Why on top of? Is it critical to the way it looks? Does it have to _look_
like movie subtitles? Screen space issue?

I'd just stick a field under the thing, coordinated with the movie. Easy to
edit, stays out of the way of the visual part of the movie, things you can't
easily do with a real film...the advantage of this venue for presentation.
