Ajami

Two directors (one Palestinian, one Israeli) shot this Tel Aviv-set drama on location with nonprofessional actors and no script. The results are raw and real but unrelentingly grim. The ensemble drama intertwines a bunch of characters and a number of storylines--all set around a poor, heavily segregated neighborhood. It's a little like a Martin Scorsese crime pic with religious hatred added to the mix. In Arabic and Hebrew with English subtitles. 120 minutes
