Director - Ari Folman
Genre - Animation/Biography/War
Not so much an 'animated picture' in the traditional sense but a work of cinema employing the technique of animation to express itself better and more completely. By going the 2D route instead of using real sets and real actors as is the norm for scripts of such nature, the visual ambience of this film takes on a really refreshing quality. Based on the real war experiences of the director himself, the story is about how he attempts to retrieve his lost memories associated with those turbulent years. One of the strongest statements on war we've ever witnessed, it opened our eyes to the dark side of human nature and the unlimited avenues of visual style cinema may utilize. Prepare yourself for a deep analytical look into the psychosis of an average man thrown into unwarranted, uncalled for violence.
