sweet!!

Thanks for the info. $200 / night still a bit steep but it may be worth it just to be there and experience it at least once.

I think it was just to add a diffused feeling relating to the atmosphere in the bar.

If memory serves, its even described in the script that the music was playing and the atmosphere was "sparkling" as they looked at each other. I suppose this was the interpretation when it was put on film :)

Wow... seems we're all of one mind lol.. Squarepusher definitely hit the mark with "Tommib". And the Jesus and Mary Chain song at the end gives me that "feeling" as well. Hell, the whole Soundtrack, even "Too Young" gives me that "feeling" cuz I'm there, seeing them dance around and smoking weed in ...

I'm back in Tokyo on business. As I write this I'm listening to the Lost in Translation soundtrack and looking out the window of a high-rise luxury hotel at the blinking red lights atop every skyscrapper. The hotel is next to Zojoji Temple where the monks ring a large temple bell six times each day...

Bob was prolly thinkin the same thing any man in his situation would've been.. Should I stay or not?

Good points. Im of the mindset that I like not knowing what was said. That just added more poignancy to the moment and just made the parting that much more bittersweet... especially the look back that Charlotte gives Bob as she's walking away and Bob doesnt even see it. Makes me think that if Bob lo...

I only wish I was as eloquent Pitman. You hit the hammer on the head regarding this movie as "life altering".

Welcome and I hope you find some solace in the community that shares those strong emotions as you do. :D
