I watched Marie Antoinette this past weekend. I really enjoyed it, as I have enjoyed Sofia Coppola's other films, Lost In Translation and The Virgin Suicides. Once again, Coppola has hit a home run with her musical tastes. Maybe I'm biased because I apparently love the same types of music as her, but her choices fit perfectly. My absolute favorite moment of Marie Antoinette was when the newly crowned couple were descending down the stairs, and The Cure's Plainsong explodes from the speakers. Fucking perfection. Another fave was when MA was wandering the fields while Aphex Twin's Avril 14th played. Again, it fits perfectly. I mean, really, there are tons of little moments like these that I really enjoyed. I like how the film presented Marie Antoinette as is and didn't seem to judge her. Another quality of the movie I enjoyed was how it captured a moment or a feeling, much in the same way Coppola did in LIT or TVS. That's my interpretation of it, anyways.
Aphex Twin > Avril 14th
