Castel: The Quest for Eternity (film #2 in The Arts section of the State of Israel section of Stephen Spielberg Jewish Film Archive). [Category: Sleaze & Outsider]

This film profiles the Israeli artist Moshe Castel, showing lots of his artworks and letting you see him in his studio creating. Unfortunately, the narration is in Hebrew, so it’s hard to follow if you don’t know the language. Still, the visuals are arresting, and that creates some interest anyway. I’d like to know more about this artist.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
