Good movie, a little slow

on 5/29/2012

This is one of Bill Murray's better performances, but the movie itself is probably a little overrated. It has some very funny moments, but it slows down a little too much here and there. A great breakthrough performance by Scarlett Johannson and a good effort by Sofia coppola (atoning for her poor work as an actress). Read More

Editors Note
Note Sofia Coppola's second feature-length film focuses on two guests at a Tokyo hotel--Bob (Bill Murray), a middle-aged actor in town to film whiskey commercials, and Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson), the young wife of a trendy photographer (Giovanni Ribisi) who is always out on a shoot. When Bob isn't on the job taking fragmented direction from the Japanese crew, he's receiving faxes on home decorating from his emotionally distant wife. And while her husband is away, Charlotte spends most of her time trying to motivate herself to do more than look out the window at Tokyo's urban sprawl. So when the two meet in the hotel bar, they strike up an unusual friendship, one that provides a welcome escape from their boredom and loneliness.^With LOST IN TRANSLATION, Coppola cements her reputation as a thoughtful and inventive filmmaker. Every element of the movie is pitch-perfect, from the dreamy, atmospheric score to the expertly timed editing to the lingering shots of the characters and the city. Most importantly, Coppola's minimalist script allows Murray and Johansson to give astonishingly moving yet subtle performances as people who are lost in the limbo of a foreign country, but find each other for comfort and companionship. Both heartbreakingly sad and hilariously funny, Coppola's LOST IN TRANSLATION is that rare movie in which everything is in its right place.
Entertainment Weekly "...What's astonishing about Sofia Coppola's enthralling new movie is the precision, maturity and originality with which the confident young writer-director communicates so clearly in a cinematic language all her own..." 09/19/2003 p.65
New York Times "...One of the purest and simplest examples ever of a director falling in love with her star's gifts. And never has a director found a figure more deserving of her admiration than Bill Murray..." 09/12/2003 p.E1
USA Today "...The joys of Sofia Coppola's LOST IN TRANSLATION come from watching Murray modify his trademark passive-aggressive style into played-straight comic bewilderment....This is a career worth watching and a movie worth watching, too..." 09/12/2003 p.1E
Los Angeles Times "...The film itself -- tart and sweet, unmistakably funny and exceptionally well observed -- marks the arrival of 32-year-old writer-director Sofia Coppola as a mature talent with a distinctive sensibility and the means to express it..." 09/12/2003 p.C1
Chicago Sun-Times "...Sweet and sad at the same time it is sardonic and funny....Bill Murray has never been better..." 09/12/2003 p.31
Rolling Stone "...Altogether remarkable....LOST IN TRANSLATION is found gold..." 10/02/2003 p.124
Uncut "It's packed with incident....It's all in Murray's face....It's a magnificent performance that doesn't seem like acting at all..." 07/01/2004 p.139
