Waltz away with honor
Israel's first animated feature, Waltz with Bashir, has taken the top honor at the National Society of Film Critics shindig. The award couldn't be timelier, as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict enters a new and dreadful phase. Other winners: Sean Penn for Milk, Sally Hawkins, Eddie Marsan, and Mike Leigh for Happy-Go-Lucky, and a newcomer to the yearly honor roll, Hanna Schygulla for The Edge of Heaven.
