  1. smndvdcl's rating of the film Menashe

    Joshua Weinstein (no relation to Harvey) has made a delightfully humane film, entirely in Yiddish, of the ultra-orthodox Hasidic Jew community in Brooklyn, NY. As a counterpoint to perfectly decent liberal Jewish representatives in MSM, it's refreshing to gain a clearer perspective on the lives of devout believers. It's the mundane realism of this tale which makes it so engaging. A compelling spectating experience.

  2. Django's rating of the film Menashe

    A small film even by small film standards but its scope perfectly fits the scale of the story of a man trying to navigate between his personal desires, his commitment to his traditions, and his responsibility to his family. I could have added an extra star just for the delicate performances and the chemistry between the father (Lustig) and son (Niborski).

  3. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film Menashe

    If the Dardennes directed a film about Orthodox Jews in Brooklyn. Also it's such a priviledge watching a Yiddish language film.
