'Munich' and 'Syriana' Among AFI's 10 Best

Steven Spielberg's "Munich," which centers on the aftermath of the killings of 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympics, and the oil-industry thriller "Syriana" were named Sunday among the American Film Institute's 10 best movies of 2005.

The other films AFI selected were: "Brokeback Mountain," "Capote," "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," "King Kong," "Crash," "Good Night, and Good Luck," "The Squid and the Whale" and "A History of Violence."

The institute also named its 10 best television programs, with honorees including "24," "Battlestar Galactica," and "Lost."

The AFI Awards honor film and television creative ensembles as a whole, both in front of and behind the camera. A luncheon recognizing the honorees will be held Jan. 13.

The selections in each category were made by two juries of industry professionals, scholars, critics and AFI trustees, among others.
