01.10.06Netflix geez, when did Phillip Noyce become more than a by-the-numbers action director? I mean Dead Calm sure... but since then. Damn, now I guess I have to see Rabbit-Proof Fence.

So I love that this is an actual spy movie. I hate that most people today equate that with the Pierce Brosnan James Bond movies. Although I guess spy movies of today are more like Syriana... and this is more of a throwback to when spies were still cool... but hey, that doesn't make this movie any less cool. I was reminded of Ellroy's latest book a lot with all that stuff about the first inklings of American involvement in vietnam... a very interesting time if you ask me because it's not all war glory and defeat but real turmoil and behind-the-scenes good stuff that significantly less people know about than Platoon or Hamburger Hill.

so yeah, color me impressed, Mr. Noyce.
