Presently intoxicated. Never before have I felt such respect for Sofia Coppola.
First time watching Marie Antoinette.
I have seen Somewhere, Lost in Translation, The Virgin Suicides before tonight.
My family had generous reserves of Benedictine, i.e. a full bottle, for use tonight.
The soundtrack I thought worked wonderfully, although I did have uncertainties about the diageticity of the music being played, e.g. the dancing scene.
Would recommend to fellow suburban aristocrats.
In short, I admire Coppola in a more purely feminine capacity, perhaps, than I admire any other director.
The "I love candy" montage worked well, but I wonder what budget could have been allocated to recording an original track from instruments available during the time of the film's setting.
