REVIEW:
THE BETRAYERS

travels

"The novel and its characters aren't making an argument for Zionist ideas. Zionism is, instead, the undercurrent and setting against which the action, character development and thematic questions are explored; it is taken for granted and given. This sort of philosophy/politics-as-setting allows the reader - or this reader at least - to suspend potential responses or arguments, and to instead explore with the characters the contours of their stories and discoveries."

REVIEW: CALVARY

kane

"Calvary is as much a whodunit (or, who'lldoit) as it is a tour through a community that's come unmoored from [Catholic] tradition. Possibly about to leave them, the film weighs the worth of Father James in their lives--and the actual worth of their lives. The man, on the cusp of woebegoneness but still harboring a spark, quietly galumphs around town like a superhero who's lost his powers, but is still trying to do good for the self-destructive residents."

REVIEW:
THE TRIP TO ITALY

kane

"Following in the footsteps of poets Byron and Shelley, the two contemporary Romantics indulge their minds as well as their stomachs. They do so in order to play a who-knows-more-about-what game of cultural one-upmanship more than for the sharing of knowledge but it remains lighthearted throughout. With nothing strictly scripted for the film, the two men draw on wide-ranging source material for their improvised back and forth and as such the dialogue feels fresh, immediate and accessible."
