Happy 20th Anniversary LIT!!

Hey everyone! Here we are once again! There’s been some other fun things going on I will get to further down. But first, when was LIT actually released?! Was it in September or October? Last time (at 15), I said it was Sept. 9, 2003 in the US but that is only partially correct. LIT was first shown a...

Re: New LIT book: Lost in Translation (BFI Film Classics)

Suzanne Ferriss appeared on a podcast this past March to discuss her LIT book. You can hear it here: https://newbooksnetwork.com/lost-in-translation or if you want to hear it on a podcast player and download it you can try this one. It was a little hard for me to pin down. https://player.fm/series/n...

Re: New LIT book: Lost in Translation (BFI Film Classics)

I read and finished the book while traveling on airplanes recently! Which is ironic because in the book she devotes some time to talking about the theme of travel in LIT along with how the experience of travel relates to the experience of the movie and how it was filmed. It's a great book! Discusses...

Shawn Mendes music video tribute to LIT!!! Lost In Japan

I found out about this from a footnote in the new LIT book by Suzanne Ferriss! I searched the site and as far as I can see no one else has posted this. In the book she talks about the popularity of the film with a new generation of young people seeing it for the first time. Back in 2018, apparently,...

Re: New EP inspired by the movie LiT

Hey, so Pitman, I went on Bandcamp not long ago and finally bought it! I'd been meaning to (time flies when you're procrastinating :shock: )! I had gotten back on there as I got some songs from another band I am following and I went back and checked out your albums. I like the new one, Nami. I'll pr...

Re: What was the last movie you saw?

Saw that new Puss in Boots too and really enjoyed it!
Also saw the new Avatar (just a few posts back people talking about the original Avatar wow time flies!) in Imax 3D and enjoyed it also.
And last weekend Guardians of the Galaxy III!

Yeah for now. I think as there are more ways to watch and more people see it we can get more discussion.
I finally finished watching it and will post my impressions soon!
