Rage and Glory

Available on iTunes, Pluto TV, Prime Video
Eddie the Butcher is an avowed Anarchist and member of the Stern Gang (AKA the Lehi, “Fighters for the Freedom of Israel”). In winter of 1984, he is sent to Jerusalem to assassinate a senior British officer. The Jerusalem Stern Gang cell is a rag tag collection of eccentric individuals, and internal strife dooms the initial operation to failure. One member of the cell is caught, sentenced to death, and hanged. The cell seems to be on the brink of collapse. There is strong fear of an informer in the ranks of the cell. But the Butcher, the consummate existentialist, refuses to give up. At the end, against all odds, the cell members embark on a daring and complex operation, in which the participants have little chance of survival. The last twenty minutes of the film are conducted almost wordlessly - and bring to a climax and extraordinary cinematic experience.
