LEBANON (MA15+)

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Weekly Preview -

Mad­man

★★★★ Set in­side an army tank on the first day of the Is­rael-Lebanon war in 1982, Lebanon is best likened to a Das Boot on wheels. Four novice Is­raeli sol­diers are

cooped up and con­fused when all hell breaks loose around them. Rarely has a film so in­tensely con­veyed the cat­a­strophic shock that comes when a

sol­dier is on the bat­tle­field for the first time. De­serv­ing win­ner of the 2009 Grand

Prize in Venice.
