It was always however a little unclear on the time of the last shot was it at the end or somewhere in the middle of the timeline?

    Might have missed something because that is all I recall since it has been a while since I last saw it...damm now I wanna see it again...
    Ah it's wether Max topped himself into the dust cart or not. 4 hours or so of movie and you don't get the end. I love the score and that Noodles loves Max as a brother... (unusal I don't normally like violent movies). Persumably it bombed when it was first releast, it is beautifully crafted.

    Yes! You should.
    Very good movie.
    It doesn't have much of a plot, the two protagonists are trying to "find" themselves, and the movie finishes with an open ending.
    Three criteria for any INFP to love!
    I enjoyed this movie even though I have a thing about older men and younger women together (cringe). Especially if there's a significant age gap. Maybe it's the appearance of a power imbalance? Don't know.
    Good movie still.

    I'm all about the dialogue, atmosphere, and character development

    Although, in college, I got the director's cut (or some other cut) of Lost In Translation to play at editing with, and I liked it a lot better, but then it was the first version I saw. When I actually saw the official cut I was a bit disappointed.

    What was the original like?

    I probably don't have 15, but I'll give this a shot:

    --Star Wars (the obvious winner... I was 6 in 1977, and it was the first movie I saw in a theater - others not necessarily in order)
    --Shawshank Redemption
    --American History X
    --Schindler's List
    --Forrest Gump
    --Cast Away
    --National Treasure (may not fit with the others, but I just love this movie)
    --Star Trek II/IV/XI
    --Titanic (not that it was necessarily a favorite, but it did stick with me and turned me on to reading about the history of the time)
    --The Phantom Menace (the script was cringeworthy, but I was quite excited to see it, and it paid off in terms of "feel like a kid again" tone if not quality)
    --Rashomon
    --Full Metal Jacket
    --Stand By Me
    --Blade Runner

    I guess that's 14... but to make it 15 I'll give a dishonorable mention to:
    --Death Wish 3 (I think it was 3) - this one needs explanation. It was *awful*. I wound up seeing it at my Dad's house with him and my step-mom when I was home from college for the holidays - they'd rented it because they thought it was a fun action movie. It wasn't. We turned it off in the middle of a brutal scene of numerous men assaulting a woman. Watching that, even if for only a few minutes - with your parents - well, it *did* stick with me. I wish it hadn't.

    It was more focused on the girl than Bill Murray. The theme of the story and character development was explored more thoroughly, and it was a bit less kitschy in parts, as far as the "Japan can seem bizarre to foreigners" angle. Same story, just a slightly better telling & perspective.

    I loved this movie...was it just me or did it seem to sort of disappear right after it came out? I don't remember it getting a lot of acclaim.

    I ended up seeing it on video. I have no idea how long it lasted in theatres. It's a shame if it didn't do well, because it's an extremely well made film. Perhaps it didn't appeal to a big crowd because of the moral ambiguity toward big tobacco?

    Mhm, I saw it on cable. I don't think it got a lot of play at theaters, at least in my area.

    That could certainly be it
