Spielberg's Munich Movie

I didn't quite expect to have an opinion to share on this but ....

The trailer is extremely powerful. The reviews have only made me want to see it more. The news about the movie and the public's reaction are very interesting.

See the trailer.

Remember, the movie is according to Spielberg, inspired by the true events so don't go taking it as a documentary. It is STILL Hollywood. Schindler's List may have been as close to a historical documentary in a movie format as you are likely to see but this is a different kettle of fish entirely. Both former Mossad and PLO people have said as much as well.

The best thing about this movie is that I am willing to accept that it is good not because it is good as a work of art but because both sides have something to complain about. See another article that puts it into words better than I can.

By the way, calling Spielberg Anti-Semetic as some have done is just one of the most hilarious things I have ever heard.
