Sofia what have you done to me!

I can't stop watching this film, I can go for a week or so but I end up watching it again. Such a beautiful film, I'm sure I will get tired of it eventually, maybe...

My advice is to only watch it when you are completely sure it's the film you're in the mood for.

Otherwise over-watching could cheapen the experience.

Of course, if anyone is so in love as to join a msg board deticated to the film, it's unlikely you'll tire of LIT anytime soon.

I like to wait until I'm in the mood for it because it makes for a more poignant experience. However, since I watched it back in October I don't think there's been a day I haven't thought about the relationship Bob and Charlotte have, and what might happen after they part.

I've pretty much gotten over my binge-watching of LiT(I used to fall asleep to it every single night, usually shutting my eyes around the photo shoot scene). The only time I seem to put it on now (I think I've seen this posted on another topic) is when I'm having a bad day and I need something familiar and comfortable to get my mind off things.
I'd rather be a gear in a big, deterministic, physical machine than just some random swerving.

me too.

I like relaxing to LIT against a suishy cushion and with a malibu and coke, and then falling asleep.

By the end im a bit tipsy, and Just Like Honey on the credits makes me feel so sad but happy at the same time :)

i was planning to watch it again, but ive just lent it to a friend, so i'll have to make do with the soundtrack...

yeah im the same. to be honest i have become desensitised to it. i like just having it on in the background, with the evocative soundtrack and beautiful lighting. i dont even have to look at the screen as it just gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling of comfort. sure, i ll never get back the feeling of wonder the first couple of times i watched it, which is a bit of shame as its such a fantastic film, but instead it has become like an old friend

think about it at night when Im falling asleep...It is indeed like an old friend..something comforting, intimate...

Dont watch as much as I used to but its always on my mind and has never left my heart.

I've watched this movie alot,but have yet to be desensitized to it. I have seen it enough to visualize scenes in my mind while I get ready to try and sleep or when I'm daydreaming(when I get the chance!). I do listen to the soundtrack more than I watch the movie because I travel often and I find the music soothing just like the movie...like I'm with an old friend (perfect description,masterp!).
