Jeff Goldblum, with his ironic domineering smirk, is Adam Stein, a Holocaust survivor and mental patient who lords it over an Israeli insane asylum like a Jewish vaudeville R.P. McMurphy; they should have called this One Flew Over the Meshuggenah’s Nest. Adam Resurrected flashes back to Stein’s days as a prisoner, where he saved his hide — but lost his soul — by literally pretending to be the Nazi commandant’s dog. The director, Paul Schrader, tries for cleansing audacity, but ends up too close to farce. C
