Waltz with Bashir

Written by Shekhar Kapur

Probably the best film this year. If the film was in English, it would be a serious contender for the Oscar. It left me moved and shattered at the same time. It is psychological, political and mythical at the same time. And about our modern day politics. It is animation, but it draws you so deep into the characters that you forget that you are watching an animation film. You find yourself searching for expression and meaning in the faces of characters as if they were real.

I am told some of that was done by filming actors and then turning them into animation. I don’t know. Whatever it was, it was a the most innovative form of Cinema I have seen recently.
