    I feel like I appreciate this film far more now at thirty one than I did at twenty one. I fell into the hype around it's release, but never really connected with it.

    That changed today.

    Wonderful and warm, the chemistry between Johansson and Murray (who deserves every accolade he received for this) is infectious.

    So melancholic, and very beautiful. Similarly check out Broken Flowers :)

    I like how Coppola frames Johansson and Murray so it looks like they're these small puppy dogs in this big vast neon jungle.

    At its core, this movie is a story of friendship and the discontent everyone feels in modern life, amplified in a foreign country. This could be another "white person finds self in another country movie" but it isn't at all. It's more "people find people in the midst of loneliness."

    Two sad characters bonding over whiskey…

    In quite simply Sofia's best movie to date, Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson play two quite different Americans staying at the Park Hyatt in Tokyo and who form an unlikely bond over their shared culture shock. Both are experiencing life struggles, Murray with his long term marriage and Johansson in her new one and through their insomnia and excess free time (especially in Johansson's case) they form a touching friendship. Murray dishes out advice about life and family and Johansson…

    In Lost in Translation, Bill Murray's character Bob Harris finds himself, his marriage, and his career in a rut. He's in Japan shooting some whiskey commercials for a nice amount of money, staying in a lavish hotel, spending most of his time in a dimly lit bar listening to a British jazz band. Scarlett Johansson's character Charolette finds herself similarily trapped and dissatisfied with her marriage, and feels like an alien in the strange culture around her. This is the…

    Lost in Translation is one of those films that doesn't throw what it is trying to explain right in your face. It just plays out and lets you interpret it as you like. In my case, it was a film about loneliness in the most crowded places and how people feel their most vulnerable when surrounded by different people and colliding cultures.
    Bill Murray puts in a performance in a role specially designed for him - the washed-up actor who…

    Sofia Coppola's Lost In Translation is a movie that's been on my watchlist since I first created it, so this viewing had been built up for many years. And I really wanted to completely adore this tale about two lonely people meeting in the world's most crowded city and in parts, I absolutely loved it - but sadly, it never fully managed to grip me like I would have hoped it was capable of. The setting of Tokyo is both…

    This is one of my all time favourite films, no question, and this rewatch yet again confirmed that. I love the two lead performances, I think they are beautiful and understated and so very real, as is Sofia Coppola's direction. This film resonates with me so closely and the feelings of isolation, loneliness and being lost are presented in such a thoughtful and realistic yet stylised and aesthetically pleasing way.
