Lost in Translation

Lost in Translation ★★★★★

I finally caught this, after years and years of putting off watching it. It did not disappoint in the slightest, minus a few pacing issues. I relate to this film more than I'd like to admit, at almost 21-years old. Sofia Coppola explores herself and every flashing yellow heart in the world through these characters. It pains me to reflect about how they're stranded in a place where every word gets lost in its trajectory or falls upon deaf ears, but in reality, they might as well be in any corner of the world - it would feel exactly the same. Even back home.

And it pains me, because it's so true in so many levels. For me, and maybe even for you.

This was a four and an half star review when I started writing it.
