Movie Review – “Somewhere”
Sofia Coppola is a director that many people love or loathe, but even though her movies are hardly mainstream, they do attract considerable critical and commercial success. Her film “Lost in Translation” cost $4 million to make, and took in a hefty $120 million at worldwide. Her latest movie “Somewhere” premiered at last year’s Venice Film Festival, where it was awarded the Golden Lion as best movie. In “Somewhere”, Steven Dorff plays movie star Johnnie de Marco, who is hanging out aimlessly, mostly at the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood, in the company of his eleven year old daughter Cleo, Elle Fanning. Gary Pollard’s with us to review it.
Sculptor Danny Lee
We begin part two with a chance to catch up on exhibition you may have missed. It’s called “Landscape Reinterpreted” and it’s by one of Hong Kong’s best-known sculptors Danny Lee Chin-fai. The exhibition ended last Sunday, but you can still see plenty of Danny’s work from the past few decades in a new book about his art, “Sculpture of Reflections: The Art of Danny Lee Chin-fai.”
