The Reviews for Lick the Star (1998) 720p

Early short demonstrates strengths but doesn't amount to muchReviewed byFramescourerVote: 7/10

Dictated by thin experience (of both life and industry) and no cash Sofia Coppola's early short is almost by necessity an observational piece set on a high school campus. The cast are rather weak and do not benefit from being shot in b&w (it's difficult to tell the characters apart). The sound editing does little to help a simple story of fickle teenage allegiance.

Yet there are one or two things to note. Inamongst the inconsistent editing the high school campus is filmed with a balance of aspirant wide and intimate close-up shots. The editing-to-music also creates an interest and momentum (without descent into the netherworld of the Music Video). Coppola clearly made an attempt to vary the pace of the film. The dramatic turn is cut fast and to-the-point and the second act is almost non-existent; we recognise it's actually been played out in tandem with the first, which is the point of the narrator-on-crutches trope (who is an otherwise curiously appended character in that first act).

Despite these notes it's an awkward short. 2/10

Sofia Coppola's Lick the Star (1998)Reviewed byTheDelusionistVote: 8/10

Chloe (Audrey Kelly) is the school's 'queen bee' obsessed with Virginia Andrews' Flowers in the Attic. Bored with school and somewhat annoyed with the immature boys her age, she and the girls in her clique start scheming something strange. Lick the star is the name of their 'extra- scholastic' project involving the boy's lunches, rat poison and raw eggs. However before Chloe is able to carry out her evil plan some false rumors about her are spread around school. All of a sudden she's not the 'superstar' anymore, but the one being bullied. Sick of being made fun of, she decides to go the melodramatic route trying to end her life.

Shot in 16 millimeter crispy clean, beautiful bright black and white by Lance Acord, that went on to collaborate with Sofia Coppola more notably on Lost in Translation and Marie Antoinette; Lick the Star is Coppola's first 'solo' director credit. Many of Sofia's directorial and writing trademarks and themes are already present in what's only her second short film. Just like with every feature film, Sofia has consistently experimented with different visual styles to fit her stories. Working and casting friends and family, her brother Roman behind the camera, her cousin Robert Schwartzman in an acting role and Zoe Cassavetes in both, this working approach reinforces the notion that all of Sofia's films are passion projects.

It's her thoughtfulness and attention to detail that makes them so enjoyable and endlessly re- watchable. It's all in the little, exquisite touches: Like shooting 'on location' (R.L.S. Junior High), a killer shoegaze soundtrack (especially the last track) and a cameo by director Peter Bogdanovich himself (as the principal). Lick the Star is all about 'teen angst' and what it means to be a teenager. Sofia really understands the subject matter and is more than capable to transmit emotion and recreating a specific time and place. Coppola's unique vision comes from her courage to paint a genuinely innocent, na?ve and very 'girly' picture, that she went on exploring in her next film The Virgin Suicides. Her offbeat humor, poetic flair and fascination with the idea of celebrity, also already come to the forefront in this authentic, cute and super-sweet short film.

Reasonable; a quick jolt of feeling...Reviewed byHasekVote: 3/10

Well, I must say, I initially found this short to be quite average, but having watched it nearly 5 times since (its constantly shown on IFC), I've developed an enjoyment of the simple plot elements and reality of the situations presented. Sofia Coppola contributes a solid addition to the category.
