USA 2010, 97 minutes
Dir. Sofia Coppola
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama / Independent

Topics: Showbiz.


Aroview: Sofia Coppola's dead-pan portrait of a roguish Hollywood actor whose routine of empty hedonism and naval-gazing is interrupted by an unexpected visit from his young daughter.

Supposedly inspired by her relationship with her famous director father, it also overtly shares themes with her previous films about people trapped in gilded cages, but feels deliberately scaled down after the excesses of MARIE ANTOINETTE. The contemplative pace and style is pure 60s/70s arthouse, and it's nice to see one-time Gen-X pin-up Stephen Dorff dusted off after a decade of action B-movies, but its a film that like his listless protagonist can't seemingly break out of its own self-indulgent rut.
