Point overlooked

BATYA DAGAN’S hateful dismissal of Steven Spielberg and his entire body of work as worthless because he has equalized Jewish avengers with killers of Jewish innocents in “Munich” [Letters, Dec. 25] lost all its punch when she admitted, “There is no chance in hell I am going to see Spielberg’s decrepit movie.”

IRONICALLY, perhaps prophetically, I put “Munich” at the top of my end-of-the-year must-see movie list after reading Batya Dagan’s letter of condemnation of both Spielberg and “Munich,” a film she has not even seen.

What Dagan fails to appreciate is that one of Spielberg’s many accomplishments in this brave, bold work is not to acquit anyone of their responsibility but to remind us that in refusing to see the humanity of our enemies, we risk losing our own.
