Lost in Translation

Lost in Translation ★★★½

i was captured by the way coppola portrays loneliness through bob and charlotte's gentle and genuine connection. the soundtrack and the images were very soothing and it felt like i was transported into their melancholic state from being in a foreign country. 

however, i felt deeply uncomfortable by the way this culture shock was depicted - as if anyone who doesn't speak english in their own country is ignorant. this discomfort is the main reason why i can't give it four stars. meh.
