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

Well, crikey I've logged this film on Letterboxd (great film website by the way) only 7 times but got to be getting closer to thirty or forty watches in reality. Hope all lit fans are doing well in Virus quarantine. Watched it with a close friend and she really enjoyed it. Roll on 20th anniversary ...

Vanity Fair has a video series where actors break down their careers and talk about production and inspiration of certain films ... Apparently, exactly one month ago, a video featuring our Scarlett was published! Lost in Translation , of course, being briefly discussed. :smile: * Scarlett Johansson ...

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: the Introduce Yourself thread

Over time, as I started to travel more and developed acute wanderlust, I really wanted to "get lost" in the same way the characters in the movie did. Beautifully said! I recently came across your post about visiting the Park Hyatt Tokyo. How wonderful it must have been to satisfy that wanderlust, a...

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...

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

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:

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.

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!
