I don't know what they taught you in the classroom about intelligence and espionage. Everything I know, I learned on the street, but I can assure you of one thing: It has no size, no shape and no rules. At the very best it's what you least expect so you've gotta be ready for anything.

Excellent job at capturing the flavor of the 50's and 60's cold war
I can't believe anyone would not think this is a 4 star movie, great performances, complex plot and no "James Bond" gadgetry, this is really good stuff. The film has a grainy quality that's perfect for the time and subject matter. The characters are real, human, flawed and believable. In a time where most "thrillers" insult our basic reasoning, this presents a picture of all the human foibles that allow people to be manipulated in various fashions. Similar in feel and texture to " The Spy Who Came in From The Cold " this movie offers some unique performances from some "big names" in unusual roles. The ending is filled with some twists and turns that make this movie well worth seeing.
