Ever Again (2006)
The insidious rise of anti-Semitism in the 21st century is examined in this documentary from filmmaker Richard Trank. In a world where tolerance is supposedly the watchword, politically, spiritually and historically-based slander against Jews is making a surprising comeback, as radical Moslems encourage violence against Jews, political leaders espouse anti-Israeli policies in the name of supporting the rights of Palestinians, right-wing skinheads recruit teenagers into their ranks, and commentators often cite the Jewish state for crimes which are ignored when committed by other nations. Ever Again presents damning evidence of rising anti-Jewish sentiment in France, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, and features interviews with Alan Dershowitz, Nicolas Sarkozy, Louise Ellman and Dr. Judea Pearl. Ever Again was produced with the cooperation of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles. … More

Critic Reviews for Ever Again
It has a sketchy quality that will prove unsatisfying to those looking for something a bit thematically deeper than a simple warning bulletin.
This documentary, by an arm of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, seeks to stir up outrage about recent bursts of anti-Semitism in Europe.
[The film] succeeds in making the case that the hatred that seemed dead and buried 60 years ago is alive and growing and beginning to present itself once again as a threat to humane civilization.
Richard Trank's short documentary focuses on the rise of anti-Semitism among Muslims and neo-Nazis in Europe.
While the movie does raise awareness... it also relies on fear-mongering tactics (see title) rather than cohesive argument to foment outrage.
Capably narrated by Kevin Costner, Ever Again is a mixed bag, briskly edited, good-looking but suspect in some of its logic.
Ever Again is laudable in its intent but less than impressive in its execution.
