The Good Shepherd

While we were in Arkansas we went and watched The Good Shepherd with Angeline Jolie and Matt Damon. Overall review of this movie: excellent. The suspense builds in this movie as each piece of the puzzle falls into place. The storytelling was well done - a series of flashbacks and mysterious plot hints that traverse WWII and the Cold War, tracing the birth of the CIA through one man's life. Matt Damon does an excellent job in this film and I think that the imagery, color and music really set an excellent backdrop to depicting the shadowy and lonely world inhabited by these characters.

I don't think we have been to a movie theater in over a year. This was a nice way to get back into the swing of seeing a movie every once in a while. Highly recommended.
