‘Striking Distance’ (R) (428 words)
In "Striking Distance," a darkly entertaining adventure, Pittsburgh homicide detective Tom Hardy (Bruce Willis) has a bad first reel.
In a tradition that seems blessedly old-fashioned in terms of police procedure, "Striking Distance" unfolds with a genuine mood of mystery.
Adept viewers may not be quite as bamboozled as Hardy and the police as to the identity of the killer, but the push and pull of clue and discovery keeps the film taut, and the scenes played out on the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers are action-packed and curiously believable.
Striking Distance — A Jewish Magazine, an Interfaith Movement (1789 words)
Klein’s new book, Striking Back: The 1972 Munich Olympics Massacre and Israel’s Deadly Response, is an inside look at the workings of the Mossad and the upper echelons of the Israeli government during this fraught time.
Based on over 50 interviews with people at all levels of operation – “from the foot soldiers [to the] commanders,” Klein says – as well as Israeli archival material and a never-before-released report, the book is journalistically exacting but reads like a novel.
He is a reporter, and he has a reporter’s eye for detail; in Striking Back, these details are used to devastating effect.
