Storyline

Spy vs. spy. Three Yale grads, class of 1954, join their respective countries' secret service. We follow them for 40 years - through the outing of a British spy, the Hungarian revolution, the Bay of Pigs, the scent of moles, and the collapse of the USSR. Fictional characters - Yalies Jack McCauliffe, Leo Kritzky, and Yevgeny Tsipin and Jack's boss Harvey Torriti - rub shoulders with real figures like Kim Philby and James Angleton to tell stories of romance, intrigue, double-crosses, false leads, suicide, execution, and exile - in the name of ideology, patriotism, paranoia, perfidy, and one-upsmanship. Can the CIA claim any credit in the West's Cold War triumph? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

superb movie
11 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a lover of history and good cinema, this movie was most enjoyable. I am not knowledgeable enough to speak about the historical accuracy of the entire work; however, I know that it is based on historical fact.

I'm totally fascinated by the history of the CIA; especially in the time period covered in this film. I greatly admire the vast majority of the members of the CIA with whom I have read books, articles, and seen movies portraying their life.

As far as the enjoyment level of this as a film, I am very pleased with the balance of history, information, substance, action, military footage, personal life info, etc. WELL DONE! I would love to see this series added to as time goes on (though I realize that is not likely). I'm not familiar with the original book nor the author; however, I will immediately investigate both.
