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.

Sorry, this movie was way too boring and uneventful for my taste. I think Sophia Coppola was trying for that Japanese or French feel in this movie, but it really just didn't work. There is a style of Japanese and French filmmaking (although the two are quite different from each other) in which the pace is really slow, and very little happens, but the characters' reactions are the central theme. I believe Coppola was going for that, but swung and missed mightily. Sorry, but Sophia Coppola is 0 for 3 with me: I really didn't like "The Virgin Suicides," "Lost in Translation," or this movie.

I think the look that Sophia was going for was an improved movie, wherein the characters' reactions are improved and completely natural and in the spur of the moment. I think this movie had a script though. For whatever reason, this movie had no spontaneity and the thing that was supposed to be the payoff just wash't there. Is Stephen Dorff interesting and good enough to carry this movie? Unfortunately, not really. His reactions aren't big enough or animated enough. When it is time to deliver, it just seems like Stephen Dorff is kind of a lightweight. I want to like him, but he lacks gravity. Dorff came up in that late '80s trend with other brooding bad boys like River Phoenix, Christian Slater, and Keanu Reeves. They were supposed to be good looking, and dangerous bad boys that the troubled chicks could hang a poster of on their walls. The only thing is that these guys were more looks and moody atmosphere than they were talent. Dorff fits perfectly into that jig saw puzzle. Like I said, I want to like this guy, but there is usually just kind of a blank look on his face. He was supposed to get by on his bad boy image and dark atmosphere, but his talent comes up a little bit short.

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.

Interesting movie. As a film maker Sophia Coppola is top notch. Despite this movies lack of any real plot, it held my interest and was well made. The actors did a great job in making me believe that they had a real relationship (Father/daughter). However, it is pretty boring and lacks any real story arc. Its basically about a newly popular Actor who is kind of a tool who kinda realizes this in the end and sort of tries to do better. There is a lot of subtle comment about the superficiality of Hollywood (duh, we knew this), and again a well made film, but lacks the Awesomeness of say, Lost in Translation.

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.
