Clean Sweep

Based on Limor Nachmias's best-selling novel Tweedle'dee, this slick Israeli police thriller (2000) emulates both Quentin Tarantino and Elmore Leonard with its numerous plot twists and double-crosses and its decidedly amoral collection of criminals, eccentrics, and cops. Like Tarantino, director Oded Davidoff mixes comedy, intense violence, and moments of outrageous sexism in this story of a murderous crime lord (Gal Zaid) who runs afoul of an attractive if slightly neurotic undercover agent (Yael Hadar). At times the heroine seems more obsessed with finding the perfect orgasm than with bringing the villain to justice, yet the film may offer enough cheap thrills to keep you entertained for 90 minutes.
