05.27.07Internet A newbie FBi dude has to uncover old pro Robert Hanssen as a spy. ahhh, government office work. I can vouch for them getting the low-level everyday working environment right, but it's funny to hear my dad talk about these movies and list the various inaccuracies... kinda like how I cringe whenever some computer guru starts up with his technical mumbo jumbo. I'm happy to state that the computer work in this movie is pretty real though... about time. I guess everyone in the world has to be familiar with something before Hollywood finally concedes and stops making it up off the top of their head. Maybe one day we'll all be meteorologists and they'll have to stop putting the thunder sound effects immediately as the lightning flashes in every storm in every movie ever made. someday.

anyway, i can't imagine this movie being interesting to anyone not explicitly interested in Robert Hanssen. It's remarkably monochromatic and visually uninteresting - basically all you have to look at is Chris Cooper's creepy hawk eyes - and slow as all hell. still, I kinda liked it. I don't know how close to the truth they were but if I choose to believe they paid meticulous attention to every detail (and why shouldn't I believe, they got the computers right) then it's also educational.
