A man, a business executive, whose only known weakness is excessive reading (and maybe a rather cold attitude) is suddenly suspended, following a complaint from one of his colleagues for mental harassment and physical violence. Feigning indifference at first, the man goes off without a word but, overcome with rage, he decides to abandon everything and from then on, wanders aimlessly through the countryside. Until one day, he comes across the inert and wounded body of a...
Insurgent, Review: Prior knowledge
Metaphors, here, metaphors there, metaphors everywhere. Besides metaphors, there’s a lot of pain and anguish and a large take-away moral in Insurgent: unity in diversity/let a thousand flowers bloom/different does not mean bad or hostile/religion or caste should preach respect and love for others, not hatred. In that milieu, the appropriate title for the second coming, Divergent being the first foray, should have been Convergent. Obviously, that would ...

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Review: Ode to Mari-age and Ageless Love
Title reminds you of the first film in the franchise, released three years ago? Of course it does. It also reminds you of My Big, Fat, Greek Wedding, Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines and Oh Dad! Poor Dad! Mama’s Hung You in the Closet and I’m Feelin So Sad! There’s something about long titles! No surprise though that most of them are comedies. This one has lots of comedy, while garn...
Where does poetic inspiration come from? Nadav Lapid's new film The Kindergarten Teacher wants to know. But something heavier is on its mind: the liabilities of that lyrical muse. We live in vulgar times, as is made plain from the opening shot of a TV talk show, and it's no milieu for a bard. Especially not one of the tricycle set.
Such is the concern of titular teacher Nira (Sarit Larry), for her pupil Yoav (Avi Shnaidman). At the tender age of 5, he has yet to conquer h...
