Lost in Translation

I was told by a good friend of mine Paul M that I should watch this movie as soon as I got over here and that is what I duly did.

Lost in translation has been critically acclaimed by numerous people so I shall not add to that. Suffice to say it is a great film. However I could only sympathize with Bill Murray's sleepness nights in a hotel in a foreign land all the more with my recent relocation! Sadly though I have yet to find my Scarlett Johansson.

Overall 9/10 - proof that simple plots are the best and that narrative cinema is here to stay

All I can say is, if Sofia Coppola can't be arsed to think of an ending for her film, she shouldn't bother making one. All that whispering cr@p! OK if she know's what they said and it's up to the viewer to work out, but she's admitted she doesn't, therefore she has just kopped out!
