I know this is a really, really old topic, but I couldn't resist. I love the following quote: "Following that night of partying, Bob carries Charlotte back to her room and she never wakes up (she may or may not be passed out and nothing happens between them)." Because (according to whoever wrote thi...

WARM-UP DISCUSSION: DVD Menu/Interface

WARM-UP DISCUSSION: DVD Menu/Interface NOTE: This thread is just to discuss the overall "layout" and "mood" of the DVD, not the bonus features. There's a separate thread for the latter that will be coming at the end of the entire CBC discussion. SYNOPSIS: I thought I'd start with this one, rather t...

WELCOME To Chapter By Chapter! (Discussion Index)

Hi Folks, Welcome to Chapter By Chapter! http://i567.photobucket.com/albums/ss113/weareawake/Graphics/lit_cbc_ad_banner_reg-1.jpg Over the course of the following year, I hope we'll be examining, in the words of Bob_san, the "fabulous" Lost In Translation, in exacting detail. How exacting? As exacti...

sounds good. A 'wikipedia' feel would work well I feel, with small photos interspersed amongst text, so people can visually identify with the topic and what is being discussed within the text. It doesn't have to be all that visually driven, though. Wikipedia isn't. I think people are familiar enoug...

the new section is a great idea....do you guys think it would be an idea to include small pictures from the film and from the locations within each chapter for illustration? I was thinking that. The stuffy, serious side of me kinda scoffs at the idea and says it would detract from the "purity" of a...

It's a tough one, this is. By and large, I don't think film communities are made of great masses of people. What you tend to find is maybe two or three dozen (at best) becoming regular or semi-regular members. The rest come and go, fading on and off. Hey, why am I thinking of the Tokyo skyline in th...

nice graphic! i understand what you're saying, although i think the site does have a lot of repeat visitors who don't post for one reason or another. maybe chapter by chapter will get things rolling again. It's an alright graphic, but I wish there was more space above and below the frame. It feels ...

Four takers? Guys, thank you ever so much for the feedback! But I'm getting worried here. The site seems to be on its last legs. I don't know if I can justify this project with four respondents. I'll see how this thread goes for the next week or so. I might post the first chapter on 1st Feb (Sunday)...

You should *all* buy the HD-DVD version. It is now -- essentially -- a collector's item. In twenty years time, you may look back and be glad you did. Or you might be dead. Who knows, right? But I think it's worth pursuing. I've only had this thought just now. Think I may buy a copy in a few weeks . ...

This movie will always be magical. It's a unique tapesty of delicate moods and feelings woven with the finest and softest thread. It is a gentle, slow and sustained orgasm for the mind. Everything about this movie is perfect. I am reminded of an argument in another masterpiece, Milos Foreman's "Amad...

I know this is a super old thread, but I found something juicy I wish to comment on: Sofia Coppola conceived and wrote the whole thing with Bill and Scarlett and Tokyo in mind. The pre-conceived scenes, visuals, dynamics, atmosphere, colours, sounds, etc, will have been built on and around them, pla...

When Charlotte is by herself puttign makeup on its cool too. That scene is exquisite. If you notice very carefully, I believe the camera goes out of focus for an instant when Charlotte has applied her lipstick and is checking herself in the mirror. I don't have a rational explanation for this, but ...

I am glad Coppola chose to show you a lot of the city in the whole film, and instead of concentrating on Bob or Charlotte(think about it, where did Charlotte go afterward, we don't know) she chose to let us see the way to the ariport so that we become Bob at the moment. Absolutely! The ending monta...
