Frankly, Mr. Shankly's rating of the film Lost in Translation

A truly masterpiece. Ikebana's scene is always astonishing and meaningful, no matter how many times I rewatch it. The incompleteness, the search for belonging, the unspoken, the hazy feel, the visual appeal, Tokyo, My Bloody Valentine. Everything is subtle, dreamy, magical. Charlotte's a wandering soul and there's a bit of her in each one of us still looking for our paths. This movie represents why I'm into movies.
