Re: Aged Eli?

The Swedish verb försvinna (imperative försvinn! ) was actually borrowed from German in the middle ages. The pronunciation still is sufficiently similar that a speaker of one of the languages would easily understand it if uttered in the other one. Another interesting cognate is Gewehr and gevär (ri...

More reflections on LMI and LTROI

Last week, I came across a thematic analysis of LMI and LTROI on WTI's Facebook page. It helped lead me to re-watch Let Me In for the first time in a few years on Sunday. Since, then I've commented elsewhere about how it illustrates losing innocence , sharing some criticism of the film, and why I st...

Re: What are you listening to?

Someone told me to check out "A Thousand Years" by Christina Perri. Took me on a strange and pleasant trip to John Legend, Ed Sheeran, and Justin Timberlake. Afterward, I played "Landslide" by Fleetwood Mac.

@danielmann861 has very good tastes. ;)

Re: Aged Eli?

Both Siggdalos and Sauvin are correct, Susanne Ruben makes a fleeting appearance in both of these scenes. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50974087741_be6b77bfec_z.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50974179102_9ac5429336_z.jpg Never noticed that about the basement scene. I always thought L...

Re: WTI Meetups?

We did one that I recall being part of, and there may as well have been others. The procedure we used, if I can recall, was we each queued up the video to start at the same time on our separate players. And we used a chat service to talk about the movie as it progressed. It worked fairly well. If t...

WTI Meetups?

I'm aware this forum used to hold virtual meetups for viewing the films and even an IRL meetup a few years ago. I'm curious if any future ones are scheduled?

Not that I would request an IRL one during the pandemic.

Re: Did anyone else like LMI better as a film?

...There might be a couple of things to mind here. One is that LTROI's "piggy" might be more than you think because this isn't the Anglosphere, and (knowing nothing of Swedish culture or values) it could be that porcinity has connotations for Swedish folk that don't occur outside Scandinavian cultu...

Aged Eli?

According to Wikipedia, a third actress (Susanne Ruben) was hired to play an "aged Eli."

I don't remember Eli's voice or appearance changing at any point in the film (unless one counts the feeding and bleeding scenes.) Did I miss something, or is Wikipedia pulling our leg?
