This film contains such genuine and believable performances from Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson. The chemistry was great between the two. Lost in Translation is a very, very character driven film from Sofia Coppola. I'll remember her for this film from now on; instead of that garbage Bling Ring movie. And Dammit Bill Murray, I am so jealous you got to suck face with my woman; you sly bastard!
I will say that this is probably my favorite Bill Murray performance. As well as my favorite acting performance from Scarlett Johansson. I say the best acting performance for Scar-Jo because my favorite performance from her overall is her voice performance in the movie HER. Acting-wise this is definitely my favorite of hers.
I knocked off the half star because a few times I was taken out of the film and or bored. But that can definitely end up changing with a second viewing. I feel like this is going to be one of those movies that gets better after each viewing.
