What is surprising about Israeli cinema...

...is the fact that the local populous does not give rat's ass about it.

There had been HUGE influx of all sorts of cinematographic talent in the seventies, and later, mainly from the USSR, where fine film making had reached unquestionably high levels. And yet virtually none of it got any traction in their new land. Some actors spent a few years banging their collective heads against the wall, then went back to Russia, where their names and talents were in demand. Many began visiting places like NYC, Phila, Boston and LA, giving performances to the local immigrant communities, often at rinky-dink joints, and for peanuts.

I guess - just different priorities... but the net result is quite sad - a cinema that is behind that of many developing countries.
