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.

Foxtrot is a cinematic delight with a profound message at its heart and many striking shots that resonate long after the final credits roll.

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
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.

Foxtrot excels at showing the tedium and dehumanizing effects of military deployment.
February 28, 2019
A beautifully shot and ambitiously crafted film about the absurdities of life in Israel.
February 27, 2019
Maoz's writing is matched every step of the way by his direction, and Foxtrot is a properly visionary work.
February 27, 2019
Maoz creates a deadpan J'accuse, razor-edged and hugely original. The truth? It is unmissable.
February 27, 2019
Before the retrospective letdown, there is an exhilarating kind of disorientation as we move from one narrative section to the next.
February 26, 2019
Maoz's masterful, intelligent feature shows how war can challenge a decent family unit, while hollow rhetoric destroys its spirit. A salutary film that eschews gimmickry or empty sloganeering, Foxtrot deserves to be seen.
