  • A minor movie on a major subject, a drama with an almost unbearable lightness. show more

  • A road picture mired by unsteady camera work, lackadaisical pacing and cumbersome speechmaking, Free Zone is an excruciating cinematic trek. Israeli director Amos Gitai's narrative, both visually and conversationally, is a disappointing dud. show more

  • Unfortunately, the characters feel more like symbols than people, despite strong performances, including what might be Portman's finest work to date. show more
