Manchester by the Sea (2016)

"The centerpiece of Kenneth Lonergan's drama Manchester by the Sea is a relatively short scene, a conversation between two characters that contains the most moving moments I've seen on screen in years." ‐Jerusalem Post

Our Father (The Bouncer) (2016)

"In spite of Cohen's performance and the director's obvious affection for and understanding of the hero, the movie becomes heavy and tedious, and it is an ordeal to sit through." ‐Jerusalem Post

Umrika (2015)

Love & Friendship (2016)

Julieta (2016)

Barash (2015)

"The two lead actresses both give appealing and believable performances. Had the characters, especially Dana, been a bit more developed, the movie would be far more vivid and distinctive." ‐Jerusalem Post

Mountain (Ha'har) (2015)

The Commune (Kollektivet) (2015)

"The movie is kept afloat by the extremely lively and likable Dyrholm's performance as Anna." ‐Jerusalem Post

Munich (2005)

"It's an incoherent film, as if Spielberg desperately wanted to say something important and could only come to the conclusion that killing is bad and we're all human. " ‐Jerusalem Post

Sweet Mud (Adama Meshuga'at) (2007)

Posted Mar 22, 2016

Ha-shoter (Policeman) (2014)

Under the Hawthorn Tree (Shan zha shu zhi lian) (2010)

The Debt (2011)

Reality (2013)

Year Zero (2005)
