monday musing – Sofia Coppola


"It’s always more intriguing to imagine what’s happening, as opposed to seeing everything, because then you can use your imagination. I always wanted to be at a distance."



“The unexpected connections we make might not last, yet stay with us forever”
– Lost in Translation



“That's the way I work: I try to imagine what I would like to see.”



“You're considered superficial and silly if you are interested in fashion, but I think you can be substantial and still be interested in frivolity.”


"My movies are not about being, but becoming."


"I like telling the story in a visual way. I don't like explaining a lot in dialogue."



"Forget the audience, make what you want to see."



"I love that feeling of when it's touching and makes you happy but there's a melancholy or bittersweet glaze to it."
