Post-Zionism in Hollywood

Brian Britt, Professor of Religious Studies at Virginia Tech, has written an article for the Dallas News which analyzes two new movies about Israelis.  Both films, the American comedy You Don’t Mess With the Zohan and the Israeli drama Restless, despite being very different types of films, depict Israelis who find fulfillment in the United States.  Britt points out that both films deal with the issue of Post-Zionism, but neither raises the issue of Judaism.  The article is a cross between a movie review and a political piece.  Interesting.
