Well before The Bling Ring, Somewhere, or Lost in Translation, Sofia Coppola had started turning in 1998 Lick The Star, a short film in black and white and visible in its entirety on the Internet.
Girls put in place a secret plan code-named “Lick the star”.
To be honest, I have a lot of trouble with the films of Sofia Coppola. Apart from Somewhere, the simplicity works, I find his films shallow, pretentious and vain. I left with a lot of preconceptions… and I loved this short film. If one finds here and there some of the themes dear to Sofia Coppola, the film has a real plot, and ellipses do not detract from the pace of the film, which is going super fast. Finally, some plans are very well chosen. A very good surprise.
