Oscars By The Handful

According to Roger Friedman's review, Munich is the top film of the year. Of course, he appears to be judging this within the film industry, not as a serious statement of purpose.
Spielberg, in fact, seems like he's taken a page out of Steven Soderbergh and George Clooney's playbook. He's outdone "Traffic" and "Syriana" at the same time.

If it weren't based on a historic tragedy, you would say that "Munich" was a better version of the "Mission: Impossible" movies. It's hard to put the facts aside, but if you do, "Munich" is very good entertainment.
???? Mere entertainment? But I thought Spielberg wanted to help make peace?
