Perhaps the most remarkable thing this unexpectedly warm and affirmative film shows us about the survivors is that, far from blocking out their past, they've managed to enjoy these unexpected years despite continually living with their personal horrors.
The best thing about Four Seasons Lodge is its subject.
[Director Andrew Jacob's] pitch-perfect film provides an affectionate look at a brave, disappearing subculture.
The lyrically complicating hand of Mr. Maysles, who shot the film with several collaborators, is everywhere apparent in the way the camera picks a path around coherence, refusing narrative in favor of the thick detail of life unfolding.
What's most beautiful of all is that this document ensures that these people will indeed live on forever. Take that, Nazis!
What's surprising about a documentary with such an obvious hook is its unforced but trenchant look at the crisis of faith dividing a small group of mostly Polish Jews who suffered through one of the most godless blights on human history.
A poignant portrait of a Jewish summer community in the Catskills (one of a few where once there'd been hundreds) peopled almost entirely by elderly concentration-camp survivors.
Supremely moving tale about holocaust survivors as well as the decline of the Borscht Belt.
The collective's flame burns bright and disrupts the darkness of a time that too many would soon rather forget. Luckily, we still care to remember.
A tender, heartfelt documentary that's ultimately underwhelming and incomplete because it fails to pack a much-needed intellectual punch.
A quietly revealing tribute to unique octogenarians: Holocaust survivors who have summered together for 25 years and the cinema vérité pioneer Albert Maysles.
