Watch: What If ‘Lost in Translation’ and ‘Her’ Were Two Parts of the Same Movie?

Spike Jonze’s ‘Her’ and Sofia Coppola’s ‘Lost In Translation,’ despite their differences, often seem as if they are part of the same general mood in the minds of their directors: a little sad, a little bemused, a little amused. Each film views as less a story than a series of grace notes on the idea of loneliness; they puncture our minds less than they nudge them. And they conjure terrific, understated performances out of normally dominant stars like Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, and Joaquin Phoenix in the process.
