Earnest docudrama long on "docu", short on drama
19 November 2001 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Yuri Nosenko, KGB" tells the story of the defection of a Soviet man of the same name, claiming to be a top level KGB agent with information about JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald though subsequent interrogation was inclusive. A slow moving and bland film of technical and artistic mediocrity, "Nosenko" leans toward a realistic presentation of what was a historically significant but not particularly interesting incident as films go. Recommended for those with an interest in spy flicks.
