...one of the great cinematic portraits of a city.

While Dorff seems to be playing a variation on his own bratty star persona, Fanning is absolutely luminous and butterfly-delicate in Somewhere, and she's the real reason to take this journey.

A hopeful, lovely, easy breezy charming piece of moviemaking, Somewhere is going everywhere.
October 23, 2019
Probably the subtlest film in Coppola's short career to date, Somewhere is collection of snapshots and episodes, without payoff in the conventional sense. It simply builds to a cumulative evocation of aimlessness, like a holiday without end.

A story about the ordinary of being a star in the movie business. [Full review in Spanish]
February 4, 2019
Coppola riffs on her familiar signature of style (diegesis as time, observation and the senses, rather than dramaturgy) and subject matter (cocooned, disaffected malcontents).
November 17, 2018
More tone poem than film, Somewhere finds Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation) at her most untethered and experimental.
April 11, 2017
[Somewhere] is Coppola's subtle character study of a man who is barely a character.

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.

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
August 15, 2011
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
April 4, 2011
[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.
March 24, 2011
Whether or not the journey from nowhere to the possibility of somewhere is worth taking is going to vary wildly from viewer to viewer.
March 18, 2011
A thoughtful and interesting deconstruction and demythologizing of American celebrity
March 9, 2011
Although the film throbs with dissatisfaction and longing for purpose, Somewhere plays as a dryly funny meditation on being adrift in Hollywood.
March 4, 2011
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.
February 16, 2011
Coppola packs meaning into small actions or seemingly benign scenes that in any other film would immediately hit the cutting room floor
