The Golem

I love a good religiously themed movie, especially when it’s generally accurate. Now while I’m by no means an authority on Jewish mysticism, from what I looked into this seems like an accurate movie, and for that I was grateful.

The plot is actually decent, following a small Jewish town in Lithuania in the 1600s while a plague ravages the countryside. I don’t want to say too much, but it’s well worth your time to check out.
