Wondering why times are missing?


Steven Spielberg helms this true-life tale of a Mossad agent (Eric Bana) who (along with a team of expert killers) tracked down a group of Palestinian terrorists responsible for the assassination of 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympics. Shot with an amazing eye for period detail, the film mixes typical political thriller elements with a more neutral rumination on the never-ending aftereffect of Middle East violence and retaliation. Technically, it's a superb piece, but the lengthy film's lack of clear-cut morality leaves the characters swimming in limbo some of the time. 164 minutes
