The Good Shepherd

Rated 3.0

A film about the birth of the CIA written by an Oscar-winning screenwriter and featuring an ensemble of great actors would seem to be a can’Robert De NiroMatt Damons probably more accurate. Not that it’s a boring film. It’s fascinating (and sometimes confusing) to watch the cat-and-mouse stories unfold as the film jumps back and forth between time periods, and the acting is top notch (guys like Alec Baldwin and William Hurt can just stand there and be enjoyable to watch).
