Storyline

In February 1964, three months after President Kennedy's assassination. Major Yuri Nosenko of the KGB makes secret contact with a young CIA officer, Steve Daley. He has startling information about the KGB's link with Kennedy's killer, Lee Harvey Oswald, and he wants Daley to help him defect. So begins one of the strangest stories of the Cold War, as Nosenko's defection leads the CIA on a hunt for a Soviet mole who they suspect has penetrated to the very heart of their organisation.

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.
