I've seen both Munich
, the film by Spielberg, and Visions of Eigh
t, the film about the Olympics.
I think Munich
is the best of Spielberg's film. It is particularly good in capturing the atmosphere around extremist groups in the early 70s.
As for Visions of Eight
it is an irregular film, IMO. Eight different directors had to come with different quality in their segments. The one I'd rescue is "The Losers", by Claude Lelouch. It does bring you into tears, without being obvious -as in the Hollywood tradition.
Oh, and it's interesting to note that in the Olympic film, the trageedy of the Israeli athletes comes only in one segment, "The Farthest" (by the way, the British marathoner was more worried about the impact of the extra day of rest in his training than about the death of other athletes).
