The Falcon and the Snowman

The Falcon and the Snowman ★★★★

This is one of those near-anomalies in American cinema: the "truther" film. The paranoia of hiding a secret imbues every frame, and that's what makes it so compelling. The performances are serviceable, but the craftsmanship is better. What happened to the real-life people after the events of the film is even weirder. A friendly reminder that Snowden and Assange are not the first "traitors" to get in hot water with the CIA.
