So much more than punk rock
Eek | Philadelphia, PA USA | 07/29/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Yes, you get a soundtrack that you can bang your head to. Yes, you get kids with spiky hair and spiky things through their body parts. But you also get so much more - commentary from a largely secular movement in a largely religious society, thoughts about militarism and resistance, personal stories about fallen friends... Liz Nord does a great job of sharing the fun and chaos of the punk scene in Israel along with the reality (and chaos) of the context which these punks are challenging with their lifestyle and their music. A keeper for any punk at heart."
Bold, realistic view of punk rock in Israel

"This was a powerful film, full of insights we are not often given the opportunity to see & hear. These thoughtful, sad, ironic comments come straight from the punk musicians and their fan base in Israel. Filmaker Liz Nord has an uncanny way of getting straight to the heart of the challenges these kids face when they turn 18 and are required by law to enter the army. Watching the kids try to follow their hearts & their consciences is a remarkable journey & Nord does a spectacular job of staying true to her mission of showing us their plight. Often heartbreaking as the musicians talk about their goals in life, their losses & their deep feelings about their country, this film is a must-see for anyone who has ever struggled with life-altering decisions."
