i'm watch PLATINUM on upn and i was surpised to see that sofia coppola created and wrote and is executive producer (along with francis ford coppola) of ths series.  i just thought it was cool!   actually PLATINUM is a lot like THE GODFATHER, the only difference is instead of the mafia it's a rap record label empire.

can't wait til LOST IN TRANSLATION comes out.  now i must buy THE VIRGIN SUICIDE dvd.

I kinda wanted to see Platinum before now...just looked a little interesting. But now I'll definitely have to try to catch it.

Ah, who am I kidding? I've never been able to keep up with a show for more than two or three episodes (not counting The Simpsons). But that's awesome that she'd doing a show on the subject. I hope there is a token character who promotes quality hip hop!

I loved the first half of The Virgin Suicides. I mean loved it ! But as soon as Hartnett came into the picture and turned it into a couple movie I lost all interest.

I enjoyed the way it was shot, though. I'll look for her future stuff.

The second feature film from writer-director Sofia Coppola (The Virgin Suicides) is set in Tokyo, where two bored Americans — a fading TV star (Bill Murray) shooting an alcohol ad and a young married woman (Scarlett Johansson) with an ambitious, neglectful husband — become fast friends after meeting in a hotel bar. The two then spend an adventure-filled weekend together "finding themselves."


........that's all I could find

Release Date: September 19th, 2003 (LA/NY); expands to other cities at later dates

Cast: Scarlett Johansson, Bill Murray, Anna Faris, Giovanni Ribisi

Premise: This is the story of two Americans, a washed-up TV star (Murray) in town for a TV whiskey commercial shoot, and the (very) young wife (Johansson) of a photographer, who meet in Tokyo, Japan and end up spending a weekend hanging out there together on a "soul-searching mission."

I love The Virgin Suicides...it's one of the most beautiful, most haunting films I've seen. And yes, I also hate Josh Hartnett...but he's pretty good in it. Everybody really is. I definitely have to buy the dvd. I need to see it again to really appreciate it to the fullest. Sofia is the best female director working today for what that's worth (there's so few!).

And yeah, Lost in Translation sounds awesome too...Murray is a genius, Scarlett is awesome. I hope Murray's character is like a burned out Peter Venkman after getting fired from his weird ESP, psychic show from Ghostbusters II...that would be damn funny. He's never been funnier than in the GB movies imo.

they play her B&W short on IFC sometimes.  she obviously has talent, and the Virgin Suicides was a great, haunting film.

This really isn't a Sofia Coppola movie (or part movie), but have any of you seen New York Stories?
Wasn't the Coppola one just bad?

I am a fan of all three directors, and Scorsese's was pretty good, and Allen's was funny, but the Coppola one was just bad bad bad...

The only reason I bring this up here is because Francis directed it and cowrote it with Sofia...

Bad bad bad...

Life without Zoe was...well, it was...ummm...tolerable ? Yeah, it wasn't as good as the other two but I could sit through it. With Four Rooms, the first two rooms had me wanting to slit my wrists (mind you, I would have just fastforwarded but the remote was across the room and suicide would have been so much easier).

Wow!  What a great review!!!  I'm going to go nuts waiting for this movie to come out.  It sounds fucking beautiful...."Bill Murray gives one of his best performances!"  And how can you go wrong with Scarlet!
