    There are these little kinds of movies I love, the kinds that make me really want to do something. It can be something weird, like Sideways made me want to go tour wine country, Black Swan made me want to take up ballet (it would have been beautiful, I'm sure), One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest made me want to go to the mental hospital and hang out with some cool dudes like Danny DeVito, Christopher Lloyd and Jack Nicholson.…

    Bill Murray's acting in Sofia Coppola's "Lost in Translation" is surely one of the most exquisitely controlled performances in recent movies. Without it, the film could be unwatchable. With it, I can't take my eyes away. Not for a second, not for a frame, does his focus relax, and yet it seems effortless. It's sometimes said of an actor that we can't see him acting. I can't even see him not acting. He seems to be existing, merely existing, in…

    The most talented director beauty since Kathryn Bigelow Sofia Coppola is back with more good films. Kudos to these two talented beauties for bringing good cinema back along with other talented directors.

    I love Bill Murray. He is my spirit animal. I've never once had a regret about him in a movie (except Garfield, maybe). He was the best part of this movie. He plays the lost middle aged man so well, so he's perfect for this part. He can be as dramatic as he is funny, and he is both in Lost in Translation. Scarlett Johansson was good too, and the directing at certain points was beautiful, but I just felt…

    After a recent stint of horror films, ‘Lost In Translation’ was a delightful retreat from the bleakness of the dark recesses of the human mind as it explored the budding relationship between two strangers in Tokyo. With both of our main characters being at a standstill within their respective careers, it seems as though they are also in limbo between their past lifestyle and the ones that they would ideally like to lead.

    With the large age gap between Bob…

    The first time I saw this film I thought it was brilliant. The second time I saw it I was disgusted at Coppola's fetishizing of Japan's exoticness. It took me almost a decade to watch it a third time. This time I felt I was ready. I felt like I had had an epiphany: Coppola was lying when she said she made this movie because she loves Tokyo--it's really about feeling stuck in her marriage. In an oft-quoted interview promoting…

    A true masterpiece. An instant classic, perfection on a screen. This is a film about living, loving, and knowing that some things won't last forever. Casual moviegoers and cinephiles alike can love this film, as well as anyone in between. This is a film that just makes you feel, it really is magical. This film looks beautiful and feels beautiful. Murray and Johannson (also beautiful) are amazing, and I can't think of a film that incorporates music more wonderfully. This is more a lot of gushing than it is a review, but that's all I can do when I watch this film.

    It's hard for me to watch many films twice. I feel as if I can gather my thoughts in one viewing and move on. However, there occasionally comes a film that is so profound, so emotionally magnetic, that I have to watch it at least every month. I cannot count the number of times I've watched 'Lost in Translation'. Perhaps it's because it's the easiest and fulfilling movie I've ever watched. In most films there is an absence of human…

    It's an alluring, yet depressing character study of an impossible couple of lovers stuck in a country where they're lost in translation. Presented by the daughter of The Godfather's director, this 'silent' movie also presents Johansson's young self with Ghostbusters' Murray who becomes alive in vain.
    A worthwatched movie.

    With another trip to Tokyo imminent, decided to rewatch Sofia Coppola's best film, to me at least.

    A few points to put out in like my 48th rewatch of this classic film:

    1) Just realized Bill Murray's character Bob Harris had a epiphany in terms of reinvigorating his ailing mid life status when he told his wife he wanted to start to steer into looking after his health and well being.

    2) The one night stand with the red head…
