The Charts

Land Of The 'Lost'

It's still playing in movie theaters, but that didn't stop Lost in Translation from raking in the DVD dough. Hot on the heels of its Golden Globe wins and four Oscar nominations, writer-director Sofia Coppola's dramedy -- starring Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson (pictured) -- was this week's best-selling disc. To top it off, the film is still scoring at the box office. May we suggest a celebratory Suntory toast?

NOW IN STORES

CARNAGE (Unrated, 130 mins., subtitled, 2002, Wellspring) This international award winner from French filmmaker Delphine Gleize weaves together several stories, all interconnected by one (morbid) thing: the remains of a bull.

DEATH IN VENICE (PG, 130 mins., subtitled, 1971, Warner) Luchino Visconti's adaptation of Thomas Mann's novel finds a composer on a seaside vacation. Add a fatality and a little unrequited obsession and, well, let's just say it's not exactly a day at the beach.

IT WAS A WONDERFUL LIFE (Unrated, 82 mins., 1994, Docurama) Not the sequel to the Jimmy Stewart movie, but rather a ''riches-to-rags'' documentary about six homeless women struggling to survive. Jodie Foster narrates.

STAR TREK VOYAGER: SEASON ONE (Unrated, 12 hrs., 13 mins., 1995, Paramount) The fourth installment of the cult franchise sees Voyager thrown 70,000 light-years to another end of the galaxy. Since they're lost, it's fortunate that Captain Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) is in command. She'll ask for directions.
