Lost in Translation 
An Immense Dissapointment
0.5/4 stars

I originally purchased this film because it was toted as an Oscar hit and I had known Sophia Coppola had received and Oscar for the direction. The film was shot beautifully and is saturated with amazing craft. Yet the film it self goes absolutely no where. There is no plot, there is no real change in the characters, there is no real purpose or driving force to the film. It just seems to go absolutely no where. The thing that angers me about this film is the way that Sophia was presented with the Oscar. They didn't talk about her ability as a director instead they talked about the lineage of family directors and the fact that it is a shame that a female director hadn't received an oscar before. She won it no for her ability but for her gender and her last name. I wish they reserved the first oscar for a female director to a woman that could actually direct.
