The Virgin Suicides

Directed by Sofia Coppola. 1999. 97 mins. "Men reminisce about five intriguing sisters."

Surreal and unique, original investigation into 70's era suburban teenage angst. The narrative structure is quintessentially "postmodern" in that there are different narrators at different times and is non-chronological as it jumps between voices and times, though the narrative is still perfectly unified and unconfusing. She seems to borrow from numerous gnres as she even employs some comical techniques from silly comedies, such as fantasy montages and cutaways.

Sofia truly redeems herself after in many viewers eyes, single-handedly ruined Godfather Part III! Lost In Translation was also marvelous.

Starring James Woods, Kathleen turner, Kirsten Dunst, Josh Hartnett, Hanna R. Hall, Chelse Swain.
