>’Munich,’ the Travesty
>I’m not planning on seeing this film. I’ve read many reviews and they all seem to say the same thing. Spielberg pretty much made the film to portray the Terrorists in a sympathetic manner.
Charles Krauthammer sums it up nicely in his review:
“…It is an axiom of filmmaking that you can only care about a character you know. In ‘Munich,’ the Israeli athletes are not only theatrical but historical extras, stick figures. Spielberg dutifully gives us their names — Spielberg’s List — and nothing more: no history, no context, no relationships, nothing. They are there to die…”
Bonus points for reading the whole thing.
