I watched The Good Shepherd yesterday. I taped it when Showtime was a free preview. It has Matt Damon, Angelina Jolie (she’s so pretty), Alec Baldwin, Billy Crudup, Robert De Niro (he’s the director too), Michael Gambon, William Hurt, Mark Ivanir, Timothy Hutton, and Joe Pesci in it.
Big Warning: there is some violence and some sad parts.
This movie is about the beginning of the CIA. Edward Wilson was one of the founding fathers of the CIA. Before the CIA was established, he was asked to spy on one of his teachers which was suspected to be having a Nazi club. He didn’t really want to at first until he discovered his teacher had lied to him about a poem. After that, he was recruited to the British Intelligence office. He did get into some sticky situations, but he stuck with being part of the CIA.
There were some parts I didn’t like, but I did enjoy the movie. Next week I’m watching The Rendezvous.
