Untranslateable. [Mar. 29th, 2005|11:17 pm]
We watched Lost In Translation tonight, and it was a really good movie. It's one of those movies that makes me want to have some good critical essays to read about it, y'know? So if anybody wants to tell me about the interesting symbolism of communication in the movie, or how it captures the spirit of aware (recognition of ephemeral beauty), please, feel free.

Work has been a myriad of small tasks lately, which is kind of nice, because it makes you feel so productive to get fifteen things done, even when they're all minor.

That is one of my favorite movies. I though Sophia Coppola did everything correctly. I love that at the end, the departure scene the audience wasn't privvy to hearing what they said to each other. If they had been and there had been some diatribe about what they mean to each other it would have been just incorrect and wrong.

When Sohpia was awarded an Oscar for Best Screenplay for the film I found myself tearing up with joy over it.

Watch it again... It's worth it.
