From media blogger Ron Franscell at http://underthenews.blogspot.com ...

About "Munich" .... Is it a good film? Yes. It makes you think about the nature of good and evil, whether any culture has rights and superiority over any other -- including the right to kill innocents to induce terror or make a statement.

But is it a true film? The epigraph says it all: "Inspired by a true story." Unlike James Frey, the filmmakers don't say it's true ... then lie. They say up front it's a creative work that takes much/some of its material from actual events. And like Rachel Neuwirth says, you probably will never know where the reality and the fantasy intersect.

"Munich" -- and most other Hollywood fare -- probably shouldn't be shown in World History classrooms as an accurate depiction of real events. But it should be seen in the parallel universe of a movie theater, and truly contemplated. The message is rendered in light and shadow and sound, but it's relevant to the real world outside the theater.

I think our Best Films lists are fairly close this year, once one allows for the different films we saw over the year.
