Munich (2005) as Screenwriter
In September of 1972 an unprecedented terrorist attack unfolded live before 900 million television viewers across the globe and ushered in a brave new world of unpredictable violence. It was the second week of the Summer Olympics, and in Munich, West Germany, the games that had been dubbed "The Olympics of Peace and Joy" were off to a rousing start.

But even that starts to fray as the four men begin to argue among themselves about the unsettling questions that just won't go away: "Who exactl
