One Day In September

With Steven Spielberg's "Munich" coming out today, I would be remiss if I didn't highly recommend Kevin McDonald's One Day In September, a documentary from 1999 about the same. Michael Douglas narrates, and it features interviews with a lot of the key media players and a lot of archival footage, including shots of what happened at the airport when everything went down the tubes. You come away from this secure in the creepy conviction that the Germans actually helped the Palestinians get away with this - the security and negotiations were flawed and almost not taken seriously (!). Netflix this bitch today.
