‘Waltz With Bashir’ (2008) 100 Word Cinema Review

Score: 5 out of 5

Ari Folman writes, directs and stars in this animated film. Casting himself as a film director looking to uncover his own repressed memories of the 1982 Lebanon War, and of the Sabra and Shatila massacre, he visits old colleagues, war buddies, a psychologist and a journalist in an attempt to piece together his lost experiences.

Waltz With Bashir is a masterpiece. It’s an imaginative evocation of the brutality of war – its madness, its monstrousness, its inhumanity. Haunting, beautiful, terrifying and powerful, Folman’s documentary is an intriguing, visually arresting piece of work.
