  • Joshua Z. Weinstein's film is very modest but never less than interesting in the insights it offers into this rarefied world on the edge of Manhattan.

    April 4, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a film that just keeps getting stronger as it goes, unfolding almost imperceptibly and becoming deeper with each scene.

    February 2, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • It goes within one of the world's most filmed cities to discover an environment rarely revealed to outsiders. But it also wins kudos for the emotional honesty of its uncomplicated narrative.

    December 11, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • This terrifically authentic look at life inside New York's Yiddish-speaking Hasidic community is a bittersweet treat - a vibrantly engaging portrait of down-to-earth lives that is affectionate, amusing and ultimately very moving.

    December 10, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Whatever pickle he gets himself in, we can't help but root for Menashe.

    December 7, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It is small and specific, admittedly, but it also tells a universal story about a father's struggle to hold on to the son he loves, and it tells this story tenderly, thoughtfully, beautifully.
