LICK THE STAR
Sofia Coppola / 1998 / 14 mins / DCP
A duo of distinguished father-daughter debuts. After dabbling in nudies, Francis Ford Coppola officially began his brilliant career under the tutelage of Roger Corman with this shot-in-Ireland, Psycho-inspired exploitation number, in which the young director’s genius for gothic filigree is given full, delirious expression. Thirty-five years later, Sofia Coppola showed her sensuous storytelling sensibility entirely developed in her short Lick the Star, a languorous, punk-inflected tale of high school skullduggery featuring family friend Peter Bogdanovich as the principal.
