"Censored Voices" likely would've benefited from additional reflection from the older, on-screen subjects. But what's there is consistently thought-provoking.
Illuminating German-Israeli documentary.
To be sure, "Censored Voices" can hardly be seen as anything but a political document, one that shares Oz's views. But even those who don't will be moved ...
Censored Voices is a remarkable document that raises important questions about the evolution of modern Israel.
Captivating newsreel footage from the conflict underscores these audio confessionals; Loushy also filmed the men in the present day, listening to their honest, open, decades-old testimonies.
"A society that won't tell itself the truth [...] is in big trouble," says one of the interviewees. The words have perhaps never been more true. And not just for Israel, as the movie implies.
Censored Voices speaks richly about the sheer experience of war, its chaos, the contrast between any idea of how it was supposed to be and how it actually was, and how the protagonists mitigated that difference.
In Mor Loushy's compelling documentary the rigours and reality of war are revealed through the unexpurgated original tapes and illustrative archival footage.
Despite being in the now popular Israeli hand-wringing genre, one that doesn't envision ending the Zionist system that makes IDF soldiers et al feel soul-sick, this is worth seeing for its honesty and germaneness to current Israeli horrors.
Censored Voices, which was executive produced by Super Size Me's Morgan Spurlock, is accessible and educative.
"Censored Voices" demonstrates that no matter how existential the threat, or how just the cause, war inevitably leaves scars on the victors as well as the vanquished.
The accompanying visuals are largely archival footage, but more effective are the contemporaneous, patriotic war songs juxtaposed with the men's descriptions of the atrocities they witnessed.
A profoundly revolting and eye-opening documentary that exposes the tragedy of Zionism through censored archive records in which Israeli soldiers recount the atrocities they committed in the Six-Day War and which aren't so different from what was done to the Jews in the Holocaust.
