Restored in 2018 by the Jerusalem Cinematheque and the Israel Film Archive, Rage and Glory is considered by critics the best Israeli film ever made. The film tells the story of an avowed anarchist, Eddy the Butcher, and a hitman who is sent to Jerusalem to plot the assassination of a senior British officer. Eddy’s arrival creates tension within the already troubled group as the British counter-terrorist operatives are closing in. In speaking about the debate over the film, Nesher stated, “If you take the controversy over the 2017 film Foxtrot and multiply it by a thousand, this is the magnitude of the reaction in 1984.” In English and Hebrew with English subtitles. Contains mature content.
