War-time guilt and the role of memory in keeping that guilt alive as well as ultimately providing catharsis is nothing new war stories.
Bruce+mccandless - AbeBooks
Classics like Apocalypse Now and The Thin Red Line inhabit a similar cinematic terrain, but they were not made by a participant, nor were they animated. And these two details are where the power of Waltz with Bashir lies. Early in the film, after Folman listens to a former army colleague describe the dream about the dogs, he slips into his own reverie, and realises that most of his memories are actually surreal dreams of dread. So, he interviews other soldiers who were with him at the time, as well as journalists, political commentators and psychiatrists.
Every new conversation throws up more facts and Folman tries to piece together those traumatic years of his life. Sounds like Apocalypse Now?
Most interviewees adopt a bland, matter-of-fact tone when they reminisce, but you can see the shame and pain in their eyes. Animation allows Folman a degree of vividness, irony and narrative poise which might not have been possible with live action. Because of the medium, you can see his memories warp and disintegrate in places, and come together with powerful clarity in others.opcomsulovet.ml
The Band Celebrate 40th Anniversary of ‘The Last Waltz’ With Expanded Reissue
Constantly evolving animation techniques have enabled Folman to masterfully evoke the disorientation of war. And in the final scene, as the film cuts away to actual footage of the massacre, you realise anew how such scenes could have traumatised him for life. Waltz with Bashir is a film as relentless in its pursuit of truth as a pack of wild dogs.
