Movie to watch: Waltz with Bashir (animated Israeli anti-war documentary)

Waltz with Bashir, ex teenage soldier Ari Folman’s attempt to put together pieces of suppressed memories from his possible participation in e.g. a massacre during the Lebanon War of the early eighties, seems like an important movie. From Times:

“… the film’s most damning moment is reserved for the then Israeli Minister of Defence, one Ariel Sharon. An interviewee recalls that when he informed the minister in a late-night phone call that a massacre was suspected, Sharon said “Thank you for bringing it to my attention” and promptly went back to sleep.”
