One of the biggest lies Speilberg told is that Avner (the leader of the Israeli Mossad unit) moved to Brooklyn out of protest and torment over what he had been led to do.

What a bunch of hogwash. The real Avner lives in Israel today.

According to George Jonas, Avner moved to New York but returned to Israel to serve in the Yom Kippur War.

You know your way around FR. Is there some FAQ about which posts belong where? I was certain this would fit under announcements, but I guess not. Not the first time I seem to have gotten a status wrong.

You put it in the right place, IMO.

Don't worry -- if it's not in the right place, they'll move it for you........LOL.

It's Sunday night.

Dennis Miller's HBO special is on tonight. Glad these two shows aren't on simultaneously.

I'm going to have to start subscribing to some kind of TV calendar; I miss a lot of shows I want to see because I don't remember they're on.

This ought to be a really great show. Total dedication by the Israelites, and total fear for the terrorists.

who says this will be any better? from the description it sounds like it may be more of the same. the emphasis is again on Israel's "revenge" mission. are the "real assassins" the terorists or will this be more image bashing of Israelis?
Since I don't get the DSC I'll rely on the informed ones to tell us how it is - meantime I'm boycotting the Hollywood version

Spielberg never stated specifically in the movie that Avner was still in NY.

My wife just noticed this and told me, half-way through. I've been watching bits and pieces since.

Thankfully, it is being reshown at 2 AM. VCR has been set and we plan to watch together, then share with friends who have seen the Spielberg mock-u-mentary.

The obvious implication left at the end of the movie which will mislead millions of movie-goers is that Avner chose his home to be Brooklyn over Israel out of rebellion against the Israeli stance.

This is disingenuous and a distortion of the truth to fit Spielberg's agenda.

nice how he "left out" a detail that he easily could have mentioned in the final credits/epilogue.

we always knew he was a communist (well, not when it comes to redistributing the millions he makes from his films) but at least he did a good job with WWII and private ryan. the latest job smacks of moralizing, which is probably why it is not the box office blockbuster that was expected.

people want black and white movies. they want the good guys to win and the bad guys to die. if spielberg had stuck to this formula (and the truth) he would be raking it in. but better to appease his leftie buddies who love the palestinians.

whaddya bet vanessa redgrave will be starring in his next flick?

It wasn't obvious to me. That's just where he decided to end the movie.

Yes, it just so happens that the main guy starts doubting Israeli methods in the last 30 minutes and settles in Brooklyn.

How convenient for Speilberg's agenda, although it didn't happen that way.
