Friday specials:

DEFENDING MUNICH
Here’s a forceful, well-composed defense of Steven Spielberg’s Munich, which I think is his most restrained, mature, and challenging film since… oh… 1987’s Empire of the Sun. (It’s at Salon, so if you don’t subscribe, just click and watch the brief advertisement so you can get access to the whole article.) This one’s going in my Top Ten of 2005.
