All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (11)

  • An engaging portrait of an academic whose work is both fueled and undermined by his vitriolic personality.

  • While this tenure-challenged Middle Eastern studies professor is hardly pleasant cinematic company, it's tough to look away.

    March 12, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A cautiously respectful documentary portrait of a political firebrand who presents himself as a beacon of moral truth in the murk of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

  • David Ridgen and Nicolas Rossier's docu on Norman Finkelstein, American Radical, promises to prove as controversial as the man himself.

    February 10, 2010 | Full Review…
  • "American radical" may be a misnomer for an intellectual whose life, thought, and rhetoric have been forcefully shaped by a mother whose concentration-camp experience turned her into a fiery booster for every available underdog.

    February 9, 2010 | Full Review…
  • Even for those likely to be sympathetic to his point of view, Norman Finkelstein can be a difficult figure to embrace.

    Free speech protects but does nor protect from public dismissal. Finkelstein does himself no favours as he pokes the bunny sufficiently to ensure professional demise.
