It’s been great to have positive reviews, especially because for so long I put myself completely into it. You’re so vulnerable putting yourself up to be reviewed, so it’s exciting that they see something in it that I intended.

”You’re considered superficial and silly if you are interested in fashion, but I think you can be substantial and still be interested in frivolity.”

i feel like the problem with criticisms of sofia coppola’s movies is that her perspective is just so, so uniquely female and she allows femininity to touch every aspect of her narratives and that’s not something that reviewers or film industry insiders are used to

when marie antoinette came out at cannes it was booed and critics had a field day ripping it to shreds for not being historically accurate or focused on the politics of the french revolution and sofia coppola just had to come out and say “that wasn’t the fucking point i wanted to tell a story about a teenage girl and so i made narrative and stylistic choices that reflect the experiences and emotions of teenage girls it wasn’t supposed to be a true-to-life historical documentary calm down does looking at history from a stylized, female perspective really bother you that much”

and the criticism of the bling ring was similar critics were like “where’s the moral compass where’s the biting social commentary” like oh my god i’m sorry she didn’t hit you over the head with it i’m sorry she didn’t give you a neat conclusion i’m sorry her characters were morally grey i’m sorry that she’s using the language of young women in order to tell a story about young women and you’re too fucking dumb to recognize that because you’re so used to seeing films written by men and directed by men and starring men

Tales from the set…
Marie Antoinette - Sofia Coppola
While her father famously sweated, shouted and swore his way through his epic films, his daughter is a Zen-calm presence on set, the still centre of the organised chaos that is a film shoot. ‘I’m not a yeller,’ she says, smiling. Her cousin, Schwartzman, whom she cast as Louis XVI in Marie Antoinette, said recently of the experience, ‘I never saw her freak out once. She’s totally calm, she’s like this lighthouse.’

 “I never studied directing and never really thought about doing it, and then I just found myself in that situation and tried it. I like to be observing everything else, and I get self-conscious in front of the camera.”

“It’s about misunderstandings between people and places, being disconnected and looking for moments of connection. There are so many moments in life when people don’t say what they mean, when they are just missing each other, waiting to run into each other in a hallway.”
— Sofia Coppola (on Lost in Translation)
