An examination of the creation of the state of Israel in 1948 through to the present day.[Synopsis from the director, courtesy of Cannes Film Festival] : "The Time That Remains" is a semi biographic film, in four historic episodes, about a family--my family--spanning from 1948, until recent times. The film is inspired by my father’s diaries of his personal accounts, starting from when he was a resistant fighter in 1948, and by my mother’s letters to family members who were forced to leave the country since then. Combined with my intimate memories of them and with them, the film attempts to portray the daily life of those Palestinians who remained in their land and were labeled "Israeli-Arabs," living as a minority in their own homeland.

Once the drugs are introduced, you soon realize how short lived this happiness will last. The downward spiral of Dan and Candy's life propels out of control, at a pace much like Requiem for a Dream. I so wanted them to succeed and live out a life bursting with love and all things just as glorious, but sadly, this is not the case. Heroin on paper does not sound as bad as other drugs, but when you see movies that portray heroin addicts, suddenly you realize, just how insanely addictive the drug can be. Ledger and Cornish did such a phenomenal job during their withdrawal scenes, that I actually felt like I could relate to what they were experiencing, and it was awful. Kermit, managed to say hello during one scene, and boy was it emotional. My admiration towards Geoffrey Rush is growing with every single movie I see him in. Man he is good. I don't know if it's his voice or what, but every time I see him act, I get this warm fuzzy feeling like he's my favorite grandpa. Anyways, I am damn proud of Dan at the end of the movie, which I think you'll agree. Solid movie gem! Long live Ledger!!!

Brett W (kr) wrote: Visually rich and vibrant, worth watching if you're a sci-fi buff, but on the whole this film's plot is too incoherent and choppy to really allow the viewer to sit back and enjoy the scenery...like Blade Runner, which this tries so carefully to emulate.
Ashleigh S (us) wrote: It was really, wierd. I kinda jumped into it expecting a laugh, but except for a couple of awkward moments, it was a near ridiculous drama. I'm not quite sure what to think about it. But watching Lucas Black's angry face and listenin' to him talk is always a plus!

Antonia S (us) wrote: Wonderful, silly, fun 60's-screwball comedy. It's not going to win any Pulitzer prizes, but that's not what it sets out to do. It's lighthearted, endearing, innocent and funny. And whether you're male or female, it's not hard to look at, with two gorgeous leads. Another reviewer criticized the under-use or mis-use of Lauren Bacall's talents, but in fact, she is perfect in the role, and looks like she is just plain having fun - she's allowed to, isn't she? Great film for when the world gets all too serious and complicated - like a comic book for the brain.
