WALTZ WITH BASHIR

WALTZ WITH BASHIR is not your typical cartoon.

It's a documentary about a war in 1982 in the middle east. And it's animated. Which is a little weird, but the animation does not get in the way of the storytelling. What does get in the way is the fact that I know so little about history in that part of the world, that it's hard to follow at times. The film could use a prologue to explain historical references to contemporary Americans.

But there's no question that it's a powerful film, and I highly recommend it to documentary fans.
