      Audience Member Oscar nominated foreign film from Israel about a corrupt prison that holds both Arabs and Jews. It focuses mainly on two cells, one that has about 10 Jews and 1 Arab while the other cell has about 10 Arabs and 1 Jew. The basic meaning of the film is far from subtle but it's still pretty well done. A good ensemble and it's got a good pace to it. Plus there's a pretty catchy song that plays a key part in the film. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
