Sofia Coppola

I just spent a good few months studying Sofia Coppola and her three main films for an A Level exam I recently did, so I thought I would share my favourite stills that I took. Even after all this time I'm still undecided about her... Obviously the visuals are amazing, but how much of this is down to her? Because of her father she was able to hire costume/set designers like the Oscar winning Milena Canonero (A Clockwork Orange) for Marie Antoinette, obviously the most visually rich of the three.

The Virgin Suicides, 1999 (my favourite)

I can't believe I still haven't seen The Virgin Suicides...tut tut! Did you spot the stray Converse shoe in Marie Antoinette? Loved that touch, and the soundtrack. The film itself I was nonplussed about. But I do still *heart* Sofia...
Nice blog by the way :)
