Re: Just Watched LIT Again!

The band Keep Shelly in Athens did a cover in 2011/12, maybe that's it?

I can't wait for this... the other two are my favourite films beside LiT. Which is your favorite? I like before sunset more. (Probably down to even that final line.) Have you seen the newest since this post and does it hold up to the others? I'm not sure... though I'd probably say Sunset if I had t...

I'm pretty sure that's the booklet from the Japanese DVD. Mine looks the same.

I also like to watch it very late at night. In fact I don't think I've ever watched it in the day. I also watched it the day before going to Japan (both times) and the day after I returned... it's a weird thing, I felt like I needed to be absorbed in it, before I went, to prepare and after I returne...

I'd definitely go over to Odaiba. Shinjuku might still have lights up. Tokyo Tower will also probably be lit up for New Years. Also, try and visit the Meiji Shrine in Harajuku on New Year's Eve, it's one of the big things to do to ring in the new year. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meiji_Shrine It wi...

Japan blog...

I'm not sure if anyone is interested but I've recently started a blog about Japan. I'm posting random things of interest/news and my photos from my trips a few years ago. Either way, I hope someone might stop by and give me a comment!

Sofia Coppola Blu-ray boxset...

A boxset of all four Sofia films on Blu-ray. I think I'll be getting this. Out in October according to Amazon France.

LiT screening in Brighton...

I just found out about this, there is a Japan festival from 18th-26th June down in Brighton and on the 22nd they are showing an outdoor screening of LiT. Sadly I'm just a little bit too far away to make it :(

Tokyo Girl, how did you like the Blu-ray edition? I thought it was pretty good. Some shots still had the grain but I think that was probably what Sofia wanted for the film. The outdoor shots were nice and sharp. I definitely think the audio track was improved, it sounded a lot richer. You said you ...

Got myself a new TV about a month ago, then I decided to get a Blu-Ray player, and today I received LiT on Blu-Ray in the post. I'm going to watch it tonight, I can't wait :)

It has a sequel I hear, but Im not sure if I want to see it.. I just watched them both last night :) I've seem them quite a few times now but I don't get b...

Aah so you're a writer. A challenging thing to write, I think. Are you finding it stimulating/enjoyable? I love it when things just pop into the mind. Cultivating that area & keeping the channel clear seems to be the trick, something I'm still trying to understand. And you seem to have a hold on th...

I read that Murakami gave the green light on the movie and he'd been saying no to any adaptations for years apparently so he must have been somewhat happy with it! Wow, really? ("even in the smallest events there’s no such thing as coincidence") I think I know which one that is: 'She's got the moves...

Haha yeah, there certainly are some interesting characters that pop up in his work. We're only getting it at the local arthouse cinema (I just watched Somewhere there as well) but I'm not getting my hopes up, from all the reviews it seems that it's just a very basic retelling of the story, with hard...

Yes Norwegian Wood particularly, I could have just kept reading and reading. I was really disturbed at the Jonnie Walker parts, I guess that was the idea but it wasn't nice, I don't even think I'd like to read that part again! The movie for Norwegian Wood comes out at my local cinema in a few weeks,...

Haha yeah, I think I've read everything that's been translated so far. I really love his writing. I'd say Wind Up Bird Chronicle is probably my least favourite actually, but I have only read it once. It was just very long and I didn't really like the war/violent parts. I really enjoyed Kafka althoug...
