Silver Jew.

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

Only after fourteen years of cutting records under the Silver Jews moniker did David Berman feel fit enough to hit the road. Silver Jew is the Michael Tully-directed documentary following Berman's 2006 pilgrimage to Israel, spiritual home to the Jewish faith that has reignited him after dark times. But Silver Jew's a road movie with more than just backstage footage in mind. In addition to the requisite live snippets of favorites old ("Random Rules") and newish ("There is a Place"), the film's climax captures Berman's emotional first trip to the Western Wall in Jerusalem. It's particularly heavy to see such a titan of rock & roll letters be moved as much by others' words as we have so many times by his.
