Lost Footage

We may be more than a year alway from Episode III but already leaked footage is beginning to appear. Although whats turned up so far doesn’t really show anything that special (behind the scenes stuff mostly) if you’re into that sort of thing its worth a look.

Saw the film ‘Lost in Translation‘ over the weekend – It was pretty good to see Japan from a touristy sort of perspective but the plot was lacking a bit. It works in a very clever way with the minimalism of the film representing the emptiness that the characters feel in such a foreign city as Tokyo and the culture shock is shown by the juxtaposition of this with the busy metropolis that is Japanese culture. Definitely worth seeing but not Sofia Coppola’s best work in my opinion.
