Lost In Translation (Dir. Sofia Coppola, 2003): Sofia Coppola's second feature-length film focuses on two guests at a Tokyo hotel--Bob (Bill Murray), a middle-aged actor in town to film whiskey commercials, and Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson), the young wife of a trendy photographer (Giovanni Ribisi) who is always out on a shoot. When Bob isn't on the job taking fragmented direction from the Japanese crew, he's receiving faxes on home decorating from his emotionally distant wife. And while her husband is away, Charlotte spends most of her time trying to motivate herself to do more than look out the window at Tokyo's urban sprawl. So when the two meet in the hotel bar, they strike up an unusual friendship, one that provides a welcome escape from their boredom and loneliness.

Nominated for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and winner of Best Original Screenplay at the 2004 Oscars.

Eternal Sunshine Of Spotless Mind (Dir. Michel Gondry, 2004): Joel (Carrey) and Clementine (Winslet) have always had a tumultuous relationship but Joel is shocked to find that Clementine has had all memories of their relationship erased. In order to forget the woman that he still loves, he decides to undergo the same highly experimental procedure. But as the painful memories are erased he begins to remember the passion and love they had for each other and so he tries to hide these memories in other parts of his brain...

One is a fine movie and the other is the most overrated movie EVER, even more than Titanic and I'm a Bill Murray fan.

No but for a fiver, I cant really not order them. Great price and well regarded films, so voted hot.

OMG, these films were both (IMO) truly awful. Wife fell asleep during LiT, wish I had and ESotSM was just dull.
Only saving grace was a good Kirsten Dunst nork shot!

people who dont get these films are emotionally shallow simpletons who need every emotion and atmosphere to be explained. both fantastic films in their own right - definately worth a fiver.

Lost in Translation is rubbish - but Eternal Sunshine is very good.

LiT bored me.

Eternal Sunshine on the other hand is one of the best movies made in recent years. A must watch.

Hot. I really connected with Lost in Translation, class film

1st Post, although I have been lurking on this fine site for quite some time now :thumbsup:

This is a great deal imo, 2 great movies for a fiver. What more can you want? However, those brought up on a diet of standard Hollywood fare may not find much to like in LiT, it's greatness lies in subtle touches. Gone are the car chases and the over blown romantic cliches that populate most films, in are the complexities of human nature and relationships that are blurred in definition - all set against the mystical backdrop of the Far East. Now I can understand how this can't be everyones cup of tea, but I found it fascinating and at the same time refreshingly different from the other stuff out there.

ESotSM however, is pure genius in my opnion. Apparently the director of the film (Gondry) worked with the guy that did 'Being John Malkovich', and the unique quirkiness of the two fuse perfectly and result in a incredibly well constructed multi-layered marvel of imagination and intelligence. I usually can't even stand Jim Carrey; but wow, he gives a performance of a life time here - in a role that you would never think him capable given his outlandish comedy roots. A movie that gets you to think, laugh and at the same time beautifully poignant - A must see.

Hope these mini reviews helped you guys out. ;-)

I love Lost In Translation more than I love most members of my own family.

That would be Charlie Kaufman. Utter genius, though some of his other films are so bizarre they make Eternal Sunshine and Being John Malkovich seem normal.

Agreed, I was never a Carrey fan, this was the first film that made me realise he could really act if he bothered trying.

Both are stunning films..

LiT is about a subtle romantic friendship. It's funny, cute and hugely enjoyable. And BIll Murray and Scarlett Johannson are at their best here.

But ESoTSM is utter brillance. Some of the best constructed storytelling I've seen in a film in years - wonderfully unique, fantastic visuals and stunning performances from Carrey, Winslet and Wilkinson.

Ashamed to say I haven't seen ESoTSM, but I will be putting it on my must see list now.

Absolutely loved LiT though, a film in which the subtle acting is brilliant and is the prominence of the film, and dialogue takes a back seat. I think middle-aged men (of course Im far to young for that category! ;-) ) everywhere can connect with Bill Murray's performance and often found myself smiling throughout the film.

One of my friends however hated it and couldn't understand why I liked it....but I just like to think Im cleverer than him. :thumbsup:

Those aren't simple action movies though. They contain some pretty biting satire.

That is so judgmental and maybe even rude. It also happens to be quite true.
