i saw a preview for 'Munich' on saturday when i saw 'Syriana' (a good movie). it looks like a decent film. from what the reviews said about the message Spielberg, i would have to find out myself before i make any judgements.
Excellent review, Gindy, and I'm glad you addressed the issue of Tony Kushner's ideology where Israel is concerned. That alone should make us question Spielberg's motives in making this film. Why Tony Kushner when you're doing a film involving Israel? Why not just get Saeb Erekat.
Oops. Esther let me know that Gindy didn't write the review, but rather he posted parts of it. I just want to make sure we get our facts straight. After all, we wouldn't want to be like the mainstream media, would we?
Let me know what you think if you do go see it, DM.Rory... :) And I appreciate your Tony Kushner/Saeb Erekat analogy.Here's another interesting piece about Munich:http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/pages/ArticleNews.jhtml?itemNo=656432&contrassID=13&subContrassID=1&sbSubContrassID=0
Let me try that link again. Piece these together. Sorry.http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/pages/ArticleNews.jhtml?itemNo=656432&contrassID=13&subContrassID=1&sbSubContrassID=0
I have a bad feeling about this film.
Patrick, you should. To begin with the film is taken from a book that has no basis in fact. Then there's Tony Kushner, who thinks it's a bad idea that there's a State of Israel to begin with. And, of course, there's the question of how come nobody from Mossad was even aware of the fact that this movie was being made. Not exactly a recipe for a film that's going to make those Israeli commandos look like the heroes they really were.
