In this week’s episode, the guys talk Sofia Coppola’s 2003 film Lost in Translation, starring Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson. The film follows two Americans disenchanted and alone in Tokyo who find peace and even love within each other, though they are an unlikely pair. The episode becomes a discussion of love and intimacy and what makes the relationship between Bob (Murray) and Charlotte (Johansson) so beautiful and believable. Coppola’s film thrives in the realm of the real through actually quite dreamlike tones and cinematography, highlighting the way a once-in-a-lifetime relationship like Bob’s and Charlotte’s can float by surreally. They also talk about where in the world they’d like to get “lost” and their go-to karaoke songs.
