Munich oh Munich

Another article popped onto AlQabas newspaper. A cinema/movie "analyst", okay... laid out what she thought of the movie. To her it was BS. Well goody for you.

Funny thing is, she was moreover protective then perceptive. She should read my late entry. Esem 3ala mosama, 3awa6ef, is the name of the writer. Her emotions overhauled her maybe.
I'm just saying what I think, since I did see the ending message was ANTI-TERRORISM, on a humanatarian level, and not "against" Palastineans, as she put it.

People think differently, and that's good.

i havent seen munich yet, but i would imagine that the whole message was anti-terrorism.

i wonder what that reviewer would think of paradise now which i just watched last week.

the movie wasnt "anti-palestine" or "anti-islam" .. but that doesnt mean it wasnt pro-zionist or pro-israeli-cause

sure, it showed that the jew was a 'human' with 'feelings' (final scenes, redemption?, talking to the israeli official etc) but that's the writers' POV,, actually, it's the ONGOING sentiment in 'the west' (wherever that is heh) .. so why not write abt THAT

there was a good (quite just) scene between "Ali" and Bana (forget the character's name) .. but the sad fact is that there wasnt much else in movie except that scene that really 'addressed' the 'real issue'

good film, but no way near a political statement simply because its a hollywood flick regardless of who director or actors were

Pretty quick comments.

Welcome skunk, thanks for dropping by.

7ayak temetwir, lol I'm just not putting it on direct, since I don't want to be a movie spoiler. But yeah, it's when Avner gets it straight, that terrorism is not the answer, and he didn't make anything better.

Yeah... the only scene about "arabs" being presented in any "quiet" manner, was on the staircase... with the 3omani people? Yeah.

As for a political statement. It depends on what's the definition for that. Movies are movies.
Atleast some people who would otherwise have nothing to do with politics, would come across this.
