Entertainment: The reviews are coming in and so far not so good. When I heard this movie was being made and Tony Kushner was attached to it I thought. it was going to turn out to be liberal nonsense wrapped in fence straddling. I see I was correct.
|"There is an entirely fictional scene in the movie in which Avner and his Palestinian opposite number meet and talk calmly, with the latter getting a chance to make his case for the creation of a homeland for his people. That scene means everything to Kushner and Spielberg. "The only thing that's going to solve this is rational minds, a lot of sitting down and talking until you're blue in the gills," says Spielberg. Without that exchange, "I would have been making a Charles Bronson movie--good guys vs. bad guys and Jews killing Arabs without any context. And I was never going to make that picture."|
Time magazine also flat out lies with this statement.
|Indeed, since June, when filming began, the movie has been surrounded by rumors, criticism and suggestions that Spielberg was too pro-Israel to make a fair movie on the subject.|
This is a cover story becaue the fear has never been that Speilberg is too pro-Israel, but too pro-peacenik. NYTIMES in as the Jews are doubting "bad guys".
In July, the Telegraph reported that Spielberg didn't even contact the Israeli government for info or reach out to former agents
. In September Reuters stunningly reported
that the mastermind behind the Munich bombings(again why is he still alive?
) and Mossad veterans questioned Spielberg sources and Spielberg confirmed the direction everyone feared it was going.
|He has vowed that "Munich" will be sensitive to all sides.
"Viewing Israel's response to Munich through the eyes of the men who were sent to avenge that tragedy adds a human dimension to a horrific episode that we usually think about only in political or military terms," Spielberg said in a statement.|
Spielberg has joined with Ridley Scott
who made Kingdom of Heaven and Black Hawk Down
to make movies to push their liberal views using real events as a backdrop.
