  1. Bruno's rating of the film The Last of the Unjust

    "Nessa tarde, pela veemência da sua voz, pela exaltação das suas palavras, era como se a minha madrasta estivesse a viver de novo os episódios daquela noite remota em que o médico se recusou a tratar Meme. O alecrim parecia asfixiado pela ofuscante claridade de Setembro, pelo torpor das cigarras, pelo arfar dos homens que tentavam desmontar uma porta na vizinhança" A Revoada, García Marquéz, ed. Quetzal (trad. ...

  2. nica's rating of the film The Last of the Unjust

    3.5 Could have used a bit of variety with visuals and been more concise with the 'lecture' portions, with the approach of the filmmaker feeling monotonous every now and then. But the parts with the subject himself and the very open, casual way his interviews were done, stripped of any sort of packaging by the filmmaker, leaves every bit open to the audience and makes for a way more intriguing watch.

  3. fearraigh's rating of the film The Last of the Unjust

    Lanzmann tackles a contentious subject, the head of the Theriesenstadt Judenrat, using interviews that are four decades old. Surprisingly sympathetic, it lacks the scope of Shoah and many of his other films but it is an enthralling historical documentary of ideas and is well worth a look.

  7. Jason's rating of the film The Last of the Unjust

    Last "king" of the ghettoized Jews, Murmelstein also wants us to see him as a cunning Sancho Panza, thoughtfully calibrating at the apparent service of power gone mad. He wants us to see it lots of different ways. There is almost total abstraction of the actual. It ends w/ him ranting about himself in third person. This is one of the most fascinating documentaries I have ever seen, as open-ended as a life.

  8. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film The Last of the Unjust

    ★★★★ no room for the 'banality of evil' argument.

  9. msmichel's rating of the film The Last of the Unjust

    History is written by the victors and by those who survived it...the truth can be a little more dodgy. Lanzmann revisits the 1975 interview he did with Benjamin Murmelstein as he feels he needs to share this footage in what results as more then just a footnote to the masterpiece 'Shoah'. Lengthy, rewarding film that cuts in and out of the '75 talk with new footage in key locales reading the testament that remains.

  10. Michael Harbour's rating of the film The Last of the Unjust

    The interviews with Benjamin Murmelstein are fascinating. The readings by Claude Lanzmann, shot in pertinent locations, less so. The cinematography stumbles (metaphorically) in attempting to replicate the long advancing and retreating tracking shots that dominated the look of SHOAH, but with handheld cameras. It's just not the same. Good history here, but room for improvement as a movie.
