Worth Watching - Sept 22: Ari Folman's Waltz with Bashir Trailer
Sony Pictures Classics has premiered the trailer for the Israeli animated film Waltz with Bashir. This film has been playing at tons of film festivals over the last few months and gaining tremendous buzz. Waltz with Bashir follows Ari as he interviews old friends and comrades in order to remember what it was like fighting in an Israeli Army mission during the first Lebanon War in the early 1980's. I unfortunately missed seeing it at two separate festivals but didn't hear enough positive feedback from trusted friends initially, and now I regret missing it. This trailer looks fantastic and should be an amazing introduction for those entirely unfamiliar with this film. Anyone else interesting in this based on the trailer?

The film first premiered at Cannes Film Festival earlier this year and has since gone on to play at numerous film festivals. Sony Pictures Classics has picked up the rights and will be premiering Waltz with Bashir in limited theaters starting on December 26th later this year.
