Sadomasochistic Holocaust Porn

Director Boaz Yakin last waded into Jewish cinematic waters with A Price Above Rubies, about a married Hasidic woman who wants more out of life, which got lukewarm reviews. Now he’s back with Death in Love, opening tomorrow, which is garnering stronger reactions. It’s the story of a sadistic Holocaust survivor (played by Jacqueline Bisset), the mother of two screwed-up sons, who slept with a Nazi in order to save herself. “Not since Liliana Cavani’s epically stupid The Night Porter has a filmmaker so wantonly ripped off the Holocaust for the unsavory purpose of strutting his unprocessed sadomasochistic fantasies,” says L.A. Weekly. The Holocaust, Yakin tritely mused to the blogger Marshall Fine, is “a symbol for a certain kind of pain and violence that people keep inside and end up passing on from generation to generation.” The son of secular Israeli expats who sent him to Orthodox schools in New York City, Yakin added that the film’s fictional plot derives from deep wells of feeling—“this movie comes from the last 43 years of my life.” Rex Reed expects viewers to walk out screaming.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at letters@tabletmag.com. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.
