It Don't Mean a Thing if It Ain't Got That Bling

Really looking foward to seeing "The Bling Ring." I always enjoy Sofia Coppola's films, but I can never decide if it's for the right reason or not. They're shallow and overly stylized, and about shallow and overly stylized people, yet I find it deep and intellectual of her to be interested in people like this, despite myself. "The Bling Ring" is based on that group of fame-obsessed girls who went around robbing people like Paris Hilton and Audrina Patridge(!) a few years ago, before getting caught and exposed as the kind of morons who would, well, want to rob people like Paris Hilton and Audrina Patridge. The New York Times has a great interview with Sofia, in which she seems as confused by all of this as I am. Read HERE.
