Harpur Cinema Presents ‘Foxtrot’ (Samuel Maoz – Israel – 2017)
With this triptych made of three connected stories with several surprising twists, Samuel Maoz delivers “a uniquely powerful work,” at times dreamlike, “often grimly funny,” with a “fascination with narrowing perspective tightly guiding the audience into the viewpoint of each character” (The Atlantic). From the oppressive setting of an apartment in Tel Aviv to a bleak checkpoint on the Northern border and its barracks sinking in the sand, from intrusive close-up shots to wide-angle shots of lunar landscape, the Israeli filmmaker designs perfectly bizarre environments of rare expressive force, filled with visual metaphors, meticulous framing, flashes of cruelty, glimmers of urgency and wit, all “arranged with such visionary boldness that it dares us to look away” (The Guardian).
