    In this steadily gripping hothouse of a thriller, it's Cooper -- funny, fierce and bug-wild -- who gives us a look into the abyss. show more

    Hanssen is such an enigma that any attempt to explain him has inherent interest. Breach expends too much energy on a minor functionary, but it is still worth seeing for its fleeting looks into a heart of darkness. show more

    Great movie! In the tradition of Hitchcock you know in advance how it will turn out, but the suspense is in trying to figure out how Cooper will get caught. Cooper's quiet intensity and the cast's low-key acting throughout were perfect... But reading the posts here it appears most of today's movie fans are more entertained by reality TV! I only pray Hollywood doesn't surrender. .
