Wow, this movie looks freakin' good. If you liked The Hurt Locker then you'll most likely want to go and check this movie out. Lebanon is set entirely inside of a tank during the First Lebabon War in 1982. The film looks like an incredibly intense war thriller, and I'm looking forward to seeing it when it comes out on August 13th. Unfortunately it's only getting a limited release.
The First Lebanon War - June, 1982. A lone tank is dispatched to search a hostile town that has already been bombarded by the Israeli Air Force. What seems to be a simple mission gradually spins out of control. Shmuel the gunner, Assi the commander, Herzl the loader and Yigal the driver are the tank's crew, four 20-something boys who have never fought in a war and are now operating a killing machine. Though trying to remain brave, the boys are pushed to their mental limits as they struggle to survive in a situation they cannot contain, and try not to lose their humanity in the chaos of war.
The movie was written and directed by Israeli filmmaker Samuel Maoz. Check out the trailer below and hit us up with your thoughts!
