Low fi Bill Murray triumphs,
This review is from: Lost in Translation [DVD]  (DVD)
Who would have thought it ? Scarlett and Bill together. His manic quick fire humour and her understated beauty ? Well, it works convincingly. Partially unscripted many of the scenes are simply improvised allowing Bill Murray to excel with his wisecracking observations and allowing Scarlett to just...simmer.
Written and directed by Sophia Coppolla, some have speculated that this is the story of her alledged affair with Harrisonm Ford in the 90's. Either way, one of this films real triumphs is its realistic portrayal of Japan through the eyes of a new vistor. The charm and strangeness of the country is captured quite brilliantly.
A must see.

Oh dear you are on a mission aren´t you ? But I shall indulge you as your information is completely wrong. Scarlett´s want-away photographer husband (Giovanni Ribisi) in the film is based on Spike Jonze although she has always denied it and by the way you´d have to be something more than a fool to upset me with mis-information or derogatory adjectives. Look up Harrison Ford (I´m hoping you know who he is or maybe he´s a little too mainstream for you) you´ll find he was in Japan making suntory whisky comercials in the mid 90´s and it was also backed up by comments made by her estranged brother Gian Carlo. Personally I love a bit of banter on these sites but you need to get your facts sorted out, stop wimpering and stop taking it all so personally then we can have an adult conversation, ok?

I disagree with your anti-Blood On The Tracks policy, but am very much in favour of your pro-Lost In Translation policy. Strangely, I`ve always felt that a hip Dylan song was missing from this soundtrack; unlike Wonder Boys, which has Bob in abundance; it could have worked a treat with Bill and Scarlett and I already love this soundtrack (my only complaint being the prudish exclusion of Peaches` cheeky little number).

Hey Mr. Brayshaw, I can see the shape you're in
Finger on your eyebrow
And left hand on your hip
Thinking that you're such a lady killer
Think you're so slick!
Brother Johnny, he caught a plane and he got on it
Now he's a razor in the wind
And he got a pistol in his pocket
They say the man is crazy on the West Coast
Lord there ain't no doubt about it!
Sister Sue tell me baby what are we gonna do
She said take two candles,
And then you burn them out
Make a paper boat,light it and.... send it out
send it out now..
Hey Rosita! Donde vas con mi carro Rosita?
tu sabes que te quiero
pero ti me quitas todo
ya te robasta mi television y mi radio
y ahora quiere llevarse mi carro
no me haga asi, rosita
ehi, estese aqui al lado rosita
Hey Johny! Yeah, tenth street Johny
We've been looking for you man
Everybody told me you had moved uptown
Hey! you wanna go for a ride
I'm going uptown myself
Yeah, ain't it right?
Yeah, one time for Tito Puente, one time
Are you ready?
Yeah, of course we cannot leave out, Mr Ray Baretto
Are you ready?Are you ready?Are you ready?
