It’s been nearly two years since Sofia Coppola’s divisive “The Bling Ring,” and while we’ll see the acclaimed director reunite with her one-time muse Bill Murray for a Christmas special later this year, her next full-length film — a live-action take on “The Little Mermaid” — is still a long way off. What better time to take a look at Coppola’s filmography and gaze upon the disaffected, unhappy protagonists of her films, all cut together for your convenience?
Edited by Movement Of Time, “Loneliness of Sofia Coppola” takes us on a five-minute journey through the time periods and landscapes of films like “Marie Antoinette.” Seeing actors like Kirsten Dunst here, or Murray in the world-conquering “Lost in Translation,” it seems that Coppola is fond of selling the loneliness and sadness of her characters by stranding them alone in beautifully framed shots.
Watch “Loneliness of Sofia Coppola” below and place bets on how sad Murray’s Christmas special will end up being. [35MM]
