'From the milk we drank together, something of my blood, my life is in you,' Musa tells Danae, and explains more about this moving portrait than any political debate could.
| Original Score: 3/4
Becomes an odd companion piece to the stunning Capturing the Friedmans, one of the most disturbing chronicles of family dysfunction ever documented.
| Original Score: B
Slim, heartbreaking film.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
The man at its heart is a 76-year-old Palestinian named Musa, and if he and we are never quite sure what the movie is truly about it's still a pleasure to make his acquaintance.
| Original Score: C+
Elon uses quiet and silence to great effect.
| Original Score: 3/4
| Original Score: 2/4
Layered, loving and deeply personal.
A work of powerful humanism that could unsettle entrenched points of view.
Elon presumably intends to send a positive message about individual relationships transcending politics, but the film leaves too much unsaid to do so.
Full of heart-rending moments, in which people of good faith search for answers to what, in the end, remain painfully irreconcilable questions.
Fascinating in its reticence, pic's honest, well-intentioned exploration involving two families fearlessly emerges with a far different picture than was originally envisioned.
Touching, painful and powerfully affecting, Another Road Home is an amazing achievement of personal filmmaking.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
Deftly folded into the extraordinary documentary Another Road Home are an official story and an unofficial one, each with its own calculus of love and pain, braided together with uncommon delicacy and courage.
Well-intended and often poignant film that, unfortunately, too often bogs down in too much talk by its participants.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
'The personal is political' may be primarily associated with feminism, but it practically defines the Israeli filmmaker Danae Elon's fascinating journey into her past.
| Original Score: 4/5
What's remarkable about her film, in addition to its many moments of genuine spontaneity and emotion, is how much she learns along the way -- about families, patriarchy, intellect and anger.
[A] moving film.
