The Good Shepherd (2006)
ACHIEVEMENT IN ART DIRECTION Edward Wilson, the only witness to his father's suicide and member of the Skull and Bones Society while a student at Yale, is a morally upright young man who values honor and discretion, qualities that help him to be recruited for a career in the newly founded Central Intelligence Agency. While working there, his ideals gradually turn to suspicion influenced by the Cold War paranoia present within the office. Eventually, he becomes an influential veteran operative, while his distrust of everyone around him increases to no end. His dedication to his work does not come without a price though, leading him to sacrifice his ideals and eventually his family. This movie stars Matt Damon, Robert DeNiro, Angelina Jolie, Joe Pesci and Alec Baldwin and let me tell you, it is a fantastic movie. I would not be surprised if Robert DeNiro who directed, gets an Academy Award. The moive is long (3 hrs) but somehow, it goes by extremely fast. It is a very very good movie, not to be missed.

Based on the true story, FBI upstart Eric O'Neill enters into a power game with his boss, Robert Hanssen, an agent who was ultimately convicted of selling secrets to the Soviet Union. The film stars Catherine Burdon as Agent Debra Nece, Jeffrey Coleman as FBI Agent #1 and Chris Cooper as Robert Hanssen. I followed the story while it unfolded and read a great article about it in 'Vanity Fair'. We just saw the movie yesterday and I wasn't disappointed. Chris Cooper and Ryan Phillippe are extraordinary as Robert Hanssen and Eric O'Neill. I highly recommend!
