  • Even with its first-rate cast, current political relevance and tangled mysteries, The Good Shepherd remains as remote as Wilson himself. But frankly, if the lives of CIA spies are really this dreary, they may as well keep their secrets to themselves. show more

    Matt Damon and I will be agreeable that visual performances are dynamically changing. This film was a climatic experience because unlike its previously spy thriller thematics; it had a criminology.
