Monday night I went to the Encino Town Center movie theater (they were happy to let me in right away) to see "Waltz With Bashir."
This movie, nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Picture is completely fascinating.
It's a documentary about former Israeli soldiers still haunted by Israel's war with Lebanon in the 80s.
But here's the twist -- it's an animated film. In fact it's only Israel's second-ever animated feature-length film.
Many interviews are depicted via animation as are images of war. There's something about not wondering "how they got that shot" makes this experience all the more gripping.
