Lost in Translation

I don't really want to regurgitate what's been said about this movie, because it's all true. Particularly the fact that Sophia Coppola is a master of tone; now if she could only come up with a decent story.

So, with that dispensed with, let me say this:

Did anyone else notice how much this movie looked and felt like Bladerunner, or is it just me? I half expected to see Deckard bashing through the background of one of the scenes, taking out a replicant. Could it be that Ridley Scott really set it in modern day Tokyo and not future L.A.?
