Most of this criticism is nonsense. The first ten minutes of The Golem establish the character of our Jewish heroes while explicitly addressing the wrong-headedness of Christian prejudice against the Jews. Using classic movie grammar (far shot to medium to closeup), The Golem opens by introducing the protagonist, Rabbi Loew, on his rooftop observatory. This opening assumes that viewers will: 1) accept that astrology and Kabbalistic Jewish mysticism are realities in this movie’s fantasy world and that only wise men are able to read the mystical signs, and 2) accept that the community represented by the Rabbi does not deserve “misfortune.” In swift movie shorthand, we’re introduced to the flirtatious semi-romance between Famulus (Rabbi Loew’s assistant) and the Rabbi’s daughter, Miriam. or sneak a peek at YouTube. © 2011 Lee Price
WitchVox This week the Witchvox staff would like to honor the work of Bronwen Forbes and thank her for her light, her wit and her incredible service to our communities. We claim this space and time to point you to her most popular Witchvox articles and other testimonials around the Pagan 'Net. I regret to announce that Bronwen (Rhomylly) Forbes, 48, passed away late Sunday night, April 10th, due to heart complications apparently brought on by the chemotherapy she was undergoing to treat her inflammatory breast cancer. She died in the arms of her husband, Alex, and our prayers and thoughts are with him and their daughter, Rose. A writer and craftswoman, she is the author of two books for Llewellyn: the amazing Make Merry In Step and Song: A Seasonal Treasury of Music, Mummer's Plays and Celebrations in the English Folk Tradition, and the forthcoming The Small-Town Pagan's Survival Guide: How to Thrive in Any Community, due out this June. Farewell, Rhomylly, and a fair wind for your journey.
