Lost in Translation, Sofia Coppola’s barn burner about two Americans who are bored in Tokyo and maybe kind of sort of or maybe not fall in love or at least wonder what could’ve been even though he’s old enough to be her father, ends with Bill Murray whispering something into Sugartits Johanssen’s ear.

BRILLIANT!  Seeing stuff that almost happens but doesn’t is exactly why I watch movies!  It’s like in Citizen Kane where Rosebud was almost a sled! Or in The Godfather where an Italian guy almost joined the mafia!  Sofia Coppola is a genius!
