‘Some­where’ is nowhere on list

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Reel News -

Here’s an in­trigu­ing list. Quentin Tarantino has an­nounced his 20 favourite films of 2010, and it’s a pretty main­stream bunch. His top five are, in or­der, Toy Story 3, The So­cial Net­work, An­i­mal King­dom (an Aus­tralian


crime drama), I Am Love and Tangled.

What’s par­tic­u­larly in­ter­est­ing is that Tarantino didn’t find space in his top 20 for Sofia Cop­pola’s Some­where. Read­ers may re­call that the Ital­ian press cried foul when he awarded the top prize at the Venice Film Fes­ti­val to the so­porific drama. It was noted that Tarantino and Cop­pola used to date, and they re­main friends. The King’s Speech made the top 20. So did Jack­ass 3D. But the film that he said “en­chanted us from its first screen­ing” was nowhere to be seen. You’re not do­ing your­self any favours, Quentin old man.
