#4 BRIDGE OF SPIES


Starring Tom Hanks, Mark Rylance, Amy Ryan and Alan Alda. Written by Matt Charman, Ethan Coen and Joel Coen. Directed by Steven Spielberg. Budget  $40 million.  Running time: 141 mintues.

When a Russian spy is caught by the CIA Tom Hanks is appointed his lawyer in his trial for treason. Then when he's secured a life sentence rather than execution, Hanks finds himself shipped off to Berlin to facilitate the exchange of the Russian Spy for a shot down US spy plane pilot.

This came out in 2015, but only caught up with it this year. My bad. A wonderful film that gripped and captivated despite not having a single car chase, shoot out and fight. It was brilliantly directed by Spielberg and Tom Hands was da bomb! If you haven't seen this you must, it's fascinating. The time flew by and the whole thing was fantastically thrilling and engrossing. Well worth a punt!

9/10
