Free Zone (2005)

After the initial early promise of its opening 15 minutes or so, the film resorts to spinning its wheels, then driving down dead-end alleys, and then plowing head-long into exactly the sort of heavy-handed didactic symbolism that gives me fits and has me reaching for the remote.

The first shot of Amos Gitai's new film is arresting. Natalie Portman cries for eight minutes.
