I just finished watching Spielberg's 2005 film, Munich. Political thriller, action movie, tense drama, emotional confusion, this movie's got it all. I have to admit, I've never thought much about how Israel responded to the Munich Massacre, but this movie was very thought-provoking. The movie was nominated for five Academy Awards, but somehow didn't get even one. I guess I'm not that surprised - I don't think it has mainstream appeal. I recommend it.
