Foxtrot (2018)



Critic Consensus: Foxtrot uses topical themes to deliver a bruising sociopolitical statement that's equally effective taken simply as an absorbing, well-acted drama.

Movie Info

Michael and Dafna experience gut-wrenching grief when army officials show up at their home to announce the death of their son Jonathan. Michael becomes increasingly frustrated by overzealous mourning relatives and well-meaning army bureaucrats. While his sedated wife rests, Michael spirals into a whirlwind of anger only to experience one of life's unfathomable twists - a twist that can only be rivaled by the surreal military experiences of his son.

Critic Reviews for Foxtrot

All Critics (139) | Top Critics (34)

[Writer-director Samuel] Moaz is a daring, unpredictable storyteller, and his eccentric plot construction, which also takes into account the son's last days, turns an intimate emotional drama into a larger statement about fate and justice.

March 9, 2020 | Full Review…

A film full of mystery and switchbacks is resolved in resounding style.

Top Critic

Maoz definitely knows how to knock a film together, so fingers crossed that the window between this and his next one is a lot more narrow.

March 1, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Maoz creates a deadpan J'accuse, razor-edged and hugely original. The truth? It is unmissable.

February 27, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Before the retrospective letdown, there is an exhilarating kind of disorientation as we move from one narrative section to the next.

February 27, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's an extraordinary film, far from easy, ultimately thoughtful and hard to forget.
