Bridge of spies (2015)

Paranoia, prejudice, propaganda. This is a morality play if ever there was one. Democracy with a capital D against the menacing Reds, plus idealism against realism on several levels. Delightfully oldfashioned in everything from tight-knit story, tense coldwar settings, and grand Hollywoodish treatment – yet with necessary contemporary touches and details on the sly.

Solid script, acting, and execution, keeping up most of the momentum despite the long running time. In my book of spies.
