Stalags Reviews

Unfortunately, Ari Libsker's hour-plus docu on this potentially mind-boggling topic meanders disconnectedly, as various experts, collectors and storytellers kick around anecdotes and theories that tend to cancel each other out.

Stalags carries this line of inquiry forward, cramming an overwhelming amount of information and ideas into its 63 minutes -- not nearly enough time to explore satisfactorily all that it raises.

'Stalags' refuses to confront firmly the fine line at which individual or collective memory cannot distinguish myth from reality.

Ari Libsker's film details how books like I Was Colonel Schultz's Private Bitch luridly conflated sex and violence.

The Israeli documentary Stalags, by Ari Libsker, should be subtitled, How To Turn a Sexy Subject Into a Boring Film.

At once too short to truly delve into the themes it brings up, as well as too long.

A chilling expose' which shows how Holocaust internees have been victimized twice, violated again by purveyors of smut who would stoop so low as to fabricate a pack of sadomasochistic lies for a quick buck.

Empowerment fantasies of a decimated and injured race, a kind of post-traumatic Jewish mother syndrome, or a bit of both? The film mulls these strange notions of the politics of pornography, that would have likely sent Freud's mind into a tailspin.

[Director] Libsker rightfully questions how sex and sadism have become the distorting lens through which we think about the Holocaust.

However artless its presentation, Stalags imparts material that's difficult to shake off and impossible to dismiss.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Libsker's documentary not only explores the roots of the Stalags and the means by which they were produced and sold, but even does a little detective work into the identities of the authors themselves.
