Protocols of Zion Photos

Movie Info

This documentary examines the rise in anti-Semitism following the 9/11 attacks, drawing inspiration from a discredited book that purportedly outlined the Jews' plan for taking over the world. The filmmakers show how the work, despite being fraudulent, has been embraced by anti-Semites in some parts of the world. Meanwhile, interview subjects include orthodox Jews and Holocaust survivors, as well as neo-Nazis and the founder of a Holocaust denial site, exposing modern-day hatred toward the Jews.

Critic Reviews for Protocols of Zion

All Critics (58) | Top Critics (25) | Fresh (39) | Rotten (19)

  • The only civilized response to this display of abject ignorance, hatred and bigotry is one of anguished despair, but Levin's film enlightens as much as it enrages.

    April 21, 2006 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Illuminates manifestations of anti-Semitism without ever really elucidating or posing solutions to the problem.

    March 4, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • It's probably useful for the world to know the extreme lengths to which bigotry is willing to travel; Protocols may not be the best-made documentary, but it definitely fills in those blanks.

    February 17, 2006 | Rating: B-
  • Protocols ultimately lacks the focus and the scope to have much effect beyond causing us to shake our heads in dismay at the usual suspects: ignorance and those who would exploit it.

    December 16, 2005 | Rating: 2/4
  • Levin's film is most effective as it objectively documents the history of international anti-Semitism, but loses ground whenever it reverts back to anecdotal coverage of the subject.

    December 9, 2005 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Rambling and disjointed, Protocols of Zion starts out pretty interesting and then begins skidding all over the place, losing focus just as it should be building momentum.

    What begins as an interesting personal journey by Levin into contemporary anti-semitism unfortunately loses its focus giving too much prominence to wackos.
