getting lost, all the time

Over the weekend, been reading a lot of articles online. Lots of good reviews coming out all over about Sofia Coppola's Lost in Translation, which I'm looking forward to because I just loved The Virgin Suicides. Elvis Mitchell of the New York Times likens the film to the subdued romance to Brief Encounters, Before Sunrise, and In the Mood for Love. 2 of 3 movies is in my list of all time favorites.

There's talk that Bill Murray might get nominated for an Oscar for his nuanced portrait of Bob Harris. And Scarlett Johansson as the ingenue, whose tastes in clothes is almost like the director's, and whose husband in the film was also distant and far away. Hmmm... Anyhow, get quick peek at the reviews from NYTimes here, and also another from popmatters here.
