Lebanon Again

Lebanon was named as the best film of 2010 by D.B.  And while my interest was piqued by his initial review, I still wasn’t sold.  For as many reviews I read that echoed his thoughts, I read several that called it an overblown, overrated message movie.  Now that it’s finally out on DVD, I’ve caught up to it and I find that my thoughts fall somewhere in between the two extremes.  But I still found the film intriguing enough to give it a quick write up for the New Haven Review.

Wherever you fall on the argument for or against the film, you can’t deny that director Samuel Maoz has announced himself as a major new director in the international film community.  He’s one to watch.
