Re: Play It Again Sam...er um...I mean Charlotte!!!

I think maybe it's been a couple of years now since I've watched this film. It's a reminder of a different time in my life when I travelled to new places, often by myself for the adventure. I'm sure when I watch it again it'll bring memories back. I never got to watch this in the cinema - I was at t...

Re: A Guide To the Best Lost in Translation Spots in Tokyo

Thank you for posting this. Although the sushi place and Air nightclub has closed, it's quite surprising how little has changed in 15 years. Perhaps it's a result of the economic stagnation the economy is known for? I'm sure being in the film has been quite profitable for the Park Hyatt, and I would...

Re: So weird...

I think the song with Japanese lyrics is 'kaze wo atsumate' by happy end. Is goodbye by Kevin Shields?

Welcome! We're still here, but I like to think the forum has moved from being a bustling conversation place to a quiet library of accumulated thoughts from the 11+ years it has been open. Pour yourself a whiskey (Suntory of course), you'll always be welcome.

Thanks I'll have to check it out.

I really enjoyed Her this year, it also seemed like a spiritual successor to LIT.

Wow, how did I miss these? Great photos, they're so evocative! It seems like things haven't changed at all since the movie was made over ten years ago now.

I'm really surprised at the cost of flights also nowadays.

I'll have to watch it again, has whoever mixed the soundtrack literally looped the same call twice?

I believe they're rooks (I tend to mix them up with ravens), their call is very common around Kyoto and Tokyo.

I've always watched this film alone. I used to watch it late at night whilst drinking bourbon (this is nearly ten years ago or so). I suppose it would add to the jetlagged feeling. Nowadays I prefer to play it before the sun has fully risen. Usually by the time it finishes the skies are clear but th...
