More Than This

Lost in Translation

I’m sure Anne was wondering why I brought a camera to my second viewing of Lost in Translation, but I was trying to capture something – a car.

I got the photo above, but I didn’t capture enough to figure out the make or model. In steps BigJohnSF with his recent entry about the film, along with a photo of the car (A Toyota Century) and a bit of information about it.

Glory be, the internet is handy. (Thanks John)

Anyways, back to the movie. Strip away the hype and it’s a fine piece of film.

Beautiful, I’d say.

Normal. Real. It captures the essence of a few relationships and a visit to a foreign country with a sensibility I don’t experience much in the theater.

Is it for everyone? A resounding no. But I’d own it on DVD and that’s about the highest praise I can give.
