User Reviews

Very good Cold War spy thriller.

This well directed spy drama is based on the transcripts of public hearings, interviews, and published sources relating to the defection of KGB agent Yuri Nosenko in 1962. The gaps where direct evidence was unavailable were filled in by the film makers. Tommy Lee Jones gives a tremendous performance as CIA agent Steve Daley. Oleg Rudnik is also good as Nesenko.
