Killing Kasztner Reviews

Ross is very good at teasing out the politics behind Kasztner's shifting fortunes, not to mention his murky ambitions. But closure is the last thing that's needed here.

The very things that make Killing Kasztner maddening -- herky-jerky storytelling, heavy-handedness, doomy music, unearned moral certitude -- keep it moving right along.

Ambitious but ungainly.

Austin Chronicle

There are deeply complex issues afoot here -- most especially the question of how a country and a people decides who will be its heroes -- and this amateurish film, with its tabloid-TV zooms and hokey visual metaphors, simply isn't up to such complexity.

Gaylen Ross's excellent documentary explores how a forgotten hero of the Holocaust became a political target in Israel.

Absorbing untangling of how history judges choices made in extreme circumstances. Scrapes the scab off raw ethical, emotional and political perceptions of WWII heroism.

What emerges is less than an in-depth portrait of a man -- we learn little about him, aside from his intelligence, his charisma and his itch to be near power -- than a study of nationhood, history and the psychology of heroism.

A well-balanced and provocative documentary that's equally engaging, poignant and illuminating.

Notable for, if nothing else, introducing a Jewish character endowed with much of the same historical controversy as his German counterparts.

The film leaves you with a sense that Kastner's name is a casualty of rhetorical crossfire.

Director Gaylen Ross assembles a fascinating look at this complex man and the still-smoldering argument about his legacy.

Biased as journalism but engrossing as a movie, this documentary about a controversial Holocaust figure should be taken with a grain of kosher salt.

An unbiased documentary sheds light on a Hungarian Jew who saved over 1600 Holocaust victims from the death camps by negotiating directly with Eichmann.

As an examination of what happens when events on the ground collide with national myth and a look at how disinclined complex reality is to fit into tidy boxes, it can't be beat.

Tells a fascinating story in an unwieldy way...a pity the structural flaws undermine its impact.

The 2008 documentary "Killing Kasztner: The Jew Who Dealt with Nazis" is more the latter, and it arguably makes one wonder if there is such a thing as Holocaust minutiae.

Did he truly sell his soul, or was he just, as a family member says in the film, the wrong kind of hero? The film fascinates even as the man himself remains elusive.
