For The Nation


A scene in Munich,  where the “team” assembled to exact vengeance on the planners of the Munich massacre,  this romantic, serious music is playing as the men talk about “being assassins”;  the whole scene is shot with an air of “these are ordinary men about to do bad things”,  but these are “necessary” things;  things they have to “live with” because there is no other alternative.  Or is Spielberg going to portray this as a case of “political leadership” requiring “soldiers” to “do their duty”;  and the “human faces” of men who follow the orders “for country” and “for their fellow men” and “for Israel”? The latter is a blasphemy.  This not God’s people.  This is the way of the world. 

We shall see.  I am anticipating the latter portrayal.
