Protocols of Zion

Overview

Near the dawn of the 20th century, underlings of Czar Nicholas II created a book called The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which purported to be the outline of a master plan created by powerful Jews determined to rule the world. First published in 1903, the essay was a hoax and was revealed as such for the first time in 1921 by the London Times, but that hasn't prevented it from having a long and troubling life as a widely distributed cornerstone of anti-Semitic hate literature; it's still in print around the ...

Overview

Near the dawn of the 20th century, underlings of Czar Nicholas II created a book called The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which purported to be the outline of a master plan created by powerful Jews determined to rule the world. First published in 1903, the essay was a hoax and was revealed as such for the first time in 1921 by the London Times, but that hasn't prevented it from having a long and troubling life as a widely distributed cornerstone of anti-Semitic hate literature; it's still in print around the world, and was adapted for Egyptian television in the new millennium. When filmmaker Marc Levin was confronted with another widely disseminated bit of anti-Jewish propaganda the false assertion that no Jews died in the World Trade Center attacks of September 11, 2001, he developed a new curiosity about the Protocols and other "factual" sources of anti-Semitic hatred, and set out to find out more about anti-Jewish propaganda. The result was Protocols of Zion, a documentary which offers a surprising and surprisingly witty look at figures from the hate movement in America in elsewhere, ranging from leader of the neo-Nazi National Alliance who also sells Aryan Wear footwear to an anti-Semitic media analyst who announces that Rupert Murdoch is actually a Jew. The film also examines Henry Ford's well-documented hatred of Jews, anti-Semitism among radical African-Americans, and the memories of Levin's father, a self-described "All-American Jew."

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
If director Marc Levin wants to promote tolerance between peoples of different belief systems, he has no better example of that kind of magnanimous behavior than himself. In Protocols of Zion, the intrepid Jewish documentarian is a paragon of calmness in the face of intense ethnic hatred, coming into contact with some of the most loathsome Anti-Semites he can possibly dig up. Instead of butting heads with them, as his every instinct probably tells him to do, he listens and even nods along with their inflammatory comments. Whether this is to give them a fair platform, or just to avoid being killed, is unclear -- probably a little of both. These combustible interviews are just one of the things that makes Protocols of Zion a fascinating study on the modern perceptions and misconceptions of Jews and the Jewish faith, in the United States and elsewhere. However, the film feels like a collection of disparate informational chunks, rather than the implied promise of an organized investigation of the 100-year-old hoax referenced in the title -- a document that purportedly contains proof of a Jewish plot for world domination. Levin does use The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a fabricated text that originated in Russia in the early 20th century, as a backbone for his movie, listing a variety of the bogus dictates, then loosely tying them to modern stereotypes about Judaism held by Anti-Semites. But the movie meanders between interviews with White Power groups, Holocaust deniers, Arab newspaper publishers and Palestinian-American gangbangers, mixing in words of perspective from Jewish scholars, without finding a clear message, other than that Jews are on the receiving end of a lot of hatred from people who can't articulate their reasoning. The examples Levin provides are incredibly sobering, even if they aren't incredibly focused.
