    By the end of Trembling Before G_d, you desperately wish that at least some of DuBowski's subjects would see the light.
  2. Reviewed by: Dennis Harvey
    While seemingly insoluble divide between personal identity and collective belief lends the documentary an intense focus, it's also a narrow one.
  3. DuBowski focuses on religious faith as much as sexual preference, which may be the most interesting aspect of the film.
  4. 50
    Dubowski's movie is an act of hope that the basic human needs of the gay Orthodox will someday be reconciled with their faith.
  5. 50
    Obviously the director has her point of view on the subject and the film is thusly slanted, but this bias, while good for the cause, may not be best suited for thorough documentary filmmaking.
