View Full Version : Retreive Lost "Lost in Translation" Posts

01-10-2004, 05:21 PM
If my memory serves me correctly the "Lost in Translation" thread had a lot more posts than the one currently on this site and was started by someone else as well as including a number of comments I made. I was wondering if we're to have a full discussion of a film that if were possible to retreive these posts unless they have been irretreivably lost somehow.

I think you just need to select the option to view posts older than 30 days. Actually, I'll just change the default setting and they'll appear automatically. Thanks for the heads up.

I understand the need to provide exposure to more current posts and to relegate older ones into the background but when similar threads on the same film come out they I would think they need to have the same exposure until the discussion about the same movie dies out otherwise the dicussion on the movie becomes fragmented. Sometimes different threads on the same movie compete with each other and bring out better discussion or sometimes something mentioned in one thread helps to flesh out the discussion, but if it is missing, then a true dialogue is lost.

I agree, it just that the default was set to 30 days. Ive changed it now. Definitely better to have several threads about the same film than just one. Thanks again.

I think it's a good idea to put up a homepage thread on Bertolucci's The Dreamers. I just saw it yesterday and I'm still sorting through many feelings and impressions. One thing is sure: it made a strong impression. Even if it's not a profound film, it's a beautiful one. In some ways it's deeply satisfying, in others it's disappointing, but above all it stays with me.

There should be lively discussion of it. I just scanned fifty or sixty responses to to it on the Italian website FilmUp and they constantly slide from one (virtually zero) to ten (the best there is), comments ranging from "trash" or "porno" to "I was deeply moved" and "this is a masterpiece." In other words, it's controversial in Italy, and will probably arouse a big range of reactions over here too. You can already see that from MetaCritic.
