Historical drama, Thriller
Steven Spielberg resumes his long-running tribute to America’s “Greatest Generation” with this Cold War historical spy drama, pitting Spielberg’s ideal integrity-filled Yankee, Tom Hanks, as a New York lawyer trying, circa 1960, to swing a spy-swap deal with balky Soviet and East German apparatchiks in the newly walled, divided city of Berlin. Hanks, Spielberg, screenwriters Joel and Ethan Coen (augmented by script doctor Matt Charman), and S’berg’s crack crew of scene-setters are all in tip-top form, and so is the supporting cast: Mark Rylance (as a laconic Russian spy), Mikhail Gorevoy (cagey KGB agent), Sebastian Koch (frustrated Stasi spy catcher), Amy Ryan (the Hanks character’s worried wife), and Dakin Matthews (a commie-hating New York judge). By now, we probably take Spielberg and his artistic preoccupations for granted. We shouldn’t. In anybody else’s hands this true-but-farfetched espionage yarn might have been a ripe cheese of cliché – director Spielberg makes it a full-course meal of bright characterization (135 min.).
