Mazal Tov to Joseph Cedar, the talented Israeli director, on his election to membership in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. With a total of four feature films to his credit, two have made the final cut of five nominees for the Oscar in the foreign language film category.
They are the gritty “Beaufort,” based on the New York-born director’s own Lebanon War experiences, and this year’s “Footnote,” probing the rivalry of two Talmudic scholars who are also father and son.
There is no doubt in my mind that one day Cedar will be raising up his own Oscar statuette.
