 Promised Land review - movie review of the Amos Gitai film starring Rosamund Pike
Promised Land by Amos Gitaï is the second Israeli film of the year to take on the subject of prostitution in modern day Israel.
This agenda of his to show us the ills of prostitution only results in giving the film a dry moralizing tone, and is illustrated by the trite linguistic and visual metaphors that the film is replete with.
The title itself "Promised Land" (also the name of the bordello in which the girls will later be), is a good example of the heavy-handedness that will later guide the entire film.

 Robert Laxalt's Sweet Promised Land
Sweet Promised Land (1957)(1), the first and possibly best-known of Robert Laxalt’s books, appears to be a personal and rather simple story about the journey of the author’s father, Dominique, to his Basque homeland after forty-seven years as an immigrant sheepherder in the American West.
Although Sweet Promised Land emphasizes primarily the challenges that immigrants must face in America and their often fruitless attempts to recapture the past, it also explores the main reasons that lie behind their decision to seek their future in America.
Nevertheless, Sweet Promised Land also describes the decline of America as a land of opportunity since the mid-century, particularly for new groups of immigrants like the Puerto Ricans, who are shown leaving for Brazil in search of another America.

Riviera: The Promised Land from Atlus, however, strays from the formula with a decidedly different approach on the game genre.
Riviera: The Promised Land was obviously created for people who want to skip all that exploration rigamarole and dive right into the meat of the story and the epic battles.
The plot takes a bit to get going but it eventually does move along, even if it's a story that you've probably experienced in some fashion in nearly every other Japanese RPG game in the past two decades.
