>>>>>>>GENERAL THOUGHTS<<<<<<<

Additional thoughts on the film "Munich":

After the fact, there are no legitimate moral quandries; after the fact, there is only judgment. And, if one is lucky, mercy.

The time for moral quandries is before the fact. People who consider questions of morality only after the fact are generally only seeking a way to lessen their deserved guilt for a recently concluded immoral act.

In drama, the time for questioning morality is in Act One and Act Two. In Act Three, after the climactic deed is decided upon and perpetrated, there is only time for consequences...and the often tragic lessons to be drawn.
