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. .

What kind of Pen was Hannsen refering to in the movie when he said, "these are the greatest pens in the world, I would not use anything else

A decent movie all together .. But probably the dryest movie I've ever seen.
Just saw the best intrigue as of late; and, no bang-em-up, bloody violence as in so much of today's media. Lot's of true deception by an intelligent, but religious fanatic/sexual deviant. Cooper should be nominated for an academy award for his exceptional job of playing the part of Hanssen. Am anxious to read the book...........
