"ONE HELL OF A DOCUMENTARY"
"EQUALLY FASCINATING AND INFURIATING"
"Granted amazing access to all parties in the story, producer-director Maya Zinshtein, a Russian-born investigative journalist, smartly places her shocking portrait of a team and its fans in a broader sociopolitical context."
"Memorable... in a year in which we have seen all over the world how easily a spark can turn into a fire of hatred, FOREVER PURE should serve as a cautionary tale about how we must work together to avoid the blaze."
"✮✮✮✮ - A riveting portrait of football culture"
"One of the most fascinating documentaries about a football club [...] that we’ve seen."
"Documentarian Maya Zinshtein has crafted something remarkable with the incendiary and complex"
"Zinshtein’s film moves from a document on the rise of Israel’s most infamous club to an exposé into the nation’s systemic racism... The comparison to Trump’s America is simply too uncanny to ignore."
