    I finally checked it out earlier this year and it really is as good as all the praise and admiration says. Painfully beautiful and emotional but fun and evokes a lot of beauty in Japan, even if it takes place heavily inside a hotel.

    Lost in Translation is my favorite film of the 21st century thus far. It just got to me when I first saw it and hasn’t stopped.

    It definitely stuck with me for a good while, I still think on it every now and then. My girlfriend got me the blu-ray for my birthday, I need to rewatch it soon.

    Thank you @Creasy47! Much appreciated :)

    As for OP, in an attempt at being honest to myself I had to admit it is one of my very favourite films so there you go ;) Glad you liked its inclusion.

    @ToTheRight,
    …perhaps you can explain the plot of the Big Sleep to me.

    Oddly, even though the '45 pre-release version is more coherent, I prefer the regular more confusing edit. LOL

    IIRC, given their new relationship the revised edit was done to play up the "Bogie and Bacall" angle.
    Great list BTW.

    Thanks! Yes. Charles K Feldman suggested to Warners they film more scenes of rapport between Bogie and Bacall. She was getting slaughtered for her performance in CONFIDENTIAL AGENT.
