  • Though it’s more testimonial exhibit than movie, “Unjust” remains a crucial document. show more

  • Murmelstein died in Rome in 1989, and having witnessed the terrible dilemmas he suffered and the mass rescues he pulled off, we can only be glad that he escaped the snap judgments of the social-media age. show more

    Intellectually stimulating and morally complex but it would have been far less painful had the producers or editors incorporated more photos and historical film clips to bring life to a film that suffers from length and a sleep-inducing monotoned interview. Should have been no more than 2.5 hours.
