Lazy Sunday Movies: Spy vs. Spy
Posted June 16, 2013on:
Good Sunday, Widdershins.
There has been so much of an uproar this week about surveillance that the only reasonable topic for this post is spy movies. I grew up on them as the spy films were a staple of the Cold War era, and Bond movies reigned supreme during the Sixties and Seventies. Beyond Bond, there is an abundance of wonderful flicks filled with heart-stopping moments and underscored by plots and subplots galore. Some of the old black and whites are among my favorites. My initial list of favorites contained 28 films, and it was no easy task to eliminate all but five. They are listed below in no particular order Feel free to post yours, or anything else that you would like in this otherwise open thread.
(1) North by Northwest – 1959
(2) Three Days of the Condor, 1975
(3) The Falcon and the Snowman – 1985
(4) The Good Shepherd, 2006
(5) The Ipcress File, 1965
