Lebanon ★★★

Didn't really convince me from the off. The scope device was pretty lame from the start and didn't get any better. It felt like an excuse for some really heavy handed reaction shots, and I was glad to see that there seemed to be less of it later.

As for the guys in the tank - I found it stretching credibility to have them so casual and inept - even accounting for their virgin status.

The threads of stories about each character were started and then dropped throughout. The relationship with the commander developed well, then petered out, and when the prisoner was introduced he was then pretty much ignored.

It all felt pretty aimless in the end.
