I unintentionally had an Asian theme going on the past couple of letters!  I enjoyed it, but I think “L” will be the last Asian-based movie, at least for a little while.

I have to say, this movie bored me to tears.  It didn’t have a lot of dialogue and it had absolutely zero momentum.  It was kinda like watching someone’s vacation slideshow from their summer trip to Japan.  The architecture of Tokyo was grand, and Scarlett rocked a pink wig at one point, but those were about the only things I enjoyed.  I literally felt “lost in translation.”  I didn’t get what the director and everyone who praises this movie was seeing.
