A bold, vivid piece of anti-war filmmaking that tears shreds into the idea of nationalist militarism. No surprise whatsoever the Israeli authorities were displeased with it. It's a raw, affecting family drama on top of that, while the middle section is basically what Jarhead should have been. Stylistically it's immensely interesting and surprising. One or two of the indulgences don't quite pay off (an animated sequence nearly lands, but maybe not quite) and a few final act punctuation marks are undeniably poetic but one could argue overly neat. These are BUT minor concerns in a brave, compelling film.
Very well-made drama, split into three parts. The only problem is that the middle section is very different tonally, and so fantastic that I wished it could make up the whole film.
Now it's still in 0 official lists yet, but I'm certain it will be in many within the next few years!
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
