    Off the Shelves

    Recently, I found a pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel DVD documentary, "Jenin, Jenin," in my city of White Plains, N.Y., library, produced by an Arab organization ("Libraries: The New Mideast Battlefront," Jan. 20). I assume it was distributed countrywide to libraries.

  • Seven Thumbs Up

    By Christine Pelisek

    December 29, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    An unscientific, random sample of moviegoers who turned out for the new Steven Spielberg's film, "Munich," overwhelmingly liked what they saw. All of these patrons saw the film at the ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood.

    Slow going at first; 40 minutes longer than it had to be. A...

  • ‘Munich’: The Missing Conversation

    By Rabbi Marvin Hier

    December 22, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    For me, the most telling moment in Steven Spielberg's "Munich" was the final scene, when the young, distraught Mossad team leader,

    Avner, takes a walk along the East River with his Israeli case officer, Ephraim, the man who supervised his mission. With the World Trade Center as a...

  • He’s Got the Look

    When Sam Feuer was a boy, he fell in love with "E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial" -- and with performing -- since he lived as an outsider in two cultures. Born in America to Israeli parents, the family moved to Israel when Sam was 9.

    "Since I was a kid, one of my dreams was to be in a...

  • ‘Munich’ Portrays Real World Issues

    By David A. Lehrer

    December 22, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    In recent days, several pundits have criticized "Munich," the new film by director Steven Spielberg and screenwriter Tony Kushner, for drawing a "moral equivalency between the Israeli assassins and their targets -- both explicitly ... and implicitly." Furthermore, they argue that it...

  • Judgment on ‘Munich’

    By Tom Tugend

    December 15, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    "Munich" ranks as one of those movies that has been analyzed by so many and, so far, seen by so few. All the buzz and fuss isn't about the quality, pacing, acting, music and cinematography of the movie. After all, "A Steven Spielberg Film" carries the imprimatur of the Hollywood gold...

  • ‘Munich’—a Risky Move for Spielberg

    By Ivor Davis

    December 1, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    The billboards for Steven Spielberg's new film "Munich," which opens Dec. 23, will soon be sprouting on buses, benches and boulevards around the nation. The image is simple and stark. A lone man sits gloomily in a dark, heavily draped hotel room, his body sparely illuminated by the...

  • Shocktoberfest

    By Adam Wills

    The plan was innocuous enough: Meet up with some Jewish Journal colleagues for Oktoberfest at The Phoenix Club, a German cultural center in Anaheim that features a banquet hall, a restaurant and bar, as well as country club-like grounds. We were looking for something truly authentic...

  • Spectator - Spielberg Keeps ‘Munich’ a Secret

    By Tom Tugend

    July 21, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    In an honor-laden career, Steven Spielberg has never played for higher emotional and political stakes than in his upcoming film on the aftermath of the 1972 massacre of 11 Israeli Olympic athletes by Palestinian Black September terrorists.

    The customary secrecy surrounding...

  • Twenty Hours in Munich

    By Tom Tugend

    August 29, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    The Germans, desperate to erase memories of the Nazi-tainted 1936 Olympics in Berlin, billed the 1972 Games as "The Happy Olympics." By the time the international sportsfest ended, it went down in the history books as "The Munich Massacre."

    The turning point came in the early morning...

  • A Journey into the Heart of Darkness

    By Michael D. Braun

    April 8, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    There was something haunting about taking the train. The aged boxcars on a parallel track seemed frozen in time. I quieted my thoughts. After all, the train was a necessary evil. This bitter irony was not lost on me as the train sped from Munich to Dachau on probably the very same...
