David Foster Wallace über Sportler-Interviews September 19, 2012 | 02:06 pm

This stuff is stupefying, and yet it also seems to be inevitable, maybe even necessary. The baritones in network blazers keep coming up after games, demanding of physical geniuses these recombinant strings of dead clichés, strings that after a while start to sound like a strange kind of lullaby, and which of course no network would solicit and broadcast again and again if there weren‘t a large and serious audience out here who find the banalities right and good. As if the emptiness in these athletes‘ descriptions of their feelings confirmed something we need to believe.

Trailer: Follow Me: The Yoni Netanyahu Story June 17, 2012 | 12:37 pm

Die Dokumentation erzählt die Lebensgeschichte des Bruders von Benjamin Netanyahu. Er verlor sein Leben bei der Operation Entebbe. Durch seine Rolle, als Anführer der Befreiung der jüdischen Geiseln aus den Händen von PFLP und Revolutionären Zellen, wurde er zu einem der größten Helden Israels. So beschreibt ihn der Regisseur in der Pressemappe folgendermaßen:

Unlike many army heroes, Yoni Netanyahu was a scholar, writer, and poet. He hated war—but loved his country. He would do anything for its survival, including sacrificing a promising academic career to becom e an elite soldier. Everything Yoni did, he did “all the way.” This was the mentality that made him into a war hero and vaunted Special Forces commander. But it also separated him from the woman he loved and destroyed his marriage. Yoni tried unsuccessfully to find a balance between a civilian life and the life of a soldier —and this flaw hurt the people closest to him.
