Review

"A powerful, must-see documentary that shines a new light on an old tragedy." -- Indiewire

"A valuable and frightening survey of contemporary anti-Semitism." -- New York Post

"Ghoulishly funny and smartly sobering." -- Newsday

"a compelling case that authenticates our greatest fears." -- San Francisco Examiner

"‘Protocols of Zion’ makes its case expertly and powerfully." -- The New York Times

Product Description

While rattling through the bustling streets of New York City in a yellow cab filmmaker Marc Levin (Slam) discovered the idea for his next film from an unlikely source. Striking up a conversation with his Egyptian taxi driver Levin was unnerved when the conversation turned to the events of September 11 2001. Angrily informing the filmmaker that he believed no Jews had died in the terrorist attacks on that day the cabbie explained that they had all been warned of the event in advance so they could stay safely home.
Levin subsequently turned to the 100-year-old book The Protocols of the Meetings of the Learned Elders of Zion, which was exposed as a forgery in the 1920s but is still followed by a disconcertingly large number of anti-Semites across the globe. After examining the book-which was furtively written by the Russian Secret Police and was alleged to be the meeting minutes of a group of Jews who were hell-bent on world domination-Levin decided to explore some of the protocols in his film.
Traveling across America with his father Levin encounters various hate-filled figures and attempts to understand their feelings toward Jews. His most entertaining Michael Moore-like excursions take place in New York City where he encounters people whose oddball behavior does a fine job of discrediting their views and attends a discussion group about Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ. However these moments are tempered by some jaw-dropping footage of an Egyptian TV mini-series based on the Protocols book and the Malaysian prime minister paraphrasing from the pages in 2003. Creating a fascinating and worthwhile film Levin sensibly discounts various crackpot theories but makes it clear that many of the people who spread anti-Semitic feeling remain worryingly influential.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Original in This One October 11, 2009
Format:DVD
My wife and I checked Protocols of Zion out from our local library. The synopsis on the case looked good, so we both had high expectations. When we logged on to Amazon.com and checked the reviews, we were disappointed to see that people who had seen the film did not like it. We then watched the film. Unfortunately, I have to agree with the reviewers; you can skip this film and not miss anything.

Director Marc Levin investigates the resurgence of anti-Semitism in the 2000s. He discusses the famous forgery The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion and what it reveals about anti-Semites and their paranoia.

The basic problem with this film is that it has nothing original to say. Director Marc Levin does some interviews with various people who agree that the Protocols are true and with those who work to combat anti-Semitism. The film starts off pretty well, but it soon becomes very boring and repetitive. Levin puts various members of his family in the film; I thought that the "family" scenes were especially tedious.

We also had a couple of other quibbles. The audio was distorted and we had to turn the volume up to hear the film. (There are no captions). Also, the DVD contains several previews and it was not possible to skip them by going straight to the disc menu.

In summary, I recommend that potential viewers skip this film.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nearly Unwatchable January 30, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ever Again was not a particularly well done documentary, but it's a work of genius compared to this drivel. It seems most of the other reviewers have been soft on this film because it is against the evil of Antisemitism. This film fails to make a coherent argument. The director jumps from scene to scene with no flow or direction. There are numerous tangents that go nowhere. The director likes to hear himself talk and ends up in verbal fights with idiots while he spouts stupid platitudes. Worst of all, the director seems to believe in a great all encompassing corporate conspiracy not much different than that expoused by The Protocols.

1.0 out of 5 stars VERY DISJOINTED and CONFUSING December 11, 2012
By JKH6148
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this video for my local high school video library, to introduce the students to the fraud of the "PROTOCOLS".
I assumed from the title it would expose "THE PROTOCOLS" for being the forgery and fraud that it is, and this video just does not do that.
IT was disjointed, and confusing, jumping from just a tiny bit of PROTOCOL history, to 9-11, to MEL GIBSON'S "PASSION OF THE CHRIST", to the ISRAEL/PALESTINE conflict, to anti-Semitic hate groups, to a scene with prisoners.
SOME scenes had me curious if this was pro or anti "PROTOCLS".
IT just does not make the connection of the "PROTOCOLS" to modern day anti-JUDAISM.
IT would have been much better to stay with its title, the history of THE PROTOCOLS, and the fact that it has been proven more than once as a forgery and a fraud.

Format:DVD
In the wake of September 11th, documentarian Mark Levin ("Gladiator Days: Anatomy of a Prison Murder," "Soldiers in the Army of God"), was stunned to hear people on the streets of New York City claiming that no Jews were killed when the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center fell. He was also told that the attack was not made by Islamic terrorists but was instead part of a Zionist plot that had been set down over a century early in a book called "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion." According to some this is a record of a secret meeting in which Jewish leaders set down their plan for world domination. For others it is a hoax, consisting of material plagiarized from earlier sources, perpetrated by the Tsarist police to attack the Bolsheviks. If you fall into the first camp then all you need to know about this 2005 documentary is that Mark Levin is Jewish. He does not belong to a synagogue, but his grandfather is honored in one, and since the director is Jewish this film would have to be seen as an attack on those who dare to debunk the "Protocols." If you are in the second camp then what you will find here is a look at the power and pervasiveness of hate.

I belong to the second camp, which means I think it would be interesting to see somebody from the first camp telling Osama bin-Laden that it was the Jews who brought down the WTC and not Al Qaeda's suicide hijackers. On the topic of the world Jewish conspiracy, my opinion is that it is not going too well. There is a scene where Levin is in West Palm Beach, wanting somebody to explain the Butterfly-ballot fiasco in light of the Jewish plan to take over the world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for teaching May 15, 2013

I used the movie in my US History class as part of our unit on the Holocaust and antisemitism. Worked great with my high schoolers and the reaction papers I got back showed it had definitely made them think!

This is a frustrating documentary that could have been so much better. Given the title, I had expected an in-depth look at the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a notorious forgery concocted by the Tsarist police in the late 19th century which purported to show the Jews were plotting world domination and would stop at nothing to achieve their aims. Director Marc Levin though veers off course almost from the start (a pattern he will sadly repeat throughout the film) as he prefers to talk about anti-Semitism in the United States and why so many people seem ready to believe the worst about the Jews. Occasionally one of the protocols will be read out on screen and then Levin is off on another tangent. He finds people happy to spout all sorts of drivel about how Jews want to rule the world and how all Jewish employees who worked in the World Trade Center were warned to stay away on 9/11. This is pretty reprehensible stuff, yet it isn't particularly new, and Levin has trouble linking these ludicrous comments to the Protocols. He heads off to Virginia to talk to a white supremacist who sells Nazi flags and other memorabilia and then we flick back to long (and not very interesting conversations) with Levin's father. We're shown brief excerpts of a crude recreation of the Protocols which was (I think this is correct) shown on Egyptian television and then we're off somewhere else. There is no structure at all to this documentary and by the end I was pretty frustrated. I learned quite a bit about white supremacism, and anti-Semitism in general (the clip from a 1940 Nazi film equating Jews with rats is horrific), but Levin fails in his main tasks of making the story coherent and linking it firmly to the Protocols, which remain a mystery. Who exactly drew them up? Why? We never really learn.
