Re: Your LiT Traditions.

The last time I watched it from start to finish (and not as background music) was during our first trip to Japan in 2016, on our last night in the Park Hyatt Tokyo, my wife and I ordered room service and watched it over our meal, in our room, against the backdrop of the brilliant and haunting Tokyo...

Re: Your LiT Traditions.

Similar to others' experiences, I also choose to watch Lost in Translation at night, by myself. Recently, I've decided to listen with big, plush, noise-cancelling headphones. It really adds to the experience, and makes me feel slightly more connected to Charlotte, who wears headphones of her own thr...

Re: Happy 15th Anniversary LIT!

Happy Fifteenth Anniversary, Lost in Translation!

I celebrated a little later than usual -- on Friday, September 21 with a taste of Suntory whisky for Bill Murray's birthday. (Felt appropriate!) :D

https://image.ibb.co/b67x8S/Durham.png To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Sofia Coppola's director's debut, Set Pictures: Behind the Scenes with Sofia Coppola was released exclusively in Japan on February 9. From what I could find online, it contains behind-the-scenes photographs taken on Sofia...

If you do that, I'll put on a blonde/pink wig and sing, "I'm special, soooo special" to you. We'll call it a date. :wink:
Please tell me this actually happened. ;)

The last time I watched Lost in Translation was at the Getty Center in Los Angeles. It played in the theater in conjunction with a photography exhibit focused on Tokyo. It was only my second time seeing it on a "big screen," so my anticipation was high. Not surprisingly, anticipation was met with ab...

I've never been able to find "Goodbye" in the film even with the volume cranked. I originally thought it played as Charlotte walked through Shibuya crossing, but it looks like I am wrong. Hmm. Time to watch Lost in Translation with a new mission ... ! Before I watch LiT, I usually let the menu play...

These are absolutely stunning posters ... this one, in particular, has always been one of my favourites.

The only complaint I have about these is that they aren't real! It's really difficult to resist the beauty of the simplicity in these posters. :)

Thank you for sharing these with us!

Westerns are great! A few that I really enjoy are The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance , The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly , and if you count the "first contact" features as westerns, other favourites are The Last of the Mohicans and definitely The New World . There was a good miniseries on the AMC channe...

Personally, I can't wait for Iron Man 2. I only hope it doesn't disappoint the way that Superman Returns and Spider-Man 3 did. (Even though Thomas Haden Church was incredible ... but now I'm going off-topic!)

Unfortunately some friends want me to watch it with them but this is kind of impossible! If I watch it, I'm gonna watch it alone. What do you guys think? Hmm ... that's a tough one. Personally, I feel that Lost in Translation is a very subtle, intimate experience best enjoyed alone. I remember that...

Lost in Translation - Charlotte Poster

Hi everyone! I want to apologize in advance if something like this isn't allowed, but I recently ran across a beautiful Lost in Translation poster online ... and I can't seem to find it anywhere! http://i49.tinypic.com/a1d0k.jpg Has anybody seen this poster for sale before?

'Wild Hogs'. Don't bother. Just don't. I love your reviews, Tombo. Short and sweet! I recently saw Avatar . I agree with most reviewers; it's an epic retelling of Walt Disney's Pocahontas , and it's all spectacle ... but still a pretty incredible experience. I was tremendously skeptical to see it i...

The 420 reference happens when Bob, early on in the film, cannot sleep and looks at his digital clock. It reads 4:20 AM. Then Lydia's annoying fax comes through ... :wink:
