A blistering work of meta filmmaking.

As it begins to explain more and more about what drives its leading character, the film becomes less and less interesting and the stridently melodramatic finale, as well as being highly unlikely in ordinary plot terms, feels a little bit self-exculpatory.

With Ahed’s Knee, Nadav Lapid plays a game with alter egos that’s at once canny and frustrating.
