    Steven Spielberg Links Munich to 9/11

    By kyle | October 5, 2017

    He wouldn’t admit it at the time, but Steven Spielberg is finally admitting that the final shot of “Munich” – the Twin Towers in the distance — was meant to warn us that tracking down the Munich massacre’s perpetrators helped set the stage for 9/11. More here.

      Spielberg unfortunately suffers from liberalism, a very dangerous mental disorder. If it wasn’t for revenge and war, his grandparents would be lampshades.

      Munich, what a wasted opportunity. A great story, great actors, and some very tense and emotional scenes. It should’ve been a masterpiece. But that screenplay by Tony Kushner and its in-your-face leftist moral equivalencies is pure cringe.

      These people in Hollywood are hell-bent on making people HATE movies, and indirectly, Hollywood itself.

      May this turkey go right to the $1.00 rental bins of America.

      It is a nice retrospective of his body of work and will be handy as an obit piece someday. He espouses the horrors of divorce yet never explains what killed his own marriage the first time round.

      Yeah, he has never offered reflections on his own personal life as far as I know.
