    Critics Notebook: At the Berlinale, B-sides, Not Singles

    It was about halfway through “Jew Süss”, Oskar Roehler’s staggeringly awful new drama, that I was reminded of my great-aunt, now dead more than seven years. This was a surprise, for a number of reasons. I don’t think of her often; we were never especially close. In ...
