  • The brink of annihilation looks like a low-budget music video.

    May 5, 2010
  • [An] excellent adaptation of William Gibson's stage play.

    Oct 18, 2007
  • Jeremy Kagan's green-screen filmization, in its over-busy editing, ever-changing angles and constantly shifting backdrops, strips the play of its starkness, leaving disproportionate schmaltz and propaganda.

  • Golda's Balcony makes one yearn for Ingrid Bergman's portrayal of Meir in the 1982 TV biopic A Woman Called Golda.

  • We chart the growth of a woman and a country at the same time, a tough assignment that Harper tackles with humor and passion (even if her Kissinger impersonation could use a little work).

    Oct 12, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The big question is whether Harper's one-woman film creates a memorable character out of a woman with whom many audiences will be very familiar. The answer has to be no.
