The spy who came in from the cold

The protagonist says:
What do you think spies are? Moral philosophers who measure everything under the will of God or Karl Marx? They are not. They are just a bunch of seedy squalid bastards like me. Little men- queers, drunkards, henpecked husbands, civil servants- playing cowboys to brighten their rotten little lives. Do you think they sit like monks in London balancing good and evil?

This is easily the best spy movie I have ever seen.
Intelligent. Intricately woven. Honest. Cynical.
James Bond turns out to be just another action hero with the job tag of a ‘spy’ to cook up some reason to show many foreign locales. If you really want to see how spies operate, this is one of the movies that you should see.

  1. ‘The spy who came in from the cold’.
    Will watch it as soon as i get hold of it. I think it’s available on Bog Flix.
    Most of the Cold War spy books made great films- Odessa File, Fourth Protocol, Sum of All fears.
    I personally like Bourne series to be better spy movies than recent James Bond ones.
