"Waltz With Bashir," a groundbreaking animated documentary about the First Lebanon War, won the National Society of Film Critics' 2008 best picture award Saturday. Intense and inventive, "Waltz With Bashir" follows Israeli director and former soldier Ari Folman's efforts to recover his own lost memories about the Sabra and Shatila massacre during the war. It moves among interviews, dreams and flashbacks, all rendered in animation.
