* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Par for the course with a movie with little, if any, actual plot. [[TropesAreNotBad So it either works for you]] [[LoveItOrHateIt or it doesn't.]]
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zL_urpYJZUI&hd=1 Alone In Kyoto]]" by Air is a wonderfully dreamlike electronic piece that plays during one of the scenes. It was beautifully placed.
* LoveItOrHateIt: As RogerEbert noted, many people find the film mind-numbingly dull, as "nothing happens". On the other hand, many (including Ebert) find the casual meandering part of the film's appeal.
