My friend Shelley and I

My friend Shelley and I went to see "Lost in Translation" last night. It was also the premiere of "Dirty Dancing 2: Havana Nights" at the same theater. Aside from the billion middle school children running around, they had live salsa dancing. Needless to say, it was a zoo.

The movie was very odd. That's not to say that I didn't like it, because I did. It's just not a movie for everyone. The acting was superb. If Murray wins an Oscar, it certainly wouldn't be undeserved (although I think Penn has it in the bag). Coppolla is a very artistic and surreal director, but I don't think she pushes herself too far. You can see aspects similarities in both "The Virgin Suicides" and "Lost in Translation." What I do like though is that the movie is not bound to dialogue--much of the movie has no dialogue or long dramatic pauses, but you can gather so much from the looks on the two actors' faces.
