Bridge of Spies (2015)
During the Cold War, an American lawyer is recruited to defend an arrested Soviet spy in court, and then help the CIA facilitate an exchange of the spy for the Soviet captured American U2 spy plane pilot, Francis Gary Powers.
Love me some Tom Hanks, he’s so phenomenal, probably my favorite actor of all time.
Didn’t expect to get so angry while watching this, I ended up getting so frustrated and eventually depressed that nothing ever seems to change.
Still, I liked the movie a lot. It was about a time period I’m interested in and talked about something I wasn’t familiar with. There were a few parts where I feel that Spielberg went over the top, the end with the boys climbing over the fence was too much and didn’t need to be there.
Looking at the Oscars this movie has been nominated for I’m kind of surprised. There was so much silence in the movie I’m not sure why it’s being considered for Best Original Score or Sound Mixing. Honestly the only Oscar nomination I agree with is the Best Supporting Actor, but I’d have to see who he’s up against. Of course, I don’t watch the Oscars, they never seem to nominate anything I like or go to the “right” winner, it seems like a lot of politics involved.
Anyway, really liked it, loved Hanks, world please learn from our history.
