A quiet heartbreaker. Trading "Lost in Translation's" Tokyo hotel for Beverly Hills' Chateau Marmont, the ever-perceptive writer-director further hones her gifts for ruefully funny observation and understated melancholy with this low-key portrait of a burned-out screen actor...

Sofia Coppola returns to the daddy-daughter theme but audiences are likely to be left bemused or exasperated...

Coppola stays close to the details and innuendoes of the story, making every shot count. With lots of fixed-frame shots and occasionally playing out scenes in real time, the film has a relaxed indie rhythm and laid-back style that mimics the way young Hollywood actor Johnny Marco (Stephen Dorff) coasts through life.

should have been called Sowhat

Slow and meditative is a very kind way of saying boring. I have just seen this film with a full cinema of mixed ages and most of us would have asked for our money back - it was that unenjoyable. Come on Sofia you can do better and Venice what were you thinking - a Golden Lion!!!!

Like all of Sofia Coppola's films, this is meditative (ie: slowish) and observational. I can see how some wouldn't like it, but it's a breath of fresh air compared to what else is about. I thought it was very beautiful and interesting through out.
