The sex scene of Munich is the frame of Saving Private Ryan—major blemishes in major films, examples of Spielberg’s underlining when it isn’t needed. Still, 99% of both films prove great. Munich, in particular, shows that Spielberg can do anything, as intense a Euro thriller as any. Other than the great 70s roaming-camera setpieces, perfectly edited by Michael Kahn, the best part of Munich is the theme of food & music with strangers. It's what makes us human, that is what our violent tendencies work against. Breaking bread with strangers--the final scene is the right kind of underlining of this, and it's a better example than the penultimate sex/airport cross-cutting sequence.
Spielberg is wrestling with the US’s contemporary war and politics through the lens of the turbulent 70s, and he will continue to focus on his concerns with contemporary politics moving forward in his filmography, culminating in his America Trilogy of the 2010s.
