Sofia Coppola's sophomore film (following the gently assured The Virgin Suicides) is another exploration of delicate relationships and uncommunicated frustrations, this one in a beautifully composed atmosphere of isolation.
July 29, 2013
Depicts a very specific mental state too shaded and delicate for most movies to feel comfortable approaching it.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
December 25, 2010
Excellent but mature film about finding a connection.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
December 28, 2009
A relationship picture with elegant connective tissue; it's brittle and real, focused on the nuances of body language and unspoken desire, while indulging in a cheeky bit of knowing absurdity when the mood strikes.

June 13, 2009
...a deceptively simple study in unrequited attraction that succeeds in spite of minor problems with neglected sub-plots.
Full Review | Original Score: B+

Wonderfully warm and witty.
October 5, 2008
Lost in Translation revels in contradictions. It's a comedy about melancholy, a romance without consummation, a travelogue that rarely hits the road.
October 5, 2008
Very much a mood piece, the film's deft balance of humor and poignancy makes it both a pleasurable and melancholy experience.
October 5, 2008
Transcends its initial culture clash comic riffs to evolve into something altogether more moving by the end. As a result, it's a work of considerable power and pathos.

November 1, 2007
With this film it becomes clear that Sofia Coppola is a filmmaker with eyes all her own.
August 13, 2007
Working this time with her own story, Coppola lets it relax and breathe, devoting herself to moods and moments.

This is another step in Mr. Murray's career and one that hopefully gets him the recognition he deserves.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
June 21, 2007
The whole tale is told with a dreamy, jet-lagged feel, that part wonder, part nasueous feeling brought about by significant travel. Jet lag as a metaphor for love, a delicious combination. Simply a must-see film.

May 23, 2007
Alternately laugh-out-loud silly and profoundly moving, kudos to Sofia Coppola for managing to capture an undeniable chemistry between Murray and his 18 year-old co-star, despite a certain asexuality.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
January 24, 2007
Sofia Coppola's accomplished sophomore work is a personal, melancholy film, based on her own experience, and benefiting from strong chemistry between Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson.

Perfectly acted. Immeasurably funny. A great second outing for director Sofia Coppola.

June 24, 2006
So far as the central relationship goes, the film is almost European in its subtlety and nuance. Cinematic cherry blossom.
December 6, 2005
From the casting choices to the soul-soothing musical score to glimpses into Japanese visual culture, it's obvious that Sofia pays careful attention that each element of the film stands strong alone, but can also contribute to the whole.

December 6, 2005
Like so many things made in Japan, Sofia Coppola's new film is smaller and less costly than its standard American counterpart while at the same time superior in most important respects.
