Critic Reviews for Streit's: Matzo And The American Dream

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (5)

More than slightly hagiographic in its approach, and, as its title might indicate, gets too heavy-handed in its moralizing. It also feels much too long - this is the sort of subject for which short films were invented.

A record of another unique New York institution, making way for another glass box.

April 21, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

This gripping documentary about unleavened bread and the people who need it asks us to consider what we in the world owe one another - and demands that we do better.

April 20, 2016 | Full Review…

This lively and engaged documentary lives up to its name. It uses the story of the paradigmatic matzo manufacturer to examine what the American dream meant back in the day and what it has turned into now.

Despite much talk of diversity and tradition, Mr. Levine has little fresh to say about gentrification issues or documentary storytelling.

Rich, often surprising and touching doc about the Lower East Side's storied matzo factory.
