Lost in Translation at Last

I plan to finally see Lost In Translation this weekend. I have a feeling I will dislike it. I have a grudge against Sophia Coppola for “othering” women in Virgin Suicides, and I have a feeling I will see more “othering” in this movie, this time of Japan. But at least if she others them I can say she is an auteur showing signs of auteurial obsessions with the same themes. Even if I hate her themes. I go in with a grudge so I can’t say I’m keeping my mind open. But we will see. Expect a report Monday.
