It offers satisfactions and contentment: It's a succession of sensations, of being adrift in a city where the weather seldom changes, where the stars are always young, where children must make their own way. The sky is blue and clear.

It's more of a vibe than a movie. The atmosphere is enticing, I just wish it added up to more.

Unflinchingly honest and confidently challenging, this is an all around incredible film.

Even with its irritating ending, there's something so relatable about Marco that makes the story go, well, somewhere

Even so-called "slow cinema" shouldn't be this dull.

In "Somewhere," what ends up happening is that the main character's lack of interest becomes the audience's burden.

A movie star and his neglected daughter bond while partaking in the celeb-filled glamour of the Chateau Marmont.

Sofia Coppola gives us a first-class ticket to nowhere

This is a film about vacuousness that's without much substance itself.

[Coppola] examines boredom, privilege, torpor, laziness and adolescent daydreams with a kind of molasses slowness that no one else can touch. That's good because no other American filmmaker is really trying to touch it anyway.

The question is 'why should we care?' Yes Johnny's problems are real, but they're not going to mean much to anyone else. And when you've got a character and story that are true but unrelatable, all the craft in the world isn't going to help.

En principio atractiva e interesante, finalmente resulta previsible y carente de emoción, y perdiendo ante la inevitable comparación con Perdidos en Tokio (la mejor película de Sofia Coppola hasta la fecha, con la que tiene demasiadas cosas en común).

Whether or not the journey from nowhere to the possibility of somewhere is worth taking is going to vary wildly from viewer to viewer.

A thoughtful and interesting deconstruction and demythologizing of American celebrity

Although the film throbs with dissatisfaction and longing for purpose, Somewhere plays as a dryly funny meditation on being adrift in Hollywood.

Like Coppola's previous films, 'Somewhere' examines the isolation (and cultural dislocation) of privileged public people -- people enclosed within the exposing fishbowl of celebrity and the protective bubble of entitlement.

A superficial movie about beautiful people, when it needed to be a beautiful film about superficial people. Lacks the magic of Coppola's best movies.

Coppola has shamelessly retreated to what worked for her before in Lost in Translation.
