I always thought it was obvious what was given to Bob from the people at Suntory. No less than a complimentary bottle of Suntory whisky.

Very nice indeed. I loved reading this Chapter analysis. Brought me right back into the movie. What else is there to add? At this point, I have nothing. Thanks!!

I know eh? You would think a movie of this caliber demands the best quality DVD. It should have been released in Blu-Ray long ago! That's my opinion. After all, it was nominated for 4 Academy awards including best picture, best actor, best director and it won best original screenplay! Come on Blu-Ra...

T-Dot...what a fabulous story. This is life. These experiences happen, and at the most unpredictable times. What a wonderful episode. A truly LiT experience to say the least!

Welcome

Welcome T-Dot! Fellow Toronto resident here. So is Burgandy. Nice introduction. I would love to hear about your LiT experience. This is the place to post it for sure. It still is my favourite movie of all time. I doubt very much that any other film will take over the number 1 spot. It's funny when o...

Ash27, that's a cool experience. I've had similar experiences too. However, I have yet to tavel to the Orient. It is most definitely one of my lfe goals, in particular to Tokyo of course. I want to visit the Park Hyatt at least if I'm not rich enough to stay there, and go to the New York Grill - am ...

It's June 21rst, mid-summer, longest day of the year...and what better way to celebrate than a late-night viewing of LiT. It's around 1:40 AM right now. I'm sitting at the computer writing this and the DVD is loaded in the living room, listening to Girls in the background from the menu page. Ok..her...

For me, the Thai movie Last Life in the Universe is a must see film. There's also a disconnected loneliness in both main characters. It's a different film in regards to presentation and plot. However, the ending has an ambiguous scene or two which makes you wonder what just happened. If you watch it...

Actually Pitman, I don't think the film ends ambiguously. It's pretty clear with the bag and t-bear shot that he has returned to Japan for her. *spoiler alert* Well now, that's what we are led to believe. But if that's the case, why is the very last scene of him in the police station under arrest? ...

That was great. It felt like I was right back in the Hyatt with Bob and Charlotte. If you can post some pics too, that would be awesome.
