LEBANON: A Movie Recommendation
"June, 1982 - The First Lebanon War. A lone tank and a paratroopers platoon are dispatched to search a hostile town - a simple mission that turns into a nightmare. The four members of a tank crew find themselves in a violent situation that they cannot contain. Motivated by fear and the basic instinct of survival, they desperately try not to lose themselves in the chaos of war."
Think DAS BOOT, but it takes place in a tank.
This movie was excellent. The story, film technique, and huge amounts of tension and suspence, all added up to a great experience. This does have subtitles, but that has never been a problem for me. After a few minutes, I dont even realize I am reading them. I give it 5 STARS, and a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
