    Just finished watching Lost in Translation... Is there something in that movie I don't get? Is there a hidden message somewhere in the movie that is lost while I was watching? I guess it really was lost in translation... Ah well. That film is just too arty for me. I don't get it. I just don't get it.
    Why does there have to be a hidden message? Didn't you find any of it touching. Didn't you empathize with any of the charcters, wasn't it amusing. If so isn't that good enought and all that needs ot be "got"?

    I still don't get it. Being honest, I'm slightly incapable of emotional feelings... I... sad story... two people met at the wrong place at the wrong time. That's how I feel. By the way, how do you "empathise" with the characters?

    Does Nicole Kidman resemble Tom Cruise in any way?

    I saw 'Lost in Translation' shortly after 'Love Actrually' and thought that it (the former) was probably a much better and more honest tale of love.

    Also rosie was telling the truth, she did only drop a little pizza on herself, and that was all.

    And I tried to use a false date, but it was an online thing and it wouldn't accept it (I tried 31/06/2004 at first then 31/05/2004). Somehow with the magic of computers they knew I was lying.

    Also, anyone know why on the list of university societies there's a conservative one and an lib dem one, but no labour? There's not a fabian society listed either, though I guess there could just be a gerneral Cambridge one of these (rather than Uni specific).

    i saw lost in translation recently too. i thought it was really good actually. quite subtle. i mean most films like that are fairly predectable man meets woman, they fall in love... blah blah. lost in translation was about finding someone you connect with, and i suppose it was quite sad when they had to go their separtate ways, but it was quite positive, in general, i thought.

    Labour as a whole may be slightly left-of-centre. Nobody could call David Blunkett left-wing though!

    Well seeing as I missed the conversation, and that no one had mentioned the fact above, I thought I could contribute, even it if was 5 hours after the discussion. This is an open forum, right?

    Oh, I read that on politicalcompass.org and also read the BNPs manifesto as part of General Studies last year :rolleyes: . Eleven of their twleve "ponts" are rather socialist in view, the twelvth being very authoritarian, giving them the "right-wing" look.

    The teams are decided by theaman IIRC, and if there is a quiz tonight, I can't participate.

    The truth is that on issues like health, transport, housing, protectionism and globalisation, their economics are left of Labour, let alone the Conservatives. It's in areas like police power, military power, school discipline, law and order, race and nationalism that the BNP's real extremism - as authoritarians - is clear.
