Telly Under The Influence - Thank God For Duck Soup
LOST IN TRANSLATION
Two Americans in Tokyo. Both unhappily married. One man in his fifties. One woman of about twenty. His wife and family are back in the US. Her husband is based in the same hotel but continually leaves her to go on photographic assignments.
Neither of them can speak Japanese and the Japanese people they meet cannot speak good American.
They naturally come together and fall in love, although because of the fucking enormous age gap they realise there is no future in their union and they go back to their uncaring partners.
Can she only be happy in a relationship with a father figure?
Can he only be happy in a relationship with a daughter figure?
Can Sophia Coppola only be happy under her father's wing?
Can Francis only be happy knowing he is protecting his daughter from the Hollywood devils?
Do I give a shit about any of it?

The IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ME I'M GREAT WITH PEOPLE DON'T YOU REMEMBER THE HOPEFULS? Award goes to Terry Christian with this beautiful put down of multi-millionaire Chris Evans...
"If you've got anybody hailing fucking Chris Evans as a genius, you've got something very wrong with the world, right? He's a working-class kid from Warrington. No passion, no conviction, not interested in music, not interested in culture, not interested in the world of people...Hates people. He's like Morrissey, he's a complete fucking misanthrope."
And poor Kenny Everett, such a comic genius, he did all his own jingles, he was a broadcasting original, he died tragically young.
Remember Sid Snot, the high voiced Bee Gees, big-arsed Rod Stewart, the all in the best possible taste woman, Marcel whatever the bloody hell his name was (the shit mime artist)?
