One Day in September

It's been aired before and it's already on DVD and all, but One Day in September is a must see. It's on HBO again this Saturday. For those of us born after the 72 Games, it's a pretty good viewing for portaying the events around the 72 Munich Games hostage situation.

I had heard about the hostage crisis in Munich, but until I saw this documentary, I had no idea what a mess the entire thing was. I also recommend that every one see this.

Yes it was. Pretty sure it was 1999.

Pretty much the same experience here. The one moment that sticks out for me is when

Spoiler:
Jim McKay broadcasts the news that "They are all gone". That must have been pretty powerful when said on live television.....

this film won the oscar in 2000 as best documentary.

i can recommend it also, even i am not agreeing in every point. so i was missing more background information about several motivations of people doing things, also i missed, especially on the DVD, background information about the political situation in Germany these days.

as i am living in munich, it was for me also quite unbelievable that all the cops are seeming absolutely uncoordinated, but i can imagine that, because it was the time before terrorism in germany. the police had absolutely no experience with coping this kind of perpetrate. the terroristic resistance movement called RAF was just growing, and it's a fact of history, that because of this and the '72 hostage case they decided to found special anti-terrorist forces. all this is not even mentioned within this documentary, too bad...
