Avenge But One Of My Two Eyes
Israel/France 2005, 100 min.
I need to come clean: I’m not at all familiar with the work of Avi Mograbi. So I don’t know if it’s true, but somehow I imagine him to be an ex-TV cameraman who has become so frustrated with the banality of Israeli TV news that he grabbed his DV camera and decided to start making his own films. At least there seems to be a freshness and a festering frustration behind his filmmaking that is both convention-defying and utterly compelling.
