Does anyone know the meaning of the 'shon shon shon' bit?

But what does that mean? How does it contribute to the film?  Undecided

A big part of this movie is the fates of Sean Mallory and Sean in the flasbacks.

Then there's the My Three Seans theory (developed by Yours Truly). On this view, there are 3 "Seans" in the picture: Mallory, who goes by either John/Sean; Nolan, whose first name (we infer, as it is never revealed) is Sean; and Miranda, whose given name is Juan (a cognate for John, but also Sean). The "Sean, Sean, Sean" vocals are first associated with the flashbacks and reminiscences of Mallory for Nolan and their tragic friendship; over the course of the film, however, as a friendship develops between Mallory and Miranda, the music comes also to foreshadow the tragic ending of this second example of male bonding. Mallory loses Nolan, and Miranda in turn loses Mallory. The revolution, and the music, plays on.


That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

Personally, I think it is one of his best. The film is the most underrated movie in history, I think.
