This Movie Could Put An Insomniac To Sleep
This movie is perhaps the slowest and most boring film I have ever seen. It is a pretentious attempt by Amos Gitai to remake Israel's national birth myth in his slow and artistic style. However, this time he fails miserably. From the opening scene that takes 10 minutes before anyone even opens their mouth the the closing speeches that are so melodramatic that they don't at all fit in with the otherwise painfully realistic piece, the movie is a disaster all the way through. In addition to its plodding style and one dimensional characters the movie is rife with factual errors. It mention fictional ghetto revolt, depicts the British army as a weak and unmotivated school marching band that speaks in American accents and seems to condense an entire year of war and struggle into one day. This movie is both a horrible depiction of Israeli history and a disastrous piece of entertainment and I would only recommend it to those who are in desperate need for a long sleep. Please do not see this embarrassment of a movie unless forced to by a man with a large gun.
Sallah Shabati (1964)
It's in Hebrew
This movie is in Hebrew and the subtitles blend in with the background, so, I am not quite sure what actually happened in this movie but it looked funny. Also, sometimes the characters spoke and the subtitles did not even come up. But, aside from that, Sallah Shabati was hilarious and I recommend it to all of you who can speak Hebrew and understand "Milot Groniot" because that is how Sallah speaks and it is difficult to understand. Here was my favourite scene:- Frieda: Mr. Shabati, we live in the 20th century now Sallah: I live in a Maabara Frieda: The 20th century is not a place to live Sallah: Neither is a Maabara This is just a preview of the hilarity factor of this movie. See Sallah Shabati for a good laugh and a half.
