he must examine a life in which mind-numbing routine takes precedence over purpose. Somewhere represents Coppola's third film about a famous figure, after Marie Antoinette, and her second about a movie star, after Lost in Translation. Johnny shares Bob's frustration with a system that treats him more like a cog in the machine than a human being. Coppola conveys his frustration best when Johnny gets fitted for an old-age mask--a remarkable sequence in which Dorff looks like a plaster monster devoid of eyes and mouth, just two holes through which to breathe. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

    Product Description

    Actor Johnny Marco (Stephen Dorff) is leading the fast-paced lifestyle of a tabloid celebrity. He's comfortably numb with his life of women and pills when his 11-year-old daughter Cleo (Elle Fanning) unexpectedly arrives at his room at Hollywood's legendary Chateau Marmont hotel. Their encounters encourage Johnny to question his life in ways he never expected.

    The first few scenes pretty much lay out the outline for the film....slow, repetitive, and pointless.
    Cru
    I would be very wary of trusting anyone who liked this movie; it's not just a matter of opinion, it's a matter of knowing what a film must supply an audience.
    Master Cineaster
    In the end, one can hope he is walking toward something rather than away from something, but by this point, the film took far too long to get nowhere.

    Somewhere is a beautiful meditative film about Johnny Marco (played by Stephen Dorff), a lonely, bored, dissolute Hollywood star who, by spending time with his daughter, Cleo (played by Elle Fanning) learns to love again. Elle Fanning is absolutely delightful in the role -- she is so sweet, natural, and at times, charmingly awkward. Her youth and unpretentious beauty are an effective foil to Stephen Dorff's character, who parties hard on a regular basis and looks it. Johnny is in a state of existential ennui; he lacks emotional connection with others and lives a life of instant gratification that is devoid of meaning. When Cleo's mother leaves Cleo with Johnny for an extended period of time, it gives him the chance to renew his relationship with her and thaw his heart. By learning to love Cleo, Johnny is forced to face the emptiness in his life and decides to change.

    Format: DVD
    sophia coppola, the writer and director, is francis coppola's daughter. her cousin is nicholas cage. another cousin is jason schwartzman (Bored to Death on HBO), whose mother is talia shire (Rocky), francis's sister. sofia was married to director spike jonze. she has probably known no one but movie people her entire life. her movie is about a movie star who ,far from being a fascinating guy, is closer to being a total zero in personality. and, of course, everyone who barely knows him thinks he is fascinating. sofia coppola paints a devastating portrait of a top actor in the first half of this movie.

    i found it very funny but you might miss the satire it is so low key. johnny, played by stephen dorf, is like an unmade bed walking around. he can barely be bothered to comb his hair, change his clothes or do much but passively participate. he hires twin pole dancers and falls asleep during their act. he falls asleep during sex. his costar finds him a big nothing. women text him complaining about his behavior which is mainly that he isn't following through with them. he can sit in a makeup chair for hours with everything but his nostrils covered, completely cut off from stimulation, and be fine with it. he also likes hot tubs, massages, tv shows like FRIENDS reruns and video games. when he's asked about the meaning of a movie he's been in, he draws a complete blank. when he stands next to the movie poster of himself, you would never know it is the same guy. he likes driving but most of the time he's not even going anywhere. the movie opens with him aimlessly driving back and forth in the desert. he's asked at a party if he ever studied with anyone, perhaps the method school of acting, but he says no. he just does it.

    Format: DVD
    Being the fan of Sophia Coppola that I am, `Somewhere' was my most anticipated film from last year. I literally could not wait to see it, so much so that I downloaded it to my computer months before it was released in theaters near me so that I could watch it.

    For me, `Somewhere' doesn't quite live up to my expectations.

    First things first, this is not a bad film at all. In fact, it is a very good film. Some of my friends have noted that they feel this is Coppola's most mature offering, and in many ways I totally agree. She has a beautiful knack for fleshing out the humanity in her stories with such graceful subtlety. She masters that here, allowing the fluid movement of the scenes to do most of the talking. While some would make sweeping statements that this is, `by far', we worst film, I can only half agree. While she shows definite maturity here, this is my least favorite of her films. In that same respect though, I can't say `by far' since the film is a very good film. I just found it too familiar. Coppola often regurgitates similar themes in her films, but she manages to make them feel fresh and unique to her own style. She doesn't quite manage that here. It drips with style (it is beautiful to look at and it moves with the grace and fluidity that we expect from Coppola) but it feels too rehashed to be anything monumentally moving. It felt like 'Lost in Translation' lite. I really liked it, and the performances are beautifully detailed, but the film itself reaches short of the greatness I was expecting.

    From my blog: [...]

    There's beauty in the way Sofia Coppola's Somewhere unfolds. Its performances are brilliantly understated yet nuanced, its dialogue is natural and witty and Coppola's patient direction always seems to make the right choices. The film is mostly subdued as its cadence is relaxing and never rushed. This is wonderfully illustrated in a scene in which the film's main subject Hollywood star Johnny Marco (Stephen Dorff) sits, calmly breathes through his nose and waits for a special effects mold covering his entire face to dry. It's incredibly serene as it's such a departure from Johnny's life.

    Coppola's first great move was the casting of Dorff as Johnny, the 30-something, black Ferrari-driving movie star who lives at the Chateau Marmont in his own La Dolce Vita--a life of booze, pills and readily available floozies (not the only subconscious homage to Fellini's film). This is key as we don't already attribute this lifestyle to Dorff, because frankly we're not familiar with his career and he doesn't seem to be in the tabloids much. Casting an A-list star would've resulted in a much different tone and possibly made the Johnny Marco character a caricature of another famous celebrity. This makes him more believable.

    Johnny merely seems to be going through the motions of this rock star lifestyle and often looks bored (He falls asleep to the Shannon twins pole dancing in his hotel room!) and without a purpose. His drinking is frequent and his relationships with women are hollow and vapid--in fact, the only woman he can confide in is his ex-wife. Despite this we feel for Johnny because he is easy-going, likeable and generally good to people. Moreover, he's chivalrous around his ex-wife and a decent father when he is around his daughter.
