Very philosophical, silentguest! I first came across that mythological tale a few years ago, during an especially long analysis of "Star Wars: Episode II - Attack Of The Clones" (all the prequels are very underrated, by the way). Anyway, I think I'll add a philosophical nugget of my own. Well, not l...

Cryogenic, we can even add another to that great list of contrasts you started: Those who photograph (John explicitly--his photography work drawing him away from his wife--and Charlotte herself, at least previously--"you know...horses, dumb pictures of your feet") and those who are photographed (Bo...

LOL @ LostCalls! Thank you for the contributions, guys. This place is so quiet, but a few are still managing to whisper. :D OK, I've rambled. In the words of Nat King Cole: ramble on, ramble on ... !

Lovely input, Ben-B! My favourite bit: So the image is a bit of a tease really. Our minds flit between these thoughts as we enter a kind of celluloid dream world. We are ushered hush-hush into a dream-like state, where our dreams, romantic fatasies and memories all converge towards a very personal e...

Sorry, guys. I kinda flaked on this. The turn-out has been a little disappointing. But I think we have a contingent of members that want to contribute, right? I'm putting up Chapter 2 in the next 24 hours. Chapter 3 isn't too far behind. I will definitely post the chapters with regularity, from here...

I just got the HD DVD version the other day (specifically picked up the player for this title). The menu/interface differs considerably from any other version in that the main menu consists of a standard Universal HDDVD interface with a montage of various clips from the movie playing in the centre ...

Get posting in the new "Chapter By Chapter" forum! Plenty of discussion potential in there. I've created it for that reason. But not many people are biting. Interesting comment ... when you said ... you're a person that "thrives on feelings of nostalgia". I'm a bit like that, myself. I haven't had a...

I just bought a copy of the sountrack CD with picture book -- for (inl. shipping) $114.99 USD.

Ironically, because I live in England, and because of the exchange rate right now, that's barely any cheaper than the price in the thread title for just over half a year ago. Yowza!
