If this is not your thing, please don't bash-just move on.

Looking for ideas and some recommendations:

The Red Sea Divers Resort
Operation Finale

Has anyone seen either of those yet?

I have seen and recommend:
Raid on Entebbe / Operation Thunderbolt (don't remember which I like better)
Beneath the Helmet
Woman in Gold
The Zookeepers Wife

Could not sit through Munich.

I do not believe Beneath the Scarlet Sky has been released yet -appreciate info.

Please provide recommendations!!!!
TIA

I can recommend Operation Finale. Also, The Pianist, though it's not on your list.

Great.
Thank you.

I wanted people to add to the list, that is what I am hoping for. I just didn't think it fair to ask for recommendations without providing some as well.

The Red Sea Divers Resort - Mossad takes over a resort in the Sudan and uses it to smuggle Jews from Ethiopia to Israel

Operation Finale -capturing Eichmann

Raid on Entebbe / Operation Thunderbolt (don't remember which I like better) - French/PLO hijacked plane and held Jews hostage. Yoni Netanyahu was the commander or the rescue unit and was killed.

Beneath the Helmet - follows 5 IDF chayalim. A fabulous documentary

Woman in Gold - the nazi theft of art and the lawsuit to return it to its rightful Jewish owner.

The Zookeepers Wife - Zookeepers wife hids Jews during the holocaust

Munich. - 1972 summer Olympics in Germany, Black September (Palestinian terrorists) took hostage and killed 11 Memebers of the Israeli team.

Beneath the Scarlet Sky- (see the Aish website) the life story of an 18 year old Italian and his resistance during WWII
The book was fabulous.

I found it disturbing because the viewer ends the movie feeling bad for the German kid instead of the Jews, among other things.
