Paris Texas. But that's already been done.
How about bout de souffle (Breathless)? Jean Seberg was stunning, such a tragedy.

Really? I loved the movie. Such a departure from the hum-drum period pieces and biopics so regularly foisted on us. I admire it for being different. And for me, I thought it showed a really interesting side to a famous woman. The party scenes, endless decadence, and fun music helped to liven up the film a bit. And I mean, it's so ridiculously gorgeous you could watch it on mute and it'd still be a masterpiece visually.


but I guess it's not everybody's cup of tea.

I think this is what she ment. it seems to be a visual only proyect. I wouldn't even get near to call it a masterpiece, only a hype movie that mixes scene kids with history icons.

I so agree with you. I think the movie the duchess was much better even tho it was quite depressing and sad IMO

Well I submit that the story works very well and that Sofia Coppola's choice to include music from when she was growing up, hundreds of years later, to have everyone at court speaking the way each individual actors speaks, to focus on the decadence....I think it helps make Marie a more relateable character. That a 14 would get shipped off to a foreign land, forced to marry someone she didn't choose, was given every possible luxury and then blamed for taking advantage....it really makes her a more sympathetic character. The movie is like...magic. It's so dreamy, calm, luxurious... I've never seen anything like it. However, it is primarily a visual movie and there's nothing wrong with that. Some movies are all about clever dialogue and they skimp on attractive visuals. Some movies are all about character drama. It takes all kinds. Marie Antoinette happens to flourish beyond almost any other films in the visual department and so in that respect, I can't even see that one could argue it's value. Obviously different people want different things in movies. I thought The Duchess, for example, was too melodramatic, even though for the most part I liked it a great deal.


As for The Duchess

^Marie Antoinette is actually my favorite film, and it's sad that everyone reads it the way they do. It's not really a period drama at all. The viewer shouldn't expect the same thing as they would from a film like The Duchess a huge climax or anything, because rather than focusing on telling a story, Coppola spends the entire film elaborating on a mood. The movie's just as much about melancholy as it is Marie Antoinette, and it's not too dissimilar from Lost in Translation, which on the other hand got oodles of critical acclaim.

I think a lot of people find it easy to write off though because of the complete superficiality of the characters, but really, isn't that the point? The whole film shows rich kids dressing up and spending their money on parties and cakes and clothes, but beneath it all, there's a palpable sense of their boredom and ennui. Other directors have done some very similar things, (Antonioni comes to mind right away) but for whatever reason they've been celebrated because of their use of visuals and slow narratives. I'm not going to argue that this particular Coppola deserves a place up there with the masters of cinema, but it'd be nice if she got some credit for her most ambitious project.

I'm over Sofia's movies (poor little rich girl stories are the most boring of all!) but I'll happily look at the screencaps

Lost in Translation was one of my favorite movies of the decade. But I understand why some people don't like it...
