Somewhere ★★★★

you spend the first half watching women throw themselves at this guy loitering thru life. but the way he brightens up whenever he's just vibing and being there for elle fanning is so, so bittersweet. it's irritating at first but the entire movie as a collage of long takes works so well. nothing much happens in each take but the moments are spread out over minutes, captured like a more faithful still image.

i'd argue this is more a spiritual sequel to Lost in Translation more than On the Rocks ever was.
