Review – “My Father My Lord”

This is a cautionary tale of mindless faith, this time from an ultra-orthodox Jewish perspective. While reviews by the NY Times and others stressed its compassion, I felt that David Volach, the writer/director, was harsher and much more critical. In any case, I thought it was a hell of a movie. It won the Best Film award at Tribeca in 2007. The Wikipedia review is here. Its link to IMDB has an option to view it.
