Wasn't Bill nominated for supporting actor in Rushmore?

Just curious why people think Lost in Translation was so good. While I felt it was reasonably entertaining, it certainly wasn't in my "top films of the year" list.

Sorry, the title was actually Bus 174. I can never remember the number part of the title. It was just very gripping. It told the story of the tragic bus hijacking using the multiple sourcesof news footage. It was like that film "Phone Booth" but not phony and actually genuinely suspenseful. The ending still gives me the chills.

I wrote a capsule review here among my Vancouver International Film Festival reports:

I thought it was just a very tender, beautifully filmed movie that explored the depth of feeling between the two characters in a very gentle way. It was just very lovely. Even though some people have said that 'nothing happens', it is a very mature movie in that it spends the time to develop it. The final scene between Murray and Johannsen when he whispers in her ear means something different to everyone.

Wayne: first of all because it just doesn't go as you've seen
relations go a thousand times before. That always peeks my
interesting a lot (also with non standard endings for example,
like Meet Joe Black: soooo powerful).

Second I thought the acting was top-notch. It didn't feel acted.
Just liked you where there on the ride. Overal I liked the story
as well, but I'm still making up my mind about how much. I
will definitely have to see it again a couple of times.

Are you saying you actually liked Mett Joe Black or being sarcastic?

I actually love MJB (no kidding). I know that a lof of people really
dislike the movie. I also know of people who also love it. It seems
to be one of those you either love it or hate it movies.

(in this case I was merely describing the fact that it has a non-
standard ending)
