Ever since Sofia Coppola released The Virgin Suicides in 1999, she has been one of the most consistently talked about directors in the world of independent cinema. Arguably the most prominent female director of her generation, her films incorporate a variety of personalities and span from 18th century France to 21st century America, all while retaining a signature style that remains all her own. From the rococo Versailles of Marie Antoinette to the dreamlike 1970s Michigan of the Lisbon sisters, technicolor modern day Tokyo and Hollywood’s lush Chateau Marmont, her atmospheres are just as much a part of the films as the characters themselves. For the fourth installment of Team Video’s Directors Series, Allan and Nicole discuss a mutual favorite and her impressive body of work. Download, stream or listen via iTunes.
