Waltz with Bashir Reviews
Walks a fine line between feature films and documentary very well. Could have done with more Arab perspective, but stands up well as a highly personal Israeli account of a horrific war and an infamous massacre.
The film tries to be as innocent as possible by portraying a soldier who developed amnesia for what has happened during the massacre. It avoids any cliches and political point of views (except for the phone call to Ariel Sharon which reports the massacre and innocently replied "Did you see it?" and when the answer was no it was the proof of the film that he hadn't anything to do with it.) The massacre happened in the course of 48 hours but those innocent criminals didn't even knew what happened! What a pity!
It's actually a very clever way in delivering the message without being discredited
The story is about the atrocities of war, they're not sure if their dreams are real, imaginary, or just the gateway to a flood of memories they'd rather not have to face.
Waltz with Bashir is the best animated movie for adults and film lovers out there. The movie is dark, shocking and it was good choice to make it animated, why you ask well with animation you can animate whatever you and I'm talking about you can make it gritty, happy, depressing or realistic, and the animation in this movie fitted the tone perfectly.
I'm not going to talk any more of Waltz with Bashir and I know I should tell you all about the movie but I think this one is special and to the people who haven't seen yet and just came across this review, the only thing I have to say to you is go watch it knowing nothing and see what kind of experience you get, if you hate that's fine it's your opinion but if you love it good for you.
