Ajami (2010)
Hollywood [may]think that Ajami is making a political statement... given the partnership of the directors. Unfortunately, it's not enough to make this a memorable film.

It's fair to ask - even beyond the gargoyles and caricatures who pass for Jewish people in the film - what the point of it all was.

It is impossible not to be moved and inspired by this story, and saddened by a life cut short.

Arranged (2007)
Maybe real life isn't as neat as portrayed here. In that case, the drawback is with reality, not the movie.

The Quarrel (1991)
[T]wo characters [who] care deeply about finding meaning and goodness in a world where a Holocaust could take place.

Although not forgotten in the broadcast history books, Berg's immense impact on mid-twentieth century American popular culture needs a fresh examination.

It ought to be noted that Lemon Tree is an Israeli co-production...When a Palestinian can make a movie like [this]then perhaps we will be ready for peace.

The Reader (2008)
...it is a movie of incredible moral obtuseness.

Sixty Six (2006)
...the sort of Jewish film that the whole family can enjoy without feeling they're fulfilling an obligation to see it.

As sparse as a Torah narrative, it raises profound theological and emotional questions.

Beaufort (2008)
In the end [it] isn't about victory or defeat... It's about surviving another day, doing one's job, and getting back to family.

Surfwise (2007)
Okay, you think your family is meshuggah? Just meet the Paskowitz clan.

...a drama about good people struggling to make the right choices in life.

...not only a fascinating story, but further proof that Israeli cinema is coming of age.

...a hopeful film that looks forward to the day when Israelis and Arabs are at peace and can focus on the little victories and setbacks of everyday life.

If the film is an indictment of anything it is how the collective experience of the kibbutz is at odds with family loyalties.

O Jerusalem (2007)
The need to touch on pivotal events makes this at times seem like history's 'greatest hits,' although the personal stories provide a narrative thread tying it all together.

...a fun slice of Jewish movie history that can still be enjoyed today. They really don't make them like this any more.

Free Land (2007)
It's to the credit of [director] Christophe Malavoy... that the focus remains on ordinary people trying to survive in extraordinary circumstances.

Tevye (1939)
One would have to have a heart of stone not to be moved.
