There's a more deeply involving structure to Novack's film than introducing the uninitiated to - or reminding the devotee of - Babel's convulsively poetic reportage from inside a revolution only beginning.
Although it will be best appreciated by those already familiar with Babel's life and works, Finding Babel is sufficiently intriguing to provoke the uninitiated to learn more.
In what probably qualifies as both an accomplishment and a shortcoming, the movie makes you want to read Babel's writing instead.
Throughout, we get brief readings of Babel's tender, unsparing stories, illustrated with scenic animation. They're no substitute for reading Babel yourself, but they honor him.
Illuminating, poignant and even somewhat suspenseful.
A documentary about the legacy of Russian Jewish writer Isaac Babel.
Whether your interest in Babel is purely literary or political or like mine a combination of both, this is a must-see film. It will make you want to read his great works for the first time or once again like me. A superb production.
A glowingly rewarding investigation into the life of a great Russian writer who met a most untimely and tragic end.
