In front of the mirror, Rebecca looks to deposit tiny particles of drops scented on his neck. 24 frames a second slow, and the time seems to be suspended, such as when Johnny was legs endless spinning around a bar lap-dance on the heights of Los Angeles, or that Charlotte was losing the thread of his thoughts to Tokyo. The melancholy and reverie are still present in the films of Sofia Coppola, but this time they have little place in the face of material concerns of the protagonists.
When we live in the beautiful neighborhoods of L. A., it is daily to be found on the beach after class to smoke a joint while watching the vague horizon. Jaded quickly in this single view, we prefer to plan an evening so much more exciting : the theft of clothes and money among the peoples, driving luxury cars, and buckling of tickets in the club.
We had left Sofia Coppola in the arms of an actor looser in Somewhere to find in the middle of a band of teens whose greatest passion is to take pictures to update their profile to Facebook and make them jealous of their classmates. The ghosts of the Chateau Marmont, therefore, have given place to beings as disembodied, animated by the single desire to own a pair of Louboutin. Inspired by a true story, the filmmaker gives us the opportunity to see this little superficial world turning on itself : some sell their lives in the tabloids, while others dream of looking like them.
This variation on the vacuum is sometimes tinged with a touch of cynicism, but Sofia Coppola gets trapped in this boredom that she describes. With a staging supported that emphasizes each about and the lack of dialogue, the viewer is also the long time before this merry band of crooks. While the idleness and the absence of parental figures cause violent situations in a Larry Clark, here the kitchens in marble, the beet juice at breakfast, and thoughts of New-Age create of Narcissus. Emptiness and self-absorption in a society where it is necessary to flaming, the filmmaker looks at them do their little game without judgment. From a moral, right-thinking with some funny moments particularly in the face of a mother who teaches the virtues of a life ” Angelina Jolie “.
Gifted to give an account to the screen of an I-don’t-know-what of the air of the time, the filmmaker places his camera and shows that young girls today would sell their soul to enter the dressing room of Paris Hilton. It is well known that The devil wears Prada and a Chanel gown is worth more than a friendship. The character with the most interesting is that of Matt, the only boy of the band. Perhaps more than the other, it will have lost a friend and a love. But, he confesses, at the end, he won 800 friends on Facebook. And it makes him happy. Ultimately nothing is serious, everything can be bought and eaten. Like that movie, as soon as viewed, immediately forgotten.
