1. SYMPATHIZE WITH THE VILLAINS

In the new film Hell or High Water, two brothers – one a straitlaced divorced father trying to make a better life for his son, and the other a short-tempered ex-con with a loose trigger finger – plan to rob branch after branch of the bank that is foreclosing on their family land. Vengeance seems to be theirs until they find themselves in the cross-hairs of a relentless, foulmouthed Texas Ranger looking for one last victory before his retirement. With Chris Pine, Ben Foster, Jeff Bridges.

Guerrero’s rich and exciting choreography combines traditional and modern flamenco. The Sins of Passage is a dramatic, thrilling and sensational show.

“Hatalush” (The Rootless Character), a new group exhibition at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, focuses on the itinerant character, which first appeared in Hebrew literature a century ago and still frequents it today. The featured works, mostly by young Israeli artists, unfold in the light of this literary figure whose chronicles and contours encapsulated and formulated the topical issues of its time.

Joining the adventure is Hap’s unlikely buddy Leonard Pine, an openly gay black Vietnam vet with a bad temper. Soon enough, the simple get-rich-quick scheme snowballs into gory mayhem.
