It's a wonderful film, all subtlety and grace, from the delicate script of writer-director Sofia Coppola to the finely tuned efforts of Bill Murray, who gives a still, laconic yet mesmerizing performance.
The joys of Sofia Coppola's Lost in Translation come from watching Murray modify his trademark passive- aggressive style into played-straight comic bewilderment -- and to marvel at his slim new picture- of-health appearance.
It's certainly edgier, smarter, than much of what passes for culture-clash comedy these days, even if the phlegmatic Murray sometimes resembles every Ugly American abroad, mocking waiters and sushi chefs who struggle to get his deadpan humor.
