Munich



I just went to Fox studios with a friend of mine that works there and watched the movie directed by Steven Spielberg called Munich. It is set in the aftermath of the massacre of 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics, the story follows a secret Israeli squad assigned to track down and kill the 11 Palestinians suspected to have planned the Munich attack. The personal toll this mission of revenge takes on the team and the man who led it is right up there, but it is a BRILLIANT movie. If you have not seen it, I strongly recommend it. One of the better movies I have seen.

Fantastic! Thanks for the advice! I read the blurb for it and really wanted to see it, now I know it'll be well worth the money.

Aside from the bizarre, spittle flying, rape / breakdown scene...

Well that is true. That was a bit weird, but that was the last minute of the movie, so if you try to bypass that thought of that it was a great movie.

It equates Israelis seeking justice with terrorists... Seems like Spielberg's slipping in line with the moral relativists. I haven't seen it, and though I was told the action is impressive, the message clearly isn't.

Incidentally, I finally had time to respond to your opinion on a Conservative majority vs a Concervative minority, in Canada (http://centrerion.blogspot.com/2006_01_15_centrerion_archive.html - scroll down a tad). As you likely know, we canucks have elected a minority Conservative government. The Cabinet sucks though, and they're taking their sweet time returning to work. I'm going to post about the links between Harper's cabinet and his leadership campaign contributors in the meantime.
