Somewhere is a lifeless exercise of routine and repression.

Somewhere has its funny moments, and its clever moments, but the blankness and passivity of the central character make it peculiarly remote, as if you were watching it from a million miles away.

Somewhere is like a slow-moving bullet with no clear aim.

Somewhere, regrettably but unsurprisingly, is that same old yarn all over again-artfully crafted, intermittently amusing, relentlessly self-indulgent, and structurally identical to Lost in Translation.

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

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.

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

A poor little princess' plaint about the burdens of being special.

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 emocin, y perdiendo ante la inevitable comparacin con Perdidos en Tokio (la mejor pelcula de Sofia Coppola hasta la fecha, con la que tiene demasiadas cosas en comn).

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.

Somewhere begins with a fancy sports car driving in circles out in the desert. It's a great-looking machine, but it isn't taking us anywhere. It's a metaphor for the entire movie.
February 5, 2011
In Somewhere Sofia Coppola meanders into the territory of Michelangelo Antonioni, the Italian director who made ennui into art. She makes ennui into ennui.
February 4, 2011
It seems impossible that this heavy-handed, self-serious movie comes from writer-director Sofia Coppola.
February 3, 2011
Just an expensive-looking sports car driving in circles and going nowhere fast.
January 28, 2011
Sofia Coppola's 2003 Lost in Translation was such an unblinking masterpiece -- one of the two or three best films of its entire decade -- that it's a shock to witness the near-worthlessness of Somewhere.
January 24, 2011
Time for Coppola to get out of her comfort zone, maybe adapt a novel.

Fame is a vampire: We've heard it before. We don't need to hear it again.
