This past week launched the release of Waltz with Bashir, a film festival darling that has been earning rave reviews. Waltz runs the gamut of genres being animated, foreign and a documentary, but don’t let any of those labels scare you away from seeing this film, which deals with the first Lebanon War of the early eighties.

The film centers around Ari, whose recurring nightmares of being chased by 26 dogs lead him into believing that they share a connection with his Israeli Army mission in the war. As he starts to investigate this period of his life, which he has no recollection of, his memory starts to come back. The film is filled with haunting images of horror and beauty. Director Ari Folman has won many critics prizes this year and is also nominated for a Golden Globe.
