At the time of writing, the results of Israel’s general election in September are still unknown but one thing is certain: Soviet-born, former Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman will find himself, yet again, in the position of a kingmaker, determining the future of the state as well as the fate of his ex-ally and friend, Benjamin Netanyahu. This absorbing documentary charts the outsider immigrant’s meteoric rise to the highest echelons of the Israeli establishment, and his success at changing it beyond recognition. A must-watch for those interested in Israel’s cultural and social sea change over the last four decades, and the perfect counterpart to King Bibi.
