I like how subtlely it was put in there. I guess "subtle" is a good way to describe LIT.

That was surprisingly fun, thanks all for chatting, amazing events are happening 2 years later, I read the email and was like "I gotta be there". Would probably be better with a more light-hearted film. Groundhog day would be fun to do, I think that was suggested before.

I've seen LiT 10-15 times mostly around 11 Pm, alone, in a dark room. Those are in my opinion the best conditions. After I watched it like that, for a few days or even weeks after that, I have felt that 'punched in the stomach' feeling that so many others have expierienced. Yes, LIT is best to watc...

I saw the sneak preview of The Island several weeks ago. In my mind it was very cliche and Hollywood despite starting with an interesting idea.

I'm dissapointed Scarlett seems to be going a very Hollywood route, but can't blame her, and just hope she makes some good films along her career.

The whole film felt very transient and dreamlike for me.

When Charlotte and Bob flip through La Dolce Vita, I think that film is a perfect allusion for this one.

If you haven't seen La Dolce Vita, it's a must see. It deals with many of the same themes as LIT.

Just out of curiousity why in God's name haven't you seen the whole movie? I mean, it's understandable but not from someone who spends so much time on the LIT boards. Did you miss the first part of the film or the latter? If it was the first then you probably didn't miss nearly as much as if you had...

yeah she's plays a younger character much like she did in ghost world. in LIT she seemed like such an incredibly jaded "old-soul" adult. however, nothing can be worse than her appereance in The Island. not a bad performance, but a flat and uninteresting character - much like the rest of this lastest...

When Bob and Charlotte first talk at the bar, Charlotte says: "So what are you doing here?" She emphasises 'you' which implies that she's acknowledged that she knows who he is, or at least that's how I interpret it. However, later on in Bob's hotel room (just before my favourite bed scene), Charlot...

For all we know, Bob could be whispering to Charlotte "keep in touch" or "it gets easier" or "I love you" or any number of things. The film keeps the whisper ambiguous because what the viewer can imagine is said is more powerful than any dialogue Sofia could have written in its place. And I would di...

Yeah, when I saw Scarlett in LIT and Ghost World I knew she could be something great.

I just hope she doesn't sell-out and only make films like MI:3 and The Island.

I mean, I just don't see her doing as well in those kinds of roles.

I agree, as he gets back into the cab you get a sense of solace and conclusion.

If the film ended without Bob and Charlotte's last embace, I would feel dissapointed.

I don't think any of us are criticizing the way the film was shot.

In fact, I dare say it'd be near impossible to do a better job in a 27 days.

We're just pointing out little discontinuities one tends to notice after viewing an excessive number of times.

Literature and film doesn't neccesarily have a "point", that is a moral "lesson" like in fairy tales. I think it's important to ask questions about films, but perhaps the a better question than "what was said?" would be why did Sofia Coppola decide to leave the whisper ambiguous? I believe the inaud...
