Movie Reviews

Honest and insightful. Also, very entertaining

"I watched this movie in the Manhattan theater in June of 2006.This is one great movie that you will fall in love with. Although it's my belief that some knowledge (of) and/or Jewish background is necessary in order to grasp the meaning of the movie and not to misjudge the characters and the plot. Otherwise, you'd be asking (just like Bianca in the movie did) "So, your G-d is a racist then".
I think that this is a very honest movie and raises some important issues that we don't usually want to deal with or even admit to ourselves (well, this does apply to me) they (issues) exist and affect us in one way or another.
Not what I was expecting

"What I was expecting - Chessid leaves community to explore outside world, Chessid discovers that life anywhere without G-d is empty, Chessid returns or at least continues in observance with new found appreciation. What Mendy is - a poor quality film (cinematography and acting), about two former Chessidim who get kicked out of the community and find a greater appreciation with the outside life of promiscuous sex and illegal drug trade. This movie was filled with useless profanity and nudity. I was sorley disappointed. Anyone want a free copy of Mendy???"
