Critics reviews

In its array of stories we get Rabbi Loew and his hulking clay golem, along with a neat plot twist presented with real aplomb... cobwebbed automata of lifelike aspect; and a seductress and murderess disposing of would-be lovers with alchemical poison that has impressively colorful effects. But I confess I don't quite know what to make of the film's misogynist undertone, in which all the women are betrayers and all get destroyed for it.
