"MUNICH"

I watched the movie "Munich" on Saturday, which was unfavorably reviewed by Roger Simon. I'd say it's not great, but good, and the meme that it's just another Hollywood-liberal poke at the war on terror seems unfair, even if the main character is disillusioned in the end. The Israeli assassins seem human, even to some extent sympathetic; one is horrified by their dilemma, not them. A Palestinian terrorists' ode to the "home" that his people have lost is moving. I found the portrayal of a prosperous-sleepy Europe, in the shadows of which other peoples are fighting their fierce wars, poignant.
