Adam Resurrected

A Film by: Paul Schrader
(Israel/Germay/USA, 2008, 106 Minutes, Color, English, English subtitles, Cast: Jeff Goldblum, Willem Dafoe, Ayelet Zurer, Dror Keren, Idan Alterman)

Entertainer, clairvoyant, sophisticate and Lothario, Stein veers from brilliance to eroticism, horror and madness, with flashbacks to the physical and psychological demoralization he endured under Commandant Klein (Willem Dafoe) in the Sterling death camp.

Stein appears to have everyone stymied and overawed, but an unusual new patient seems to have the magnetic power to break him free of the grip of his relentless torment.
