Salam, So I decide to sneak out and go see Munich on my own. I went there solo, I was like it's Monday and no one would be there, IT WAS PACKED!!! The way I saw the movie is that it was SURPRISINGLY balanced! And for the first time it tackled the true essence of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict without taking sides. He for the first time humanized the targets (Palestinians) and showed them as the real people they are, mind you, the book (vengeance) that the movie is based on was published in 1984 and talks about some of those Palestinian targets have nothing to do with Munich. The movie also talks about how there are no saints in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, both have their hands filled with blood, "Israel wasn't created by being nice"(a quote from the movie). And at one point they were arguing should they shoot the bodyguards or not, because their targets are the 11 men only, and Steve(one of the assassins) said nothing matter to me but the Jewish blood, while others in his group argued that is the unethical thing to do. I'm so happy to find such just and balanced movie created by the most famous Jewish director of all time. I always Liked Spielberg, but now I have a much higher respect for the man. Check his site out:Spielbergfilms On a totally different note: check this TRAILER out (American Dreamz). Salam
