ISRAEL: Foxtrot (2017)

There’s a world of really good Israeli movies, and boy, do they go hard. Foxtrot starts with a family being informed that their young son, serving his mandatory military service, has been killed in action. I won’t spoil the movie but it turns out that’s not exactly what happened. It’s an intense movie with some dark humour to it, and focuses hard on grief and trauma, both for individuals and in Israeli society (it also earned the ire of Israel’s Culture Minister for its portrayal of the IDF).
