    Going into this movie I knew I would like it because it blended some of my very favorite things:
    -Japanese culture
    -Night films
    -and of course Bill m-f'in Murray
    This film did not disappoint even though I am still very perplexed by it and curious of it's true intention. I loved the simplicity and melancholic tone of the entire film. Murray's performance is obvious amazing and this is by far my favorite role of Johansson's. The use of Tokyo as…

    A film so lauded you want to deny its excellence, but it's just so lovely, you can't.

    If you try hard, of course, you could point to the minimal, quite underwhelming, script; the Japanese stereotyping; the sense of entitlement you sometimes get from these pampered Americans in Tokyo.

    But these cavils are as nothing when set beside the performance of Bill Murray: one of delicacy, truth and a perfect balance between sadness and resignation. He tones down his usual brand…

    I kept hearing how emotional this movie was for a longtime and it wasn't until the last few scenes where it really sunk in. I feel like this is one of those movies I have to watch a second time so that I can see it from the beginning with a new perspective.

    After watching this film, I can honestly say it is one of the most overrated movies I've seen.

    Fuck it. 5/5. I fell in love with this right here. This is such a delightful film, Johansson is so fvcking adorable. This movie will stick with me for a long time, I've been thinking about it constantly. One thing's for sure, this is Sofia Coppola's masterpiece.

    i like this movie more and more w every rewatch. it def has some racist stuff with like the misunderstandings at the photo shoot and whatever but overall it's a good film and i really don't think sofia coppola had bad intentions while making it so like. it's bothersome but it's not a complete disaster. ANYWAY i love this movie more and more every time i watch it. the setting is beautiful and i love love love love how distinctive of her most of it is. i can't even put into words everything i love about it. thank u sofia 4 this.

    this is a good movie held back slightly by its approach to "alien" culture. the film is, despite being entirely in tokyo, completely western––and japanese culture (and even physical characteristics, like shorter average height) is played off consistently for laughs. the film is at its strongest when it and the characters have a mature relationship to highly distinct cultures. some of the fish-out-of-water humor really works, other times (like the elevator scene) just feel like cheap shots that are really more for "us" to enjoy than for "them". film should aspire to a more universal language.
