      Rex Reed Observer Israeli films in general constitute dissenting voices against the established order by championing individual aspirations. Still, Mr. Cedar's own background makes him an unusual candidate for the role of dissenter. Sep 15, 2005 Full Review Stephen Holden New York Times Beyond casting a jaundiced eye at the community's oppressive communalism, Campfire neither endorses nor opposes the settler movement that since 1981 has become an incendiary issue in Israel. Rated: 2.5/5 Sep 9, 2005 Full Review Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News A good movie that could have been better, Joseph Cedar's sensitive Israeli drama falters when he trades sociological observations for political ones. Rated: 2.5/4 Sep 9, 2005 Full Review Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible Celluloid Wraps up rather abruptly and a little too neatly, but Campfire still roars effectively. Feb 21, 2008 Full Review Eric Monder Film Journal International Succeeds because Cedar skillfully develops his narrative, and he is ably helped by a strong cast led by Eshet and fine production Jan 5, 2007 Full Review Marta Barber Miami Herald It's a story about sexism and inequalities, and were it not for its hokey ending, the film would've gained even more international recognition. Rated: 3.5/4 Sep 23, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews
