fauda

Ian’s Netflix picks:

Fauda. Imagine The Wire set in Ramallah. Israeli cop series praised for its portrayal of Palestinian daily life, with the London Times saying it “may make Israelis like Hamas.” Co-lead Hisham Suleiman has been lauded for his sympathetic terrorist. In Hebrew and Arabic with English subtitles.

Captain America: Civil War. Cap vs. Ironman is uninteresting despite the actors’ charisma, but the Black Panther and the new Spider-Man are great, and the airport fight is a model of coherent multi-superhero action.

Way of the Dragon. The only Chuck Norris Fact worth knowing is that Bruce Lee kicks his hairy ass in the great Coliseum fight.

Ian’s Amazon Prime picks:

Day of the Wolves. Obscure and very low-budget but extremely clever 1971 made-for-TV heist film that clearly influenced Tarantino. Jan Murray is great as the mastermind.
