What makes a good yarn and possibly an important book does not necessarily make for a consistently great or engaging movie.
"The Prime Ministers: The Pioneers" takes on a vast subject - the history of the modern state of Israel - from a disappointingly narrow perspective.
Sometimes so clunky, it suggests a return to the bad old days when nonfiction films could be mistaken for schoolroom torture devices.
A wide and excellent array of archival footage and photos vividly accompany Avner's recitation.
While not as comprehensive or objective as one would hope, this vivid documentary will prove fascinating to history buffs.
A bit overstuffed with history and tales of perseverance, the film doesn't have room for balanced political analysis or even exposition at times.
"The Prime Ministers" is, despite its minor flaws and advertised overstatement, is a must-see.
No matter what your political opinion about the Middle East, without understanding how we got to where we are is an indispensable component of determining where we are going next
This is a national history that feels like your great uncle trying to remember the time he went to Disneyland's Hall of Presidents.
A deadly dull Zionist booster shot that trades away what benefits in firsthand recollection and access it has through a steady drip of reflexive self-importance.
In what is hardly sufficient time, Avner gives the viewer a feel for the characters and the political policies of Levi Eshkol and Golda Meir.
The documentary is dressed to the nines in pomp and patriotism, which seems meant to hide the fact that the film offers very little in the way of valuable reporting or insider information.
