  • Nobility with little pacing, imagination, or energy tends not to work too well on the screen. Rahim has the eyes of the young Mandy Patinkin. If only he had some of the wildness. show more

  • Worth a look, though it's unfortunately a far too academic affair that never surges with the suspense of many a WWII drama. show more

  • As a French Resistance thriller, Free Men is so-so, but it is driven by a mischievously interesting idea: that Muslims and Jews have more in common than they normally allow. show more
