But it's not until his notes bring unexpected personal responses that he begins to understand how these constants interlock in a life fully lived, and how even the deepest loss can reveal moments of meaning and beauty Written by

The PI is filming Howard talking to Amy while on a train. Amy is in between the two and blocking most of Howard from the camera. When the film was being shown with Amy cropped out, there is no way you would see a full shot of Howard talking to himself or anything else that was in front of Amy. However, the movie suggests that Amy (and Brigitte and Raffi) are spiritual beings and wouldn't show up on media (or be seen by other people) if they didn't want to. We never see the PI again to find out whether she actually did the film editing or if they simply weren't visible. See more »
What was that thing you said about Einstein in there?
Einstein called time a stubbornly persistant illusion.
Whats that even mean
Time doesn't go from January to December, or from noon to midnight. You know we all just make it that way in our heads.
hats absurd! Try telling that to a person who's an hour late to a wedding, or that's just been sentence to 20 years in jail.
Or someone fighting the baby clock

The opening logos of Warner Brothers Pictures, New Line Cinema, Village Roadshow Pictures, Ratpac Entertainment, and Overbrook Entertainment are all in pure white, including the backgrounds, which then goes to a line of pure white domino type blocks ending with a clock shaped circle (also with pure white blocks on a white background) as the movies dialogue starts.

Emotional from start to end... worth every moment in it.
I'm going to keep this short since there are already so many other great reviews here to read... to sum it up though, this is a Very well put together film, with Many great elements, some of which are Very unexpected. I usually HATE dramas, and am more of a fun action / suspense / adventure kind of film guy... but every so often, a film such as this comes out, and its one that someone can easily break their usual style and enjoy.
Forget all the comments giving it one star and hating on this film... they seem very short sighted in their perception, and are unable to see how every moment in this movie had a point and purpose, while being Very thought out. Perhaps some are mad at the film because they don't want to admit it made them cry a ton, while still ending in a way to feel warm about.
