FACES OF AMERICAN CINEMA

Im Still Here, Somewhere

This essay is about the comparative analysis of two recent, but disparate films – the mock music documentary I’m Still Here (2010) by Casey Affleck and the drama Somewhere (2010) by Sofia Coppola, with a special emphasis on identity construction of the main character. Namely, both films deal with the everyday life of an identity-fragmented fallen film star. The life paths of both characters are unclear, which is distinctly implied by the inconclusive toponyms in the film titles. However, the ways and credibility of the representation of disorientation and incompleteness of their identity greatly differ between the first and the latter.
