LEBANON is a fascinating war film telling the story of a young crew inside an Israeli tank. Clearly inspired by the German film DAS BOOT, virtually the entire film takes place inside the tank, much of it on reaction shots of the men. Like the German film, much of the story is told with sound, and I have to say the film sounded spectacular. It also had excellent acting, and considering the location, the film was very well shot. My only criticism is that the last act could have used a little more punch. Nonetheless, I highly recommend the film.
