Just watched SOMEWHERE by Sofia Coppola and recently also read Sheila Heti's (pictured) book HOW SHOULD A PERSON BE?   The two seemed similar in some way.   I guess in the honesty of their female perspective.   Loved them both, though it's painful as a guy to experience how girls think of us.   Sofia Coppola can be especially brutal.  In VIRGIN SUICIDES there's this scene where the dad opens a beer and watches a football game that I swear, is the most painful thing I've ever watched on film.   The emptiness Coppola sees there, it's horrifying.
