Fiddler’s Journey to the Big Screen on Home Video

Fiddler’s Journey to the Big Screen is now available for audiences to watch at home on Blu-ray, DVD, and via digital retailers. What follows is my original review from earlier this year: Fiddler’s Journey to the Big Screen is a documentary that comes one year after Fiddler on the Roof marked its 50th anniversary. Jeff Goldblum narrates the movie but his contribution is minimal compared to how many cast and crew provide commentary. Filmmaker Daniel…

Fiddler’s Journey to the Big Screen: A Must Watch

Fiddler’s Journey to the Big Screen is a documentary that comes one year after Fiddler on the Roof marked its 50th anniversary.

Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles

Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles explores the roots and legacy behind the fan favorite musical turned movie, Fiddler on the Roof.

Fiddler on the Roof: A Tradition Unlike Any Other

Fiddler on the Roof remains a cinematic masterpiece nearly 50 years following the theatrical release of the musical adaptation. It’s been some time since I last watched the film but there’s something about watching this movie late in December.  Tonally speaking, the first and second acts of the film could not be more strikingly different in how they feel.  No, the production design remains the same but the humor of the first half is gone. …
