Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
92% The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018) All six of the stories in the film are riveting and although they knew the film was destined to be seen mainly on the small screen, the Coens are at the top of their visual game.‐ Jerusalem Post

50% Vision (2018) It's like a great episode of Wild Japan on the National Geographic channel with almost no animals.‐ Jerusalem Post

No Score Yet Hidden Face (2018) The movie is well structured and the cinematography is particularly good and tells the story with little need for exposition.‐ Jerusalem Post

100% Holy Air (2017) Holy Air is an engaging and charming comedy with dramatic overtones and it isn't quite like anything you've seen before.‐ Jerusalem Post

59% Operation Finale (2018) This fact-based story is a carefully executed retelling of the Israeli operation to catch Eichmann in Buenos Aires and bring him to Israel to stand trial for his part in the Holocaust.‐ Jerusalem Post

No Score Yet The Other Story (2018) A gripping, touching and unpredictable story about a troubled father-daughter relationship that weaves in the conflicts between secular and ultra-Orthodox Israelis, a struggle that is so central to Israeli life but rarely the focus of fiction.‐ Jerusalem Post

78% The Angel (2018) All in all, [The Angel] is an entertaining look at a little-known story from recent history.‐ Jerusalem Post

No Score Yet Flawless (Haneshef) (2018) Flawless... tries to combine two hot-button issues - female insecurity and the struggles of a transgender teen to fit in - and ends up with an unconvincing, superficial look at both these subjects.‐ Jerusalem Post

No Score Yet Laces (2018) Laces is a new and welcome instance of a character who would once have been in the shadows taking center space on the big screen.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2018
No Score Yet The Unorthodox (2018) But what might have been a preachy history lesson, in Malka's assured hands, becomes a lively and suspenseful film.‐ Jerusalem Post

82% Juliet, Naked (2018) The film is so much fun that I actually wished it were longer...‐ Jerusalem Post

45% The Meg (2018) The Meg, which is really pretty terrible (although occasionally - and intentionally - so bad it's funny), is for hardcore shark-movie fans only.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Aug 21, 2018
88% Whitney (2018) Macdonald puts her story in the context of what was going on culturally and politically at the time, and avoids most biopic clichés to turn Whitney into a sad and riveting fable of a princess...‐ Jerusalem Post

No Score Yet Ferrante Fever (2017) Like a good book club session, Ferrante Fever is fun because it's nice to be in the company of people who are as crazy about these novels as you are.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2018
No Score Yet Her Love Boils Bathwater (Yu Wo Wakasuhodo No Atsui Ai) (2016) Those who aren't put off by the inherent sadness in the concept will find this film compelling in its depiction of how this heroine chooses to choreograph her own exit, and although you may cry, you won't leave the theater depressed.‐ Jerusalem Post

No Score Yet Driver (Before Memory) (2017) Those with patience will find that Driver is a ride worth taking.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2018
82% Molly's Game (2018) It's entertaining enough and may play better on the small screen than at the movies, but in spite of its cleverness, it is never truly compelling...‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2018
85% Disobedience (2018) In Disobedience, everyone speaks softly, almost in a whisper, as if they were praying... That's the director's choice, but it doesn't make for riveting viewing.‐ Jerusalem Post

95% Menashe (2017) It's a touching and nuanced film, and so skillfully made that you quickly get over the novelty of the fact that its characters are speaking Yiddish and get right into the story.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted May 24, 2018
100% Keep the Change (2018) Keep the Change is brilliantly written, acted and directed, a triumph in so many ways. It is so suspenseful and entertaining that I sincerely believe I would have loved it even if I had no personal connection to autism.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted May 10, 2018
No Score Yet The Cousin (Ha'ben dod) (2017) Tzahi Grad's film The Cousin is an odd and interesting look at the disconnect between what many Israelis believe and how they actually live.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted May 8, 2018
No Score Yet The Invisibles (Die Unsichtbaren - Wir wollen leben) (2017) It's a testament to Rafle's skill as a director that even though we [...] know that the characters survived, The Invisibles keeps you on the edge of your seat.‐ Jerusalem Post

25% 7 Days in Entebbe (2018) Director Jose Padilha seems to be conflicted about the story he is trying to tell. He must know that people who point guns at children's heads, no matter how noble their long-term goals may be, are inherently unsympathetic.‐ Jerusalem Post

93% See You Up There (Au revoir là-haut) (2017) See You Up There has an energy and intelligence that will remind you why it's worthwhile to see movies on the big screen.‐ Jerusalem Post

35% Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House (2017) It isn't as great a movie as All the President's Men, but political junkies won't want to miss it.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2018
No Score Yet Shelter (2017) These two-women movies depend on a strong cast and Shelter works because of the talent of the actresses who star in it.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2018
90% On Body and Soul (A Teströl és Lélekröl) (2018) It weaves a spell that will entrance you while you are watching it, although afterwards, in the cold light of the lobby, certain plot turns may strike you as so absurd that you may not understand why or how you enjoyed it as much as you did.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2018
98% The Cakemaker (2018) It tells a twist-filled story about love and loss that will resonate with audiences because of its carefully observed characters and sense of place.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Dec 28, 2017
No Score Yet The Museum (2017) You won't learn any statistics about the museum, but the movie illuminates the essence of this complex institution.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
100% Primaire (2016) Elementary is a very honest and engrossing story that will bring you back to your school days, and its insights will give you great respect for anyone tough and brave enough to choose teaching as a profession.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2017
80% Scaffolding (2018) There is a feeling of authenticity about the film: Yair knows these kids and teachers, and he never sacrifices the story to make a point.‐ Jerusalem Post

100% Sammy Davis, Jr.: I've Gotta Be Me (2017) This delightful and entertaining documentary looks at the life and career of a musical star you thought you knew. It portrays a complex, unique and very talented man who courted controversy his whole life.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2017
95% Foxtrot (2018) A brilliant movie, one that is so rich thematically, visually, musically and emotionally, that one viewing is not enough to begin to absorb all it has to offer.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
No Score Yet Longing (2018) Longing seems stranded, too slick and insubstantial to be an art house movie but too depressing and dark to be any fun.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2017
No Score Yet Antenna (2016) [Antenna] skillfully blends comedy and drama as the various characters try to live their lives in the increasingly long shadow of their father's obsession, which will strike some as magnificent and others as misguided.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2017
No Score Yet One Man and His Cow (La Vache) (2016) La Vache is beautifully photographed, and both its Algerian and French locations look so lovely that it would be a shame to see the film anywhere other than in a theater.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2017
71% Double Lover (L'amant double) (2018) It's a combination of Rosemary's Baby, every evil-twin movie you've ever seen, and a chic high-end perfume ad, with an emphasis on the ad.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2017
91% The Other Side of Hope (Toivon tuolla puolen) (2017) It's rare that a movie that is concerned with issues currently in the headlines is more than that, but Aki Kaurismaki's touching and funny The Other Side of Hope, which focuses on the migrant crisis in Europe, pulls it off.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
69% The Carer (2015) Those who love Shakespeare and great British acting should not pass up The Carer.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
No Score Yet Saving Neta (2016) Some will find the film too episodic and slow, but those who give it a chance will find it touching and rewarding.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2017
91% Irreplaceable (Médecin de campagne) (2016) When you see something this real, it is extremely compelling, and you root for these doctors as they work against often impossible odds, and savor their small triumphs.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2017
93% Wonder Woman (2017) Wonder Woman ends with a sequel on the horizon, that will certainly get made if the movie inspires little girls to ditch their Disney Princess regalia and learn to scare off creeps with the raise of an eyebrow, the Gal Gadot way.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted May 29, 2017
No Score Yet Indoors (Hadrei habait) (2016) Green's humane storytelling overcomes his preachier impulses.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted May 19, 2017
96% After the Storm (Umi yori mo mada fukaku) (2017) In the hands of Kore-eda and his brilliant cast, this isn't a formulaic romantic comedy but an unclassifiable blend of comedy and drama, where you root for the hero even as he lets you down again and again.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2017
No Score Yet Not A Fan (2012) The acting and details don't make up for the emptiness at the center of the film. Most of the jokes are mildly funny at best, tedious at worst. Perhaps this movie, which is basically an extended comedy sketch, would play better on the small screen.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2017
86% A Bag of Marbles (Un sac de billes) (2018) The movie's strength is that it follows the rhythm of the boys' journey, and mixes the comedy and tragedy well, often in the course of a single scene. The script highlights the brothers' resilience, as well as their vulnerability.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2017
56% Lolo (2016) Perhaps Delpy and Boon are so popular in France that audiences will go to see them in an improbable rom-com with a tired premise; but even if you are a fan, you won't enjoy them in this movie.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2017
77% Perfect Strangers (Perfetti sconosciuti) (2016) The actors are relaxed and self assured, and there are some classic farce situations that morph into something more dramatic.‐ Jerusalem Post
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2017
78% Junction 48 (2017) The charm of the young cast, especially Nafar and Qupty, is the film's strength. When they perform, separately or together, the movie soars.‐ Jerusalem Post

80% Personal Affairs (2016) Personal Affairs has its own story to tell, and Haj tells it winningly and distinctively.‐ Jerusalem Post
