#1132 A story told with pictures – Lost in Translation

My Dad (who has written three feature films) always tells me, “A film is a story told with pictures.” I love that line. To illustrate his point, check out the following story told with pictures from my favourite movie Lost in Translation. There are only two short lines of dialogue spoken in the whole minute long scene.

Bob: I don’t wanna leave.

Charlotte: So don’t. Stay here with me.

Kills me every time. I got the idea from my main man James K Lowe who did this with The Wackness (another one of my favourite films) a couple of days ago. Katherine‘s going to do one too.

    LOVE The Wackness – and Lost In Translation too, although my favorite Sophia Coppola film is without a doubt The Virgin Suicides. What did you think of that one Isaac?

    To be honest, I really didn’t like it. I think it must be the sort of film that appeals to girls – it’s so teenage angsty in a way that only they can relate to.

    When I was a teenager, I didn’t even know what angst was!

    You should read the book of Virgin Suicides Isaac! It’s actually more male teen angsty than female (its written in the form of a greek chorus of several of the teenage boys, like the film was narrated) and is less dreamy and more earthy than the film.
