Critic Reviews for Foxtrot

All Critics (141) | Top Critics (46) | Fresh (132) | Rotten (9)

  • [Writer-director Samuel] Moaz is a daring, unpredictable storyteller, and his eccentric plot construction, which also takes into account the son's last days, turns an intimate emotional drama into a larger statement about fate and justice.

    March 9, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A film full of mystery and switchbacks is resolved in resounding style.

    March 4, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • The film's tastefully constricted aesthetic is enjoyably at odds with its unruly, philosophical themes; the slipperiness of a dual identity, the fragility of war and the relentless manner in which grief can leak into a home's every crevice.

    March 3, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Hellerian surrealism. Slapstick comedy. There are many tones and textures set against two backdrops in Samuel Maoz's long-awaited follow-up to Lebanon.

    March 1, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • Maoz definitely knows how to knock a film together, so fingers crossed that the window between this and his next one is a lot more narrow.

    March 1, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Maoz creates a deadpan J'accuse, razor-edged and hugely original. The truth? It is unmissable.
