Best of 2014, midway
Here's a bold statement: 2014 is looking like a pretty damn good year for movies so far. We've had a few strong ones in a row (2011, 2012 and 2013 were all overflowing with goodness), but a little less than halfway through this year, and the discerning moviegoer has been spoiled with choices.

Zero Motivation
Satirical comedies set in the military aren’t aplenty in cinema.

Even more uncommon, perhaps never-before-seen, is an Israeli military movie told from a female point of view as written and directed by a female filmmaker.
