A Film Autopsy and a Discussion of the movie "Footnote"

by Salman Hameed


Israeli film Footnote was one of the Oscar nominees for foreign films last year. It is categorized as a comedy about two Talmudic scholars who also happen to be father and son. While the movie does have some very funny moments, the second half of the film takes a more serious turn. Here is our review (autopsy) for the film (of course, you can find all our reviews here)



We also did something different this time. After the regular review of the film, we also discussed some of the political undertones present in the movie. This discussion contains plot spoilers. Here is our Film Essay (aka Micro Autopsy) about Footnote. Hope you enjoy it.



And as a bonus, here is a film autopsy of Coriolanus - the fantastic film adaptation of a Shakespeare's play by Ralph Fiennes:
