    Rather lovely. Gently amusing. Bill Murray is very good as is Scarlet Johansson (sic).

    Nothing much actually happens, but that's ok.
    There's no need for something to happen to enjoy this kind of film because what really is important it's what happens in the inside of the characters.
    Plus Bill Murray, to me, is able to make everything more interesting, even when everything is barely nothing.

    This film was bittersweet emotionally for me, considering many of the high and low points resonated with my own personal struggles of late. I think it truly did capture the essence of loneliness and overwhelming feeling of being a small fish in a very large pond.

    This whole film was shot beautifully, and the majority of scenic views we got of the Tokyo skyline did make you appreciate the scope and breadth such a large city can grab someone with.…

    A beauty. The great chemestry between Johansson and Murray really made the film such a joy to watch.

    I've now seen this film about seven times. Last night was the first time on the big screen, and it hasn't lost any of its emotional resonance. In fact, I found myself picking up on details I hadn't noticed in previous viewings.

    We've all found ourselves in environments where no one understands us except for one person. We also know the feeling of having to savour a moment because it will only come around once. Because of this film, I…

    Lost in Translation acts as both an impressive acting showcase for Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson, and as a delightful mix of drama and comedy from writer/director Sofia Coppola.

    On the surface this film could be seen as a very cliche story of a man and a woman who are unhappy with their lives until they find eachother connect and (even if it's just for a while) have their lives changed for the better...

    Well...that IS what this film is but I feel it is much more sophisticated and interesting compared to most other movies of this sort of narrative.

    The two characters are both very easily likable (with…

    One of the 'understated' films I remember seeing. I describe this movie as beautiful: the visuals, the cinematography, the interactions of the characters, all simply beautiful.

    ***The first film of the July month-long challenge***

    This is the only Sofia Coppola movie I've watched so I'm not entirely sure how she gets so much shit for her movies. I've been told that it's primarily The Virgin Suicides that creates this negative image. Lost in Translation deserves all the Academy Award nominations it received that year, as well as the Best Original Screenplay win. The dynamic between the Bill Murray and ScarJo is unlike that of traditional romance…

    So many ways this could have gone wrong, whether it be with the scrip, direction, or Murray's character. Sofia Coppola is the only person who could have made this film, and for that, I thank her.

    Also, for the love of god please don't try telling us what was said at the end. Come on.

    Music for your reading pleasure

    "I don’t want to leave."

    Ten months. It’s been nearly ten months since I wrote about Lost in Translation for the very first time. You remember it, don’t you? It was the time where I wrote about me gazing up at the stars while lying down on top of my parent’s motor home and how I was thinking about how aimless and lost I seemed to be in life. Remember that joyous and heartwarming read?…
