Waltz with Bashir

Just watched the film Waltz with Bashir, Directed by Ari Folman. The Israeli film director cannot remember the horrors of the 1982 invasion of Lebanon. He interviews fellow veterans to reconstruct his own memories of his term of service in that conflict. The documentary film is animated really well with a Citizen Kane-style recounting of what happened during 1982 Lebanese war, in which the Israel Defence Forces invaded Lebanon after an assassination attempt against the Israel's ambassador to the United Kingdom. I will not say much more as this film looks at why Ari has no real memory of what happened in Lebanon. It is well worth a watch not only for the historical contents but also for the quality of the animation and illustration.
