Not Completely Lost in Translation

"Are you crying?" the Muse asked me.

"No." Sniff.

"Yes, you are," she said.

"Am not." Snuffle.

She leaned over on the sofa and gave me a tight hug. "It's nice to know you've got some fuzziness in there someplace, bonehead."

On the TV screen in front of us, Bill Murray continued to karaoke along to More Than This, half drunk, in the middle of an epiphany, and singing for me.

Yer not alone-- I usually get sniffly over a movie like Taxi Driver-- that's what a sick individual I am-- but Lost in Translation destroys me.

In reference to the comments below:
I don't want to know what he says, either. My opinion on what it might be changes each time I see it.

Yeah, well, Taxi Driver because Travis is so lonely and directionless for most of the movie-- I kind of know how he feels. Esp. that part when he's watching American Bandstand-- the kids are dancing to 'Late For the Sky', and Scorsese does a great pan over his face..... aw, I don't know-- it's an odd example, I know, but it's true-- it does choke me up.

No, no, I can totally see where you're coming from. It's just my inability to stop from making a joke that gets me beaten up ;)

Head down, keep moving. Get through without getting anything in your eyes, and all is well.

This is one of my current favorite movies... it always gets me choked up, and dammit, that Scarlett Johannson is really, really yummy.

She's a very very cute girl.

Choked up? Try BAWLING. I was crying Niagra Falls at the end of it.

So Paul...what do you think he says?

Know what? I don't want to know what he says. It's got a great '70s film-feel to it, which is how I described it to my friends who hadn't seen it at that point. It doesn't matter what he says. It matters about the feeling of what he says, which isn't something I think that anyone outside of the film's characters can truly know.

However: if I had to venture my own opinion anyway, I'd say it was something along the lines of, "You are the angel of my world. Thank you for saving me."

Something like that, anyway. Only more poetic.

I own it. I just never finished watching it. And I can't even remember why now, which is awful, I know.

Most likely because I was watching it with D and he fell asleep, as so often happens when the movie is not a $200 million action-packed blockbuster. Bleh.

Hey, the world needs $200 million blockbusters too, but the smaller movies are the ones that tend to stick with me the longest. The Lost in Translations, or the Igby Goes Downses, or the Sidewayses or Garden Stateses... gimme those any day. I'm a film whore!

*sob*
