Lost In Translation (2003)

 Rated R for a few occasions of toilet talk.

Lost In Translation

Trek to Japan to shoot booze ads and find your unrequited love interest in the 31st edition of the Next 100 Project. Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson are a wonderfully matched duo in Sofia Coppola’s masterwork. Dry comedy, fish out of waterness and what about that whisper at the end? Take it all in after you cozy up to Sparkplug Coffee!

For The Record: It’s Nancy Steiner, not Streiner. Also, Notorious was released 70 years ago, not 60. Also also, Mystic River was of course a 2003 Oscar front-runner just as much as Lost In Translation was.
