Cinema of the Bored and Apathetic

The trailer for Sofia Copolla’s Somewhere — starring Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning — is out now. Whether you like it (and the movie, presumably) probably will depend on what you thought of Lost in Translation and The Virgin Suicides, as Somewhere looks very similar tonally. I’d suggest that the storyline — or the thematic meandering — also looks similar to Lost in Translation, only instead of a young girl and an older man, Somewhere follows a father and his daughter. I might submit, however, that Stephen Dorff is no Bill Murray (although, I give the edge to Elle Fanning over Scarlett Johansson).

In other words, the movie will either worm its way into your soul like cinematic mist, or it will bore the ever-living crap out of you. It could go either way, really.
