6. Joe + Belle

Joe + Belle
Busk Films
This Israeli film is a dark comedy of falling in love and disposing of a body. Set in the violent region of Sderot, combines a story of love and violence in a way that manages to almost come across as a romantic comedy. From AfterEllen.com “For a comedy touted as darkly as this one, the package is surprisingly sweet and romantic.”
