A Well-Made And Meaningful Israeli Thriller
20 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In general I've been disappointed with Israeli cinema. Rather than giving sincere and insightful expressions of a country with such a heavy sociopolitical atmosphere, a land which underlies so much of the world's history and which has now been so quickly repopulated and rebuilt by a people who have achieved so much under the weight of hatred, exclusion, and genocide, most Israeli filmmakers have followed in the aimless and shallow footsteps of Hollywood trash and self-righteous American liberal con artists. The film "Kalevet," however, is an exception to the current trend of filmmaking in Israel and all the other countries of the world who are to some degree being culturally tainted by one of the worst things America has to offer, i.e., it's cinema. And interestingly enough, "Kalevet" manages to escape the Hollywood pattern by making use of one of it's most simple-minded conventions--the slasher film. By employing sophisticated directing, cinematography, editing, and a screenplay portraying morally complex characters and a narrative that serves as an insightful metaphor for Israeli society as well as a universal statement on the human condition, the creators of "Kalevet" have succeeded in doing what is usually more expected from filmmakers in the more eastern part of Asia, i.e., reinvent a usually meaningless Hollywood genre into something that is not simply entertaining but meaningful.
