"Waltz With Bashir isn't only a harrowing anti-war plea, it is also an eloquent and deeply moving argument that it is critical to never forget human atrocity, lest the past be repeated." - Miami Herald
"It is personal filmmaking of the highest order, recognized with an Academy Award nomination for best foreign film." - Chigaco Tribune
"The images of war that Folman and his chief illustrator, David Polonsky, conjure up have a feverish, infernal beauty. Dreams and reality jumble together." - Newsweek
