Representing Israel at the 2018 Oscars

Rated 100% on Rotten Tomatoes

A brilliant movie, one that is so rich thematically, visually, musically and emotionally, that one viewing is not enough to begin to absorb all it has to offer.” – Hannah Brown, Jerusalem Post

Not content to merely confront the unspeakable grief of parents who lose a child, Maoz uses the film’s tripartite structure to encompass a devastating litany of Israeli attributes that run the gamut from machismo to racism to a past subverted by the Holocaust and then back again to grief.   Just as no novel can tackle a mother’s fear of learning her soldier son is dead without being compared to David Grossman’s stunning “To the End of the Land,” so no film will be able to deal with a similar subject without being weighed against FOXTROT.   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.” – Jay Weissberg, Variety

Foxtrot is an unclassifiable blend of black comedy, surrealism and socio-political drama that proves to be equal parts unflinching and unforgettable.” – Alistair Ryder, Film Inquiry

Language: Hebrew (English subtitles)

Length: 1 hr. 53 min.
