I just don't see what others see in this one.
12 May 2014 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Goldstein" won an award at the famous Cannes film festival. Likewise, the few reviews it has on IMDb are very positive. However, I just cannot understand any of this as I found the film to be extremely amateurish and awful. It's supposed to be a modern interpretation of Elijah, though I wouldn't have known this by watching the film--this is what Wikipedia has to say about this strange and rambling movie.

The cast of this film is made up of a bunch of Second City actors and a few others not from this comedy troop. However, despite its pedigree, I just didn't see or hear anything that made me laugh. And, you know it's going to be a chore when one of the funny guys in the film is Jack Burns. All in all, a painful movie to watch and one I wish never to see again.
