DVD The Time That Remains [DVD]
"[R]ight from the start we're given notice that Suleiman's wry, deadpan humour is still very much in evidence."Sight and Sound 4 stars out of 5 -- "Suleiman relies on a wry, deadpan gaze that recalls his mentor, Jacques Tati."Total Film "Simultaneously autobiographical and fantastical, the films of Elia Suleiman mine the conflict between the Palestinians and the Israelis for humor, pathos, and eerie poetry....[A]n ambitious, wide-ranging film..." -- Grade: B+A.V. Club 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Palestinian director Elia Suleiman's autobiographical blend of sardonic humor and bitter poetry provides fresh insight into the suffering of his countrymen since the birth of Israel in 1948."Box Office "Suleiman still handles emotion cautiously and tentatively, and the result is somehow all the more stirring for that. He remains above all a cerebral filmmaker, with a measured, controlled, reflective voice."Film Comment

DVD The Band's Visit [DVD] [Canadian]
3 stars out of 5 -- "Eran Kolirin fashions a melancholy comedy in which the sound of music transcends national boundaries."Total Film "[T]he comedy eases you into the story and obscures the currents of seriousness swirling under the film's surface....Mr. Kolirin, it emerges, is wrenching comedy out of intense melancholia."New York Times "Kolirin's film emerges as an entertainingly subversive call for parties on all sides of the divide to fact the music and dance."Sight and Sound "[The film] can now be seen and appreciated for what it has in abundance: visual wit, verbal charm and a completely droll sense of humor."Los Angeles Times "[S]omething marvelous happens as the filmmaker, in his first feature, expertly metes out small scenes of communication....BAND swings with the rhythms of hope." -- Grade: A-Entertainment Weekly "[A] sweet, touching story....It's perfectly pitched and always likeable and charming..."Box Office 4 stars out of 5 -- "THE BAND'S VISIT has some profound lessons to impart, but they arise gently, made beautiful by Shai Goldman's cinematography and Kolirin's subtle direction."Empire "A long night's journey marked with comedy, human nature, and bittersweet reality. Richly entertaining..."Chicago Sun-Times
DVD When I Saw You
3 stars out of 5 -- "[S]ignificant -- and, because of the situation in Syria, timely..."Empire
