Can you say cryto-Zionist? A movie that’s supposed to show a “balanced” view clearly casts the Israeli assassins as the moral agents in the film. And though they are punished for what they do, they also show remorse and doubt — unlike their Palestinian victims, who, while appearing as decent people in face to face interactions, never know any remorse for (or question) killing Israelis. Yep, one more version of “it’s primitive, they’ll just keep killing each other.” Disappointing.
Mise-en-scene was good, though. Not so much the establishing shots as the insides of rooms.
