Highly Suspect Reviews: Foxtrot

0 Submitted by on Mon, 09 April 2018, 10:25

From Israeli director Samuel Maoz (who did the tremendously great and criminally underseen Lebanon all the way back in 2009) comes Foxtrot, a different kind of movie from his last but one no less startling and decidedly also rather anti-war. Divided into a triptych structure, Foxtrot tells the story of a family split by the news of the death of their son only to discover that everything is not exactly as they thought. Featuring some of the more stunning and imaginative cinematography you’re likely to see this year, this is a must-see…for those of you lucky enough to live near a theater that’ll actually play small foreign films coming out of Israel. Listen to the review with Chris, Miguel, and Michael right here.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
