While I’m on the subject of movies...
Life is too short to waste time on watching films by Sophie Coppola. Foolish enough to believe rave reviews about Lost in Translation, I lost a bunch of timing watching this indecipherable film. Giving the girl a second chance, I started to watch Marie Antoinette, but switched it off after a few scenes. I will not make this mistake a third time, even if one of her movies (Somewhere) is running for free on television (obviously, few wanted to pay money to see it in theaters...which does not surprise me). I would rather spend my time staring out the window at falling leaves.
I’m sure that she is a nice girl and means well, but her movies are not worth use of my precious time on this earth...
