Brilliantly constructed with a visual audacity that serves the subject rather than the other way around, this is award-winning filmmaking on a fearless level.

The film tackles grief in a way so raw that it almost burns, with wrenching moments of both quiet and rage that simply astound.

As the full story of Jonathan's demise finally takes shape, it transpires that Maoz has kept a final, bitterly cruel trick up his sleeves.

Despite the slower pace and unusual shooting style, Foxtrot is a fascinating look at the grieving process, a topic we might otherwise dance around instead.
