God's Fiddler: Jascha Heifetz (2011)
Critic Reviews for God's Fiddler: Jascha Heifetz
Once Heifetz becomes a household name, Rosen struggles mightily to milk drama not from his musical genius, but from his relatively unremarkable personal life.
Music aficionados will thrill to see these clips unearthed, but even they may wonder whether a televised special might have been the most appropriate venue.
The film, though generous with doses of Heifetz in performance, isn't entirely successful at illuminating the man.
His lightning-fast fingers can't fail to impress even those unschooled in the classical idiom, but when not center stage, Heifetz proves a far more elusive figure, firmly out of the grasp of Rosen's film.
Poignant, but ultimately underwhelming and lacking insight.
