He grew up in Jerusalem, served in the army, and studied at Tel Aviv University's School of Film and Television. He is openly gay and many of his films contain themes of homosexuality, as well as the effect the Israeli–Palestinian conflict has on interpersonal relationships.

Fox and his partner, Gal Uchovsky, have a long-term relationship. They are also professional collaborators, Uchovsky, a screenwriter, producer and journalist, is involved in much of the scriptwriting for Fox's movies.

His 2002 film Yossi & Jagger is a portrayal of the love between two young Jewish military men while completing their mandatory national service. In 2004 film Walk on Water, he takes on the thorny topics of racism/discrimination and confronting the Nazi past of two young upper class Germans. Lior Ashkenazi plays a Mossad assassin under cover as a tour guide. In 2006 film The Bubble, he asks the big question: What is love? as the film follows three young Tel Aviv residents, a female political activist and her two gay roommates, one of whom (the same actor from Yossi & Jagger) falls in love with a Palestinian (who also appears as a waiter) while on border guard duty as part of his national military service.
