Sofia Coppola's 'Somewhere' -- nowhere in the Oscar race
Didn't I warn you that "Lost in Translation" was ridiculously overrated? Sofia Coppola has yet to live up to her overblown reputation as a filmmaker. Her subsequent screen venture "Marie Antoinette" went under the chopping block of film criticism. Now "Somewhere" is D.O.A.
"Somewhere" had some early Oscar buzz in some circles, but Jeffrey Wells (Hollywood Elsewhere) reports: "Sofia Coppola's 'Somewhere,' generally regarded as a minor effort compared to 'Lost in Translation,' is out of the awards game altogether."
Time magazine's Richard Corliss dismisses the movie as a disappointment.
