Spielberg’s MunichBY: 01.27.2006
On Stephen Spielberg’s Munich and Jonathan Tobin’s Exponent.: Letters from Richard Bank, Michael Wakely and Julie Rottenberg
Dan Rottenberg’s review of Munich had me laughing out loud and at the same time provided food for thought. You’re great, but you are also a bit of a masochist. Still reading Jonathan Tobin? I haven’t read him in years (nor anything else in the Jewish Exponent, for that matter!).
Full points on your well chosen words on Munich— It looked like Day of the Jackal meets Black Sunday— and about the Inquirer: If they closed their doors tonight, no one would notice. I wish you and all concerned the very best for this very good idea.
Where’s the conflict?
I couldn’t agree more with you on thinking Munich was utterly disappointing. My main problem was the feeling that I should have been moved, or feeling some kind of emotion throughout, and instead I felt nothing (and I felt bad about feeling nothing, on top of the feeling nothing, y’know?).
