The Time That Remains Filmmaker Elia Suleiman makes deadpan, absurdist, non-polemical movies about the plight of his fellow Palestinians. One of the most acclaimed foreign films of the past two years, Suleiman's wry, laconic film spans six decades (from the founding of Israel in 1948 to the present) and is based on his father's career as an Arab freedom-fighter and on his own childhood. "Presents a half-century of tragedy and turmoil as a series of mordant comic vignettes." – NY Times.
The Grandmaster. A mixed bag. Gorgeous fight scenes and atmosphere, combined with some great character moments are bogged down with really confusing storytelling (granted, part of this probably has to do with the fact that I am a Western viewer). Glad I got this from the #library. Also, don't watch the netflix version. it has been edited and is apparently even more confusing. Watched DVD 07/20/14 #library
