Review: 'Somewhere' 'Two Jews On Film' Say This Movie Goes Nowhere (Video)
Johnny Marco (Stephen Dorff) is a divorced, irresponsible super star, roaming aimlessly through life, in Sofia Coppola's new film 'Somewhere'. Johnny is living in West Hollywood's famous Chateau Marmont. An unscheduled visit from his 11 year old daughter (Elle Fanning) requires him to pay attention to her and eventually, question his life and face up to the things every father has to confront. But does he? We watch Johnny drive his Lamborghini through the streets of L.A, going nowhere, in way too many scenes. We watch him eat a hamburger, and play Wii with his daughter. We follow him to Italy where he hangs out in his hotel room, venturing out only once to accept an award. This is a guy that is totally not interesting. Simply put Johnny Marco is one boring dude and we just don't care about him. How could we? When it seems his biggest problem is lack of passion and motivation. We never get inside Marco's skin. Ms Coppola is supposedly making some profound statement on the price of fame...but in the end...it just doesn't work. The 'Two Jews On Film' give this film their lowest bagel score to date. Opens in theaters, Wednesday, December 22, 2010.
