Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Most everything ... in "Foxtrot" feeds into a singular, aching illustration of fate at its cruelest.
Fresh: Israeli filmmaker Samuel Maoz's strange, engaging "Foxtrot" offsets tragedy with a significant entertainment factor.
Fresh: Maoz is a director of gallows humor and creamy visual control, and the movie at times dances along the edge of magical realism only to pull the characters and the audience back with a jolt.
Fresh: With a fluent mix of irony and sincerity, Maoz interrogates - gently, but with unwavering insistence - the rituals of a country mired in the moral contradictions of occupation and its own defensive crouch.
