Steven Spielberg's 'Munich'

After seeing Google searches for Annie Proulx ramp up following Brokeback Mountain's release I have noticed a lot of readers arriving at my article The year is '72 after Googling the 1972 Olympics in Munich.

The explanation is Steven Spielber's new film Munich which was released in the States on 23rd December, and hits the screens in the UK on 27th January. It starts with 15 minutes of archive film which set the scene with the kidnapping of the Israeli athletes and the terrible events that followed - which I described in my article. The film then follows a Mossad agent as he tracks the Palestinian terrorists responsible. Critical reaction is good, and Munich has been described as Spielberg's best film since Schindler's List. Audience reaction seems to be less enthusiastic, possibly due to Spielberg overload.

Any reader's reviews welcome. Meanwhile On An Overgrown Path seems, once again, to have been blogging in the right place at the right time.
